  1. Thanks BurgersNFries; I think thinking "ALL or ANY" helps. I got round the limitation of Q* getting all the tags beginning with Q by going for Q-1, Q-2 etc. So now query is -tag:Q-*. And this is working (though have now switched away from Q (quarters) to months and days of the week).
  2. Hi Jeff - you're right; I must have mistyped earlier - my apologies and thanks for your patience.

  5. I have tags - Q1,Q2,Q3 and Q4. I would like to find any notes that do not have at least one of these tags. I have tried: any: -tag:Q1 -tag:Q2 -tag:Q3 - tag:Q4 but this doesn't work. I have tried same with -any: at the beginning. I have tried tag:-Q1 tag:-Q2 tag:-Q3 tag:-Q4 and with any: at the beginning. Grateful for any help. thanks
