Ahh... yes, I understand. So in a sense you are still using a tagging type approach, but rather than use Evernote's Tag implementation you are instead encoding information (tags if you will) into every note's Title/Name field. It speaks volumes that Evernote's purpose-built tag features are unable to be an improvement for you over such a method -- and I'm sure you have lots of company. You're earlier comment suggesting a "serious overhaul" is needed seems right on. Well put, Jim, kudos for the clear analysis & reply....I appreciate that there's difficulty for developers in adding features, but it's very clear from this thread that Evernote's tagging help is sorely lacking. Evernote's sole function is to store clips & notes in an easily retrievable way. The lack of an intuitive tag system (even windows explorer is more helpful) hangs me up on almost every new note, which is most often a repeat of the previous tags I've just selected. Why can't each tag from the previous be auto-suggested? alternatively, a 'format painter' type function for 'tags' .. Something.. anything.. PLEASE!>?.. for the sake of Evernote, which I otherwise love..
