embed tag name in a text note

Recommended Posts

Straight Answer:  Yes, but it will not be recognized as a tag.  There is only one place to assign a Tag, in the Tags field of the Note.

You can put a keyword that is the same as a tag name in the Title, and search on it using:

Evernote will not use special symbols for searching in the body or Title.  So a search for @keyword wll find all instances of "keyword", with and without a prefix of "@".

straight to the question: can I add or create a tag directly in a note text or in its title?

There's nothing to stop you, but I think a more accurate term is keyword

- The Evernote tags are a more precise list.  
- You will never have spelling variations.
- When tagging, you get a list of possible choices.

- When typing a note, you don't interrupt your chain of thought.
- When exporting your notes, your information is sure to be there
  I do an html export as part of my backup procedures but it doesn't show my tags;
  Correction - Tags are included in the HTML code as Meta

Hi everyone,

it would however be particularly convenient. For instance, when sharing to EverNote from the Mac OS X extension menu, there is no way to add any tag, only to type text. Why not implement an auto recognition as in the "mail to evernote", "@" for the notebooks and "#" for the tags (or whatever symbol, if you want to distinguish from the other apps and services).

For the moment, if you use this OS X sharing, you have to go back in Evernote afterwards and sort the notes that you created by this way. What a loss of time, it is actually the main obstacle preventing me to use Evernote professionally and to pay for premium.

I really hope that a developper of Evernote will see this message and consider this suggestion, or at least explain this lack, which has kept me away from Evernote for a long time - although I tried it several times.

The Evernote Tags are embedded in the HTML code.

Thanks - You're right, along with created and updated dates (sample below).
Thats fantastic; it solves my problem with lost info in html exports.

You're welcome.  Of course you can write a simple AppleScript or JXA script to read these meta tags from the HTML file.
