(Archived) What prefix/separator marker to use for "@"



I'm looking for a standard separator to replace all my previous uses of "@" as a keyword marker. I tried *, &, $, _ and they are all also treated as whitespace.

Suggestions? Is this style of defining search keywords deprecated in Evernote?

At the bottom of the note, I'll often add keywords. Sometimes they are prefaced with the word, keyword & sometimes not. IMO, "keywords" are words simply added to the note so you'll find that note when doing a search on words. IE, if I have a note pertaining to "Joe Shafer", I will add a keyword of "Shaffer", in case I forget how his name is spelled. It sounds like what you're trying to do is not so much keywords as tags. So instead of adding @work to the note, you may just want to tag the notes with "work".

BurgerNFries - Great suggestion.

I am using the Keyword: xxxxx concept to reduce the number of tags.

When I find a tag that has only 1 or 2 notes, I add the Keyword to the note(s) and then delete the tag.
