tag assignments were gone

Recommended Posts



some days ago starting EN I found more than 30 notes (of more than 3.000 totally) without any tags. Therefore I had to tag again...



Windows 8.1 - Evernote

I use a search  "-tag:*" to find untagged notes

less than 10 notebooks, some hundreds of different tags

all notes have to be tagged (my approach)


Any idea about the reason?

Hi.  I've never noticed tags going missing in this way - were the tags themselves deleted?  Or just notes without tags which you were able to re-apply immediately?  Are they recent notes,  old ones,  or a selection of both?


Is it possible that you

  • forgot to apply tags in these cases?
  • imported these notes from an ENEX file?
  • adopted them from a shared note or notebook?
  • rescued them from the Trash or Conflicting Changes notebooks?

I'd suggest you set up a saved search for notes with no tags and keep a watch to see if this happens again...

@ gazumped

thanks for your profound answer.


  • As I tried to explain: I assign one or more tags to any note the same day they are created in EN -  I use this search "-tag*" as a favorite - that means: these notes has been tagged in the past
  • tags and notes were not new (different dates) , one notebook, approx. 8-10 different tags (still exist)  - I could't discover any archetype
  • no import from ENEX, no shared notebook nor note, no rescue from trash etc

I will observe this + report if it will happen again.
