  1. I make lots of lists in lots of notes. Sometimes, I add text within a note that is an action I need to take personally. E.g., I will write the following in a note: TODO: Buy whole milk on Thursday And then I will color it red. Sometimes this text includes a date: TODO: Buy whole milk on April 28, 2020 at 8pm I have not found a way to do this in Evernote so far, so I'm asking here. I would really like to be able to create a note that contains a rule used to extract certain text like these red TODOs from other notes (say, only notes within a specific notebook) and simply lists the text in the note with the rule. Today, I do this extraction manually via copy/paste but it would be really helpful if it would do it automatically. This could be done using very simple formats to watch for in various notes. I would like to be able to set up this rule that watches various notes and as I add TODOs to these various notes, the note with the rule automatically extracts the TODOs on-the-fly. Taking this to the next level of complexity, it would be really nice if I could create a rule that handles this extraction automatically but using a regular expression. This offers much more flexibility for my note taking and extraction. This might be considered reusable content. Does anyone know if Evernote or an add-on can handle such a task? I know that OneNote can do something similar, but I really dislike Microsoft products.
