    The majority of my short cuts are saved searches and not notes.  I should not have used the note example.  I see the problem with adding styles to individual notes and I'm not requesting that.  My individual note shortcuts could be easily changed to a saved search, so I guess what is really desired is a way to style saved searches and as Peter mentioned, they are looking into it.

    I agree with s2sailor. Most of my 50-70 shortcuts are saved searches (time-based or topic-based or a combination of both (e.g. projects uncompleted ="tag:project*   todo:false" or   appointments current week = "reminderTime:week -reminderTime:week+1 -tag:"XYZ"). It would be great to structure those shortcut list by style.

    It the side list view is also accessible through Ctrl-F7.  It is visible in the view drop down next to the search bar.

    You are right, thanks, and It's curious:

    Via this dropdown or Ctrl+F5, Ctr-F6, Ctrl+F7 one can switch over to these different views of the note list  (vertical with details is new for me, sorting very easy now).
    Or just switch with F5 only - and get different results depending on the default (vertical or horizontal) in the beginning.

    A good example, tells me that trial and error can achieve very useful results.

    My opinion is that if you set it up right, the white space also makes the colors, which you can add individually to to each notebook and tag, stand out both in the left panel and in the note list which makes it easier to identify.

    I agree totally.

    BTW In your screenshot I realized the note list above  the selected note. In V5 you have the choice between this display as a short list and a more detailed display in the middle between left (shortcuts) and right (note) window. Can be switched  with Ctrl+F5 and Ctrl+F6. This seems to be gone in V6 ?

    I myself prefer the 2. option = note list in the middle. 2 reasons:

        1. If exist pictures are displayed, easy to identify special notes. No display in the short list
        2. I have 3 vertical windows: left window approx 15% of width =shortcuts etc - middle window 20-25%=note list - right window 60%=note. This means an optimizing of reading the note (news paper, text in columns to keep the movement of eyes as low as possible)
    (Sometimes one has the problem that it needs scrolling to the right when there is no wrapping as in e.g. outlook. Don't have a solution. Same problem when open a note in a separate window)

    shortcuts in the tool bar.

    ... versus shortcuts in the side bar...

    I prefer Shortcuts in the side bar  because having a list of several items reading is more comfortable when they are in vertical display

    Besides that the shortcuts in the  tool bar seem to have a bug - in V5 and V6 as well: I have approx. 50-60 shortcuts, the first 6 or 7 are displayed in the tool bar, the dropdown button only shows the last 30 shortcuts - those in the middle are not displayed nor in other access.

    - Search for tags/notebooks doesn't search within words

    I agree and think this is annoying and destroys my tag philosphy. I use tags only with a category prefix e.g. pers_Fischer, comp_Fischer, project_Fischer. Searching in V5 one gets a list with  proposals, tags and recently used searches even when your input is Fischer only = in the middle of the tag. A very comfortable selection of items one can choose from.
    In V6 this way of selected list is gone. Input "Fischer" results in nothing. You have to start with the first character and have to remember this. This matches the syntax: tag:*Fischer  does not work.
    Hope this will me modified.
