  1. Annoyingly, Google Drive actually works like this but they don't provide the UI to make use of it. A note/file, or even a folder, can be nested inside multiple folders. An invoice could be inside the "Tax Return 2019" folder and also the "Invoices" folder. It's the same item; if you edit it in one place it's edited in both. If files are treated as notes and folders as tags, you get the best of both worlds. A folder structure for specific organisation, and multiple locations for accessing files in different contexts and allow slicing of sets. The problem is that they don't provide a s
  2. Thanks for your replies. Sorry for not getting back sooner but I've not been at a computer for a while and really wanted to sit and read instead of use my phone. I see about features vs "is a" but things like music have numerous categories that are fusions of more than one patent. Progmetal is both prog rock and metal for example, but prog rock and metal would be cousins or siblings, so wouldn't be in the same parent child line within a hierarchy. I'm sure I could think of others but it's essentially similar to the diamond inheritance problem in software. Reverting to tags of features
  3. This is exactly what I need. Unfortunately I'm not on mac but something like this may help a lot.
  4. Thanks for your reply. This was more an example of how a tag can have multiple parents and what I can do about it. I actually store my photos elsewhere. If I tagged something as tiger, I'd also want it tagged as animal and also as cat because a tiger is always a cat and always an animal. That seems like a lot of work and I'd definitely forget to do it when creating a new note. Tagging it as "animal.cat.tiger" would fix that, except that tiger can have more than one parent. Using simple tags would work except I would lose seeing some tigers when looking at animals, if I forget to tag
  5. I'm just looking for some advice on how I can organise some tags. Say I have some photos, I could have a tag "image" and also a tag "image.jpeg", because all jpegs are images so I will have no problem with subtagging. If I then have some photos of animals, I can have the tag "animal" and then I may also have a tag "animal.cats" and then another "animal.cats.tigers". All tigers are cats, all cats are animals, so it would work if I typed "tag:animal.*". However, how do I handle that tigers can also be inside "animal.endangered" and "animal.carnivore" and "animal.dangerous"? I could create "
