freyja313 46 Posted September 19, 2016 Share Posted September 19, 2016 The following might seem a little obsessive-compulsive but that's how I roll... My Rule: Every note has to have at least one "valid" tag applied to it. My Truth: A lot of times I add notes and don't tag them right away so every so often I go through all untagged notes and tag them properly. My Problem: While going through a note cleanup project recently, rather than tag some of the "cleaned up" untagged notes properly, I tagged them with single semi-valid-to-those-notes placeholder tags and now want to go back and find those notes and add the additional "valid" tags they should have. Because the placeholder tags I used for these notes are valid tags in their own right, I can't just search for all notes tagged with "X" tag, plus I also am not sure which placeholder tag may have been applied to those notes anyway. However, since I know the notes that were tagged as part of that project only have a single tag on them, I want to track down all notes that have a single tag and then review those notes to make sure they're tagged properly. I tried to find info on searching for notes that have only one tag on them and stumbled across these posts: That first thread indicated you could sort by tags in list view and you should easily be able to see which notes only have one tag on them. Problem is I have about 4000 notes and 170 tags so that's not really feasible for me. I *did* discover that if I select and copy the list of notes using CTRL-A and CTRL-C, I can paste the list into Excel, then use the Text to Columns command on the Tags column to separate each tag into its own column and then delete the rows that contain more than one tag. Once that's done, I should be able to quickly review what's left and clean up from there. <Insert "Ta-da!" emoticon here.> Link to comment
