  1. The Ctrl-Alt-T's shortcoming is no filtering support, so we have to look for the target tag in a stack only with our eyes , which is so slow and ineffective.


    The Alt-F2 and Drag way's shortcoming is that, once after I add a tag to a certain note in the -tag:* search list, this note will disappear in the note list immediately, because it's no longer compliant with -tag:*, which make it impossible to add the follow-up tags.


    If the tag on the toolbar support not only prefix match, but also searching, it indeed completely solves my needs. But it seems not support yet, right?


    So for now, what is the fastest way to add multiple tags to a note?

    Try un-checking Match tags by prefix in the tag picker, Tools - Options - Navigation.  Typing Life should return all tags containing Life then.  If I understand what you are trying to do.

    I just found out so many evernote tips I did not know!

    After your remind, I find ALT-F2 is way much better than CTRL-ALT-T which I now use! If we only select tags, ALT-2 is even more useful than CTRL-Q which @gustavgi just teach me, and ALT-2 also support drag-and-drop!

    very very grateful to you and @gustavgi :) real Guru!

    As a workaround I suggest you try the Ctrl+Q search. Type Life and then drag-and-drop the tag you want to add to the note, onto the body of the note (or a note in the list).

    It also has the advantage that it highlights where in the tag name the searched word is matched, in yellow.

    Awesome! I never knew this ctrl-q feature, completely solve my problem, very very very grateful :)

    What exactly do you mean?

    Filter by only show tags with Book somewhere in the tag name, or, show tags with Book in the tag name as well as those tags child tags (even if they don't have book in their name)?

    `.Life.Hobby.Book` is a complete whole tag, do not misinterpret it into three tags. Maybe the way I named tags is easy to misunderstand, see this post.

    What I want is that when we type `Life` in the filter box, any tags that contains `life` should be listed, any tags that does not contain `life` should be hidden.

    Hi.  First, please don't 'bump' the thread - voting is better,  not against the forum rules,  makes life a little easier for the volunteers like me who (mainly) support and comment on posts... and is noted by Evernote as an indication that there are more folks interested in this idea than the many (thousands of) others around here.

    Second - there are a ton of work-arounds to make tags easier to apply,  including text expander software and the fact that in most Evernote tag dialogues,  tags in CSV format - ".life.diary.reading,.life.hobby.cooking" can be copy/ pasted or single-key text expanded into the relevant field and will then be parsed into two (or more) separate tags as required.

    Agreed the tag system could be much improved but I don't think this is by a long way Evernote's current main issue...

    My English is not so good, I'm not sure I understand your second point correctly. How the tags is resolved and what this post request seems irrelevant I think? The reason why I name tags in this way, is because with the combination of nested tags, when I search the parent tag, the child tags will be covered too. Like when I search `tag: Life.Hobby*`, every note marked as `tag:Life.Hobby.Books` and `tag:Life.Hobby.Tenis` will also appear in the search results. You cannot do it with combination of `notebook:xxx`, except by this way. Anyway, I'm off the topic.


    I agree that this `tag filter` feature, is likely in the bottom of the PM team's priority list.

    Pardon me to complain a little. In fact, for the 5+ years I use evernote, the official give me the impression that they move so SLOW. Look at its competitors `Wiz` in China. Wiz started its business later than evernote for many years, however Wiz now have 95%+ features evernote has, and at the same time, Wiz support `code highlighted(js/c/c++....)` `FULL markdown` `linux support` `multiple nested notebook` `more powerful crawler than EverClip`and many other features evernote don't have. I like evernote and I hope evernote move faster! 6.4 GA to 6.5 GA cost almost 5 months, and what new features was added? Only one `Enable on demand sync` which I never use. 5 months, Almost nothing!

    I know that the official may have reasons, such as software stability better than move fast, or compare so many platforms and features with little R&D resources, I understand that, but I still hope it move faster! Although this is not a note software, look at `MyLifeOrganized`. Everyone who used it would marvel at its strength. Please learn its spirit, the spirit of squeezing every feature a software can have, spirit of the craftsman!

  6. UPDATE:

    Awesome! I never knew this ctrl-q feature, completely solve my problem, very very very grateful :)



    When you're in evernote Windows, you have the ability to assign tags (Tag Note = CTRL+ALT+T). You get a list of Tags (see Attached)

    It would be great if this interface has the filtering feature.

    I have 400+ tags, each time I use this assign tags, I have to locate it in a bunch of tags, too painful and waste time.

    If you also support this feature, please bump or vote for it.


  7. I also need this feature.
    In theory, this is not difficult to achieve. Just like css `display: none`, add an item in context menu when right click the tag, after choose it, just hide this tag in the view. No other extra behavior need.

    Really hope this feature can added. I do not want to change my tag structure, it is an inconvenient and sloppy move.

    Then it sounds like Undo/Redo need to be fixed. And resizing in all cases. But if you don't want to resize your tables, then don't,

    And consider submitting that table to customer support, so they have a clear bug sample.

    Really hope there's an option to disable this feature, for users who don't need it, just the same as the option to disable "Automatically format text elements" feature, because I often hit it and change the column width by accident.

    And thanks for reminding! I will submit this table to customer support.

    Great solution! I find, however, pasting to evernote windows will make it FORCE CLOSE. Maybe the style code contained is parsed by evernote abnormally?
    like this gif demonstrated (4mb): Animation.gif


    and another fantastic way, like this post said, using "copy as rtf" feature of sublime text/notepad++/ultraedit, to paste code with style, also have an problem.
    Evernote will add extra spaces, like this gif demonstrated (900K): Animation1.gif


    really hope there's a better way.
