    When you are done with the tag/notebook you could precede it with zz. or something (zz.ooldtag) and move it to a parent tag of zz.archived.tags for the desktop.  Or whatever names you like.  The tags would at least be at the bottom of the list when assigning a tag on any platform.

    That is a great suggestion, basically pushing them all the way to the bottom. It's a workaround to some extent but somewhat reasonable. I'll take a look at implement something like this - at least until they can be hidden. Thank you.

    My latest count of tags (last year) was over 1,400 tags.How do I remember them all? I group similar tags together using a Parent /Child structure. Many of my tags start with a 3 character prefix. I used to run Evernote on my Android phone, but for security reasons, I erased it and only use Evernote on my desktop.

    I use a naming convention trick to group my tags for easier memory and maintenance. I use a parent and child structure. Example:















    Here is a link to a forum post on the benefits of tags



    That's quite a list of Tags. Yeah, so there's the dilemma. On the desktop it's much easier to manage, on mobile, when assigning a note, you have to scroll through almost all of your tags all your tags to get down to "Per-House". Or in my case "Vacation"  sub Cruise 2016. It's this Tag picker that I wish I could pare down to only the ones I'm still using. For now, at least on Android I may just have to suck it up. The list of Tags will be ALL of them no matter how I organize them.

    Notebooks are not so easy when you start to reach the limit (250 notebooks vs 10,000 tags), especially if you are creating notebooks that you no longer need.

    Creating a tag named Cruise2016 is more powerful, flexible, and gives better search results. A tag can be hidden with a - sign, a notebook cannot be hidden,

    Interesting. Tags are the way I mostly Organize. I have a couple of Notebooks ie. Personal and Business, with multiple Tags that apply to each. My list of Tags is pretty long, especially when using the Tag picker (Android) to assign to a note. They're nested in the main part of the app but not nested when assigning a Tag - this is why I would wish to hide old or unused ones. How does - sign hide a Tag? How is that used?    


  4. It's definitely much cleaner to create a hierarchy and organize it like that. I guess I just realized I could've been more specific. On a mobile device when you're assigning a Tag to a new note the nested structure that exists on the desktop version no longer exists in the mobile version. You'll have to scroll through all your Tags, new and old to find what you need. Having the ability to hide unused ones (old ones) would be useful in this part of app software. 

  5. Premium user here, 

    I tend to create Tags or Notebooks based on Logical events. For instance if I were to create a "Cruise 2016"  notebook or tag and place all of those specific items in there, I will have a "one stop" place to find everything related to this. But once that cruise is over I would still want to keep all my info. Chances are I will not use a Cruise 2016 Notebook or Tag again so it would be great if those could be "Hidden" or "Archived" in such a way that they no longer appear in my active list. They would hidden until I wanted to see them.

    I realize there are potentially other ways to organize, for instance using key words or "Intitle" type searches to bring up what I need, but sometimes just having a folder (Notebook) to click on makes it easy. 

    Thanks for listening.


  6. Yes, this is definitely a need. Most of us here are juggling two accounts, for business (work)  and personal but using one mobile device to access each. Signing out and signing back in is not the most efficient way to handle this.

    Separate request: I have my own separate private (business) account which is combined with my regular personal account. The drawback to merging these into one account is that all my Tags and Notebooks show up in my Notebook and Tag lists. If I add a note for a personal item such as a vet bill receipt, I have to scroll through a list of tags such as "vendors" , "equipment repair" , "floor plans" that apply to my private business before I get to the personal tag I need. I wish to be able to separate these types within the one account.  

  7. When I use my phone to take a picture of, let's say a whiteboard, and view it on Evernote for Android it shows me the the whole picture in it's entirety. I can then pinch to zoom in or out as I wish. However, when I try to view this same picture on Evernote for the web it's mostly "zoomed" in already. I actually have to use the scrolls bars to pan left to right or top to bottom. I need to be able to see the whole picture in the frame at once. Is there any way to fix this?

    Thank you
