  1. Thank you Jeff. I think a lot of us can benefit from your suggestion. I've tried a number of different setups to make this work but for some reason this simple idea never occurred to me, So now I have set up top level tags for my different areas and it is working nicely. I made them in all caps, bold and in red to stand out. Filing tags are under a tag called "_FILE CABINET" and my whole current set of tags are under that. (underscore so it is at the top of the list) Other top level tags I've added are "BUSINESS", "RESEARCH", and "HEALTH EXERCISE & NUTRITION". I will probably end up adding hundreds of new tags to each of those for subjects, names, jobs recipes etc. These can be set up in different ways, stay completely separated from each other, and stay collapsed and out of sight when I'm not using them.
  2. I can see a number of reasons why you want this. If I have a notebook that is strictly used for business for instance, why do i need (or want) to have my tag list view for that notebook show all my non business related tags? This is one situation that is an issue for me. Another is that I would like to use EN in unrelated ways that have completely separate systems of tagging. I use EN now mainly as a filing system and I (finally) have a nice clean and simple system of tags that works great for that. I would love to use EN for research as well, but I'm not willing to clutter up my current tag list/system with the hundreds of new tags that would require. (I currently use One Note for research). If the tags were specific to notebooks, that would no longer a problem.
  3. This is not working for me when i add a keyword. If I type "any: tag:statement tag:bill ABCorp", I want to see every note that has ABCorp in the body, tagged with bill or statement. Instead it brings up every note that has ABCorp in it regardless of tag.
  4. Jeff, I see what your saying. I am still trying to figure out the best way to organize notes, I was thinking things like jobs, projects, bids in the categories group, things that will continually grow and change.my tags would be a select list of items that would not change. Things like bills, receipts, budget, etc. that would be associated with a category, and other things like auto, family, insurance, tax, books etc.
  5. It is the same thing, in the sense that tags can be a descriptive label of anything. I guess I'm used to a framework that separates those labels. (outlook: categories/tags, toodledo: projects/contexts/tags, quicken: categories/tags.) Like sub notebooks, it may diminish the simplicity of the program, but it may help (inside-the-box people like me) conceptually and add some functionality.
  6. I use only two notebooks, business and personal, and everything else gets organized with tags. But now my tag list is getting overly bloated. For instance, under the tag jobs, I might have 100 or so specific jobs per year as sub tags. Same thing for bids, customers, vendors or any other list related tag. It would be helpful for situations like that to to have another organizational level of categories, in order to keep the tags list at a reasonable level and also create a more properly structured filing system.
