Vitruvia 4 Posted February 19, 2016 Share Posted February 19, 2016 I was thinking, do we need notebooks at all? From what I see, one could replace a notebook with just one extra tag. For example, you have a notebook about bears, inside this notebook you have several information about bears like their physical attributes, their habits, etc. Let's say you are using a tag for each of these things: you'll have a notebook called Bears and many notes tagged with either physical, habits, etc. Now, if you wanted to search for just the physical attributes of bears, you could go into your Bears notebook, choose "search inside this context only" and choose the physical tag. What I'm asking is, how more effective is this when compared to simply adding a Bears tag to every note about bears, and when you want to search for the physical attributes of bears, you just choosing both Physical and Bears tags? On top of that, I feel notebooks make it difficult when you have converging subjects. Let us say, for example, I have an article about what types of honey are preferred by bears, now let us say I also have a notebook about honey, and that I'd like to have this information on both my Bears notebook and on my Honey notebook. To do that, I'd have to copy the note into both notebooks, and thus I'd have duplicated notes that might show up when I search for the subject. Now, if I happened to use only tags, I could tag a single note with Bears, Food, and Honey, for example, and if I happened to be searching for honey only when related to bears, all I'd have to do would be to choose both Honey and Bears tags. So, what do you think, do we need notebooks at all? Link to comment
