Link to a tag within a note? in Evernote for Windows Issues (Versions 6.25.1 and under) Posted May 1, 2018 On 27.4.2018 at 12:51 AM, jefito said: OK, fair enough; it's just that every so often I run across some poster who writes with disdain about just storing recipes in Evernote, and I think, hey, storing recipes is actually a pretty good illustration of why tags are so important in Evernote. Think of the way that you'd describe a recipe: origin/style ("Chinese", "Italian", "New American", whatever), main ingredient ("Chicken", "Breadfruit",...), course ("Breakfast", "Dessert", ...), method ("Grill", "Fry", ...) and so on. There are myriad potential categories playing against other, and these are all well represented using tags, and I'd guess that would be pretty complex if that was your main enterprise, and so also a candidate for linking improvements. There's nothing wrong with using notebooks to organize in Evernote, but I figured out early on that tags just felt better for me, and so I've never even come close to the limit. The problem I have with notebooks is that a note can go into only one at a time, whereas notes can have multiple tags. So prefer tags, and don't use notebooks unless I need to. Regardless, whether you organize using notebooks or tags or both, you still need to search in some fashion or another (selecting a notebook or a tag from a list, or by typing); they're really pretty equivalent: categories are categories. Certainly agree that needing to copy/paste a query of some kind into search could be made easier. Let's put it this way: one of the reasons why EN is so popular is that different people can work with it differently and the way they feel is best for them. And that's awesome! For me it's folders with a little bit of tagging - like a few categories, etc. But tagging as basic organization just doesn't work for me because 1. meticulous tagging (mentally) disturbs my very busy work flow and 2. if I tag by broad categories I might remember the categories but won't find specific stuff and if I tag by specific tags, I cannot remember the tags when I need them (and have to spend time searching for them) - or worse: forget that tag/project exists! We are all not getting younger (*joke bait*) and I try to organize EN the way that it is easy and fast for me to find and dump stuff. I'm actually continouesly refining the way I work with EN - e.g. more heavily integrating linking, which I find highly effective in my work flows. And also more tagging. Combining linking and tagging would be ideal as this helps to make more complex relations and "break out of the notebook logic" - or as simple as finding stuff in an archive with one click from an overview note. But for me, the thing I do not understand is why I can bookmark a folder or a tag and with one click get the notes from that folder/tag but EN does not allow links to notebooks/tags - which is the same thing. If creating those links is technically problematic: fine! But these links are already existent but EN simply does not allow users to use them. I personally think that is a shame as this is a lost opportunity to help people work more efficiently and therefore to make the product better.
