Evernote update Tags View

Recommended Posts

Since the evernote update, I can't figure out how to view my tags similar to the screenshot below from the Evernote "How to" page. How do I get a similar view? I used to be able to click on "Tags" and this view would be generated.

You can't . Evernote in it's infinite wisdom and knowledge of how everyone uses the app felt that this view was too confusing. Tough luck on those of us who found it a very important part of how we use Evernote.

Here is what I'm doing in version 6.0.5 to simulate the old tag view style:

Create an arbitrary tag with a . prefix so that it is near the top of your main a-z tag list. This will mean either right-clicking on the Tag icon and selecting "Create tag ..." or right-clicking your main a-z parent tag and selecting "Create tag in .evaluate ..."

Since I had dumped my tags into a parent tag, I'm using .evaluate in these examples.

Right-click .evaluate and select "Create tag in .evaluate ..." (if not using a parent tag, just click on the Tag icon as stated above)

Create the tag a.aaa (the period might help bring the new tag to the top of your list of tags beginning with the letter "a".)

Click on the first tag that begins with the letter "a"

Scroll down to the last tag that begins with the letter "a"

Hold the shift button down and click on the last tag

Let both mouse and keyboard keys go

Scroll back to the first tag 

Click-and-Drag the highlighted group until the cursor is directly over the new a.aaa tag

Drop the tags into their new parent

Click the little triangle to the left of the a.aaa tag, to collapse the list

Repeat all these steps for tags b.bbb through z.zzz


As you were building this, you will have noticed that the Note List displays only the tags in the letter grouping. (If you don't see the Note List, press  F11)

This technique may not get you 100% simulation (such as scrolling) but it certainly makes it more simple to move tags to different parents without interminable scrolling through the leftmost column.
