  1. When I first started using Evernote, I thought I had to have a sticky note interface for Evernote. Having used it for a while, I no longer desire a sticky note interface, but there is something else I would like: A Windows gadget that would display the results of a saved search. The titles would display, scrollable in the gadget, with the ability to click them and bring up the note and the ability to click to add a new note which meets the saved search criteria, so it would then appear in the list. I've found that the Evernote note interface works fine as a replacement for a sticky note. What'
  2. I'm talking about assigning or searching on a tag - which I plan to keep to a small number, even if I have 500,000 notes.
  3. Ultimately, it's really what works for you and avoiding a few pitfalls like huge numbers of notebooks or tags. I like typing in "w" and seeing walnut, weird, whoopee - because it's too easy to make a typo and misspell "woopee" and then not being able to find that note.
  4. Sounds like your requirements for organization are greater than mine and your perseverance in keeping it beats me as well.
  5. Actually, if you put keywords in the titles, you are tagging the notes so you can search on them. Instead of adding keywords to the notes or note titles, I tag them. My brain must work differently from yours because it is easier for me to put stuff in a notebook from a drop-down list and then have hints about the tags or be able to look at the list in the left panel. In the past, trying to remember and maintain "a solid naming system" is exactly what has always done me in.
  6. Well, how do you use the "notes" tag? If it is for notes you take in class, a "notes" tag could be very useful and it's just a shorter way of saying "classnotes" Same for "personal" If you can have personal receipts and business receipts... I'm glad to see you have pruned the number of notebooks. You have a similar number to me. What you had before would have driven me nuts... And They're coming to take me away Ha Ha They're coming to take me away ho ho he he ha ha to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time, and I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
  7. If we had to limit ourselves to 10 adjectives to label the world, it would be a poorer place. Don't feat a larger number of tags; just learn to create them judiciously. Exactly It's not how many tags you have, it's having tags that are easy to remember, easy to use, and to not create multiple tags for the same thing (a "dinner" tag and a "supper" tag) I use a tag for each of my clients. That's easy because I know their name and so typing in the tag without getting duplicates is easy. Often, my client's name doesn't appear in the note, so I tag it. I also tag my Code notebook notes with tags l
