Rob Freundlich 146 Posted December 30, 2014 Share Posted December 30, 2014 My tag hierarchy is starting to get large, complex, and deep. I'm using a dot separator for the hierarchy (so, for example, I have person.FredFlintstone and person.BarneyRubble as part of my person hierarchy [no, not really - they're examples]). When I want to tag a note, I can start typing in the tag entry area, and it'll show me all tags that start with what I've typed so far. So, for example, if I type "p", I get all of my "person" tags. Very nice. Sometimes, I'll have the same subtag under two different top-level tags. For example, I might have funny.picture and interesting.picture. When I'm adding a picture and I want to tag it, it'd be useful to be able to type "picture" into the tagging area and have it show those two tags, even though they don't start with "picture". A lot of code editors do this, or at least have options for it, and it's extremely helpful. As an added bonus, code editors will often offer shortcuts for long words using capitalization as a cue. For example, I could type p.FF, and it'd show "person.FredFlintstone". Both of these changes would make navigating/selecting large tag hierarchies much easier. Link to comment
