  1. finally we have sub-folders option¡¡¡ EH-EH-EH¡¡¡
  2. yes... that's the point... I think that what everybody ask is just to visualize the hierachy...
  3. EXACTLY¡¡¡ for example in Mendely there's no mutually exclusive hierarchical structure... and we can work with a lovely treeview... if you analyze the format of the treeview in Mendeley, you can realize that you can attach the same 1 (one) article to all the folders and subfolders that you wish... there's one central folder and then you attach your article with trhe sub-folders... please see the pic mendeley.JPG (http://discussion.evernote.com/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=6592)
  4. yes... subfolders are horrible if you want to organize objects (fruits, vegetables, cars, etc), as you showed in your example... but are essential if you want to organize and make logical relations between more general or abstract ideas...
  5. Ironically, your example is an example in favor of tags. An index is like using tags. You want to find the section of a book on vi editor commands (cooking recipes are a very small portion of my 62,000+ notes), you don't want to go to the table of contents & work your way down by looking for the chapter that might contain the info you're looking for. Instead, you go to the index... Again, maybe if you simply took a breath, stepped back & reviewed some of the many existing threads on the topic, you'll see tags are much more flexible. The more notes you have the more effective tags are, rather than sub notebooks/folders. the difference between an index, the sub-folders and the tags is that the logical relation between the components of an index or sub-folders does exist in reality... you can SEE the tree... the index of a book is a page that is composed of atoms, and the information is there. I don't have to memorize anything... the sub-foldrs is the same... the information is there, in the form of bits... I don't have to memorize anything and anyone can interpret it... it doesn't matter if you don't use the index or sub-folder... I will not loose the idea if I forget something.. the logical relation between the tags is static and only exist in your mind... or perhaps what we are asking is a middle point: a treeview or visual map of the tasks... also this format is a good possibility.. http://a.freshbrain.com/solvr/
  6. if you want to WORK and UNDERSTAND you have to organize... so you HAVE TO use a hierarchical approach... read any book of wathever topic you want and discover by yourself that it has an index.. an order... a hierarchical approach... if you just want to play or make cooking recipes there's no prob with the tags...
  7. learn from Mendeley... Please allow us to sort notes in folders and subfolders (treeview like) the same note could be associated to multiple folders and subfolders.. tags are horrible.. see attached image as example.. mendeley.JPG (http://discussion.evernote.com/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=6592) thanks¡¡¡
