  1. Absolutely! I use the tags to assign well defined terms for searches. In other words, my Notebooks are titled for specific types of data. In my detective days..I would assign one section in my Franklin Covey to each case. Within that section were sub dividers for crime scene evidence, hunches (No...Really!), for leads I needed to follow up on...etc. With EN, I don't really have dividers and sub dividers! I have available to me Notebooks and Tags. (Stacks if one uses those...I do not). So..I title a limited number of Notebooks for specific or very general subjects, and use Tags for specific searches, rather in lieu of tabbed sub dividers and or sections. The Tags assist me in finding important data, while the Notebooks give me a very general space to initially place my data. The Notebooks and Tags work together as a complete system, enabling one to fine tune their workspace, kind of like defining your workspace in Photoshop! Hope this helps! Unkei
  2. Before anyone beats me too badly..I'd like to say I understand and use tags! They can be indispensable, and make housekeeping chores much easier, especially with the idea of filing all your data in EN. It would take a heck of a lot of filing cabinets or at least very looooong, through the wall drawers, if most of us tried to put all our data in one filing drawer, (kind of like in that Morgan Freeman movie) and darn difficult to find anything! Hence..the use of tags to make finding stuff easier. I've got a file drawer in my rolltop..(sideways orientation unfortunately) and it has a plethora of useful and useless junk in it. And..because of its sideways orientation..I can hardly read the file labels. Not efficient! But EN and tags...a whole different matter. Easy to find anything..don't really need to think of where I stashed something! Still....I like my Notebooks! I've always used notebooks with tabs separating subjects. As a detective in a large Law Enforcement Agency..I used (and simply could not do without), a medium sized Franklin Covey zippered notebook. It had pockets for various cards and papers, as well as the options for lined, blank, or grid pages, adress pages, fold out calenders...etc. And lo and behold, you could even put in hard dividers and put tab labels on these! It was a thing of beauty, and though retired since 2010.....I use it loveingly yet today! As to Notebooks in EN, i use and like them for the same reasons. I can label them just like in the aforementioned Franklin Covey...and know at a glance what type of data resides there. And..I can still use tags to quickly find anything I need. Best of two worlds IMHO! I currently average between 25-30 EN Notebooks, and as long as I make judicious use of tags, I don't see myself hitting the dreaded 250 Notebook limit. But I do like the Notebook structure for reasons given. To those who cry foul due to the 250 Notebook limit, it would probably be a good idea to learn about and make use of tags! Unkei
  3. Hi all, Is there any way to disable long press? When I'm attempting to take notes, even a short delay on my part, brings up the copy/photo option which then makes writing impossible! Any suggestions? Does not seem to be any way to turn this off in the settings! Thanks, Unkei
