  1. I have been an evernote user for years like 8 to 10 years, but never been a daily user. I primarily use evernote for archiving purposes since it has tagging and very nice search and OCR. However, I would prefer to own my data and be able to house my data on my private cloud which is a Nextcloud instance, and I would presume other people may use other cloud services like Google Drive etc. I feel it would be pretty cool to have the choice to use my Nextcloud instance as a backend to house my notes and notebooks while the front end could be Evernote. Now i know that there is a way to have local notebooks however, this misses the mobile and portability features you get with using normal notebooks. Also the local notebooks are not accessible outside of evernote. I think it would be awesome if I could use the indexing / searching / indexing etc from Evernote, but be happy that my privacy is intact since all my notes are being stored in my private cloud and I can still go there to find them. This something that Notability features with syncing to WebDav for backup purposes which is awesome since I am the owner of my notes, yet I am able to search everything automatically through nextcloud or Notability. https://support.gingerlabs.com/hc/en-us/articles/205310268-Supported-Cloud-Services
  2. So i get that this exact feature the way it is designed is a hack as using a wildcard after a tag is not really a good way to do this. If you see my use case on the other thread then I think, perhaps, you may see the distinction. I use top level tags as merely dividers at times and never have notes attached to them because then you would have to constantly remember to add the top level tag then the child tags. Also naming tags "protein - chicken", "protein - turkey" is not sustainable. Again i could be just an outlier here on the way i use tags as I use them more for contexts and sometimes need to create blank tags to hierarchically organize my tags and it would be nice to search the notes altogether or individually quickly.
  3. Can this not be a feature for all platforms? This is something that I just posted on reddit here:
  4. Perhaps some context can help with my question. Let's say I am a cocktail enthusiast and I like to save cocktail recipes into an evernote Cocktail Recipe Evernote Notebook. For better lookup purposes I can make a cocktail tag to organize in a hierarchy every tag that I want to use exclusively for this notebook. Let's say I save a few recipes in there and I want to then tag each recipe with the liquor associated with each recipe for a quick reference so I would create another hierarchy tag that is called liquor but I won't necessarily want to tag my recipes with that tag but only with the sub tags like whiskey, vodka, tequila etc. Then I come to some recipes that are using Rye whiskey vs bourbon in this case I may want to create an additional level that has whiskey at the top but then has the different types like rye and bourbon etc at the bottom. With this example in mind, i am curious if I want to go and search through my recipes that have whiskey in them but no necessarily want to remember all the types of whiskey tags I have can we just search using the high level whiskey tag even tho there is no note that is tagged with whiskey but have the search results include all the notes that have the sub tags under whiskey. I think this should be a feature that you can toggle so that you can include sub tags in search result or not. Currently this doesn't happen. Right now I have a top level tag called "type of food" that i don't tag my notes with rather I have sub tags that are called American, or French, or Mexican etc. I have this for organizational purposes however I can't search for the tag "type of food" as it has not notes associated with it. However, I feel that it should pull the notes associated with the lower level tags so searching for "type of food" should pull in notes associated with Mexican, American, and French but I think this feature should be a toggle where you can choose to include notes with associated sub tags or not https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf9DWaBPY_0#action=share
