  1. When editing tags for selected notes wait until I click away to re-filter the search results. (Mac)
  2. I am looking for a special character which is sorted after the normal letters. Every special character is ordered before any number or letter. I need a special character to put in front of tags so that when searched they are put in the end of the list of possible hints. Gianluca
  3. Hi all I've had a quick search of the forum but wasn't able to find what I needed. I am an Evernote Plus member. I have created a Notebook that contains various notes, all catalogued by a series of tags. I've just shared the Notebook with my supervisor but she's not able to sort the individual notes by the tags, which was the whole point of doing it this way. Is there a workaround for this or have I wasted a colossal amount of time? At the moment I've given her my login details so that she can see all of the tags but this is obviously not an ideal situation. Thanks Sione
  4. I recently had the pleasure of using the iOS note app called Bear and I have to say, I'm a huge fan of how it handles tags -- in particular, nested tags. I wonder if something similar could be adopted by Evernote? The key difference between Bear-style tag nesting and Evernote-style tag nesting is that, in Bear, the combination of a parent tag plus a child tag yields a unique tag. That means you can actually have multiple tags of the same name, as long as they are each children of different tags. This makes it easy to set up a real parent/child relationship between groups of notes using tags alone. In contrast, in Evernote, tag nesting is for organizational purposes only. That means that tags must be unique, even when they are nested underneath other tags. So, let's imagine that you own two cars, and want to organize information about insurance and service records. Bear You can set up something like this in Bear: car1/insurance car1/servicerecords car2/insurance car2/servicerecords You could then filter by car1, or car2, etc., or drill down. You could also potentially search by insurance, servicerecords, etc., and cross cut across car1, car2, etc. Evernote In Evernote, you would need to do a workaround, as you can't create two tags with the same name. One workaround: car1-insurance car1-servicerecords car2-insurance car2-servicerecords etc., but you lose the information that the sub-string "insurance" is really supposed to "mean" the same thing for both car1 and car2. Or you could use completely independent tags car1, car2, insurance, servicerecords, etc., and then organize the tags into a hierarchy with all of the tags underneath a general cars tag. But then what if you also have, say, health insurance, and use the insurance tag for that? Or home owners insurance? It wouldn't make sense to put the insurance tag under cars, right? You might say that you could keep insurance as the high level tag and nest other tags like cars, home, health, underneath, but that causes its own problems. You might say, then, you could have organizational-only tags like ^INSURANCE or ^CARS, but then you end up organization-only tags and the ensuing messiness (with especially huge amounts of messiness on iOS, where there is no tag hierarchy at all). Or you might have two notebooks, Car1, and Car2, and use the insurance, servicerecords, etc., tags. This is pretty much what I do now, but the 250 notebook cap is always looming in the back of my mind. Plus , there's no clear place to put the insurance tag under, i.e. the tag nesting problem is still there because tags must be unique, even when they are nested. And for people who want to don't want this new fangled tag hierarchy, an option could be put into settings to enable / disable. Thoughts?
  5. Hi, I'm using Evernote with very few notebooks, as I prefer to organise and to search with tags. As I'm using Evernote also for task management, I've created tags for recurring tasks: 'REC - 1 Day', 'REC - 2 Months', 'REC - 6 Weeks', etc. Until recurring reminders is implemented one day (if at all), this is working very well for me. Now my question: How can I search for all notes with a tag for recurring event? (So, how to search for notes with tags starting with 'REC'?) For a second, I thought I've found the solution myself by creating a tag group called 'RECURRING', with all my 'REC-tags' nested in it. Except tag groups are not really groups, but in fact just...a tag, referring to 0 notes. I was hoping it would show me the total of all notes nested within it. I hope I'm making sense here as english is not my native language : ) Any help or suggestions would be appreciated! Vincent
  6. I'm very curious what sorting rule determines the order of the tag color labels in the note list. It's not the same as the order of the tag list of the note, which I would expect. It's also not based solely on color (e.g first red, then yellow, etc.). I use prefixes for certain types of tags (e.g. !tag1, !tag2, @tag100, @tag101) and I find it confusing that sometimes the color label associated with a @-tag comes first, and sometimes the label of a !-tag. Even notes with exactly the same tags, the color labels are sometimes sorted different. In this example, the tag !active always comes first in the tag list, but not in the color labels: So it seems sorting is not consistent, but maybe I am missing something here. Anyone has an idea?
  7. note + tags for books

    hi everyone, i need some advise, i would like to take memos fore several books i'm reading and i want to make myself some note per page, and every note to give tags what would be the most elegant way to do it i think opening a new memo for every note is not so useful...
  8. Counters using numbers can be added for all menus in Main Menu, also counters in title bars. The Reminders in blue text above all notes is still handy, but upon entering the app, there are times where I just want to see my reminders as its own menu settings with other options for reminders as its own entity. Please see screetshots for examples:
  9. Premium user on a Mac here, have been using EN for years now. When I am searching for something in my notes, I usually get many choices, most of which do not seem to find what I want. I use tags, so why am I getting so many results that do not even fit my search? It's really inefficient and makes it difficult to find what I want.
  10. Incomplete Sync - iPhone 6S

    IS THERE A SETTING TO NOT SEARCH THE TRASH ON THE PHONE? (I've looked, not seeing it.) I've discovered FacileThings and combined with Evernote it seems to be a easier way to acclimate to GTD. In the process I've deleted and almost tagged my 4000+ notes. They sync fine with web.evernote but not the phone. On the phone I have items I trashed on the app that are still show up on the phone with a -tag:* search. I know because when I search notes with -tag:* I get 193 results on app and web, but 594 on the phone. I've cleared the phone Evernote cache (account>settings>clear cache). What else should I try?
  11. Hi All Quick one - for some reason can't find the shortcut to quickly toggle to the add tag box. I.e. to quickly add a tag when you're typing in a note without having to use the mouse to move the cursor up to the tags box. What is it? (see attached screenshot for example...!) Can't seem to find it here Best Charlie
  12. Each time I open the stand-alone Evernote application, the first thing I do is to right-click on the tag view and select "Show all tags". This is annoying. I suggest to add a preference option that allows users to set this behaviour, e.g. ( ) Always expand tags
  13. For example, let's say I have "Tag A". "Tag A" has the child tag "Tag B". "Tag B", in turn, has the child tag "Tag C". It seems logical to me that tagging any note with "Tag B" should automatically apply "Tag A", as well. Similarly, tagging any note with "Tag C" should automatically apply both "Tag A" and "Tag B", as well. However, unless I'm mistaken, this doesn't seem to be the way Evernote works. I'm finding that, say, tagging a note with "Tag C" only tags it with "Tag C". This leaves me wondering what the point of tag hierarchies within Evernote is, besides superficial organization?
  14. Hi all, sorry to ask what seems so basic but I have poorly assigned tags but when I right click the tag I get the menu below and no option to delete as I think I should. Already pretty frustrated and only just started! Any help appreciated. Thanks!
  15. Use of commas in tags

    I'd like to be able to use commas in tags. This is useful for creating a tag with someone's name. I'd like to be able to do "Last, First". But the prohibition on the use of the comma prevents this.
  16. Hi, This would be a great feature: When you right click on a tag, you would see the option to see the notes with that tag. Now it's just remove, delete and rename (windows)
  17. I tend to sort all of my information using lots of tags and a minimal amount of notebooks. Because of this I often find myself navigating away from my notes (or creating a separate note window) and then changing my main window to the tags page. I would love if I could open the tags page in separate window to reference.
  18. Note highlighted

    Hi, I'm sorry for my English, I translated from French to English via Google Translate... So my request is to have the opportunity to highlight a note so that we can better get used to it when working on a big project by immediately recognizing the notes that require our attention and those that seem to be not important in the 'immediate. Here is the illustration of my idea : Please, take into account, Thanks to all the Evernote team for creating such an application, I use it daily and I am very satisfied! ToniCSR
  19. Search within tags

    I am switching from PC to Mac and am having trouble with searing in Evernote on Mac. Specifically, I heavily use the ability to search for note text within multiple tags. On Evernote for PC, this is simple -- I just use the search field above the notes list:) For some reason I am not finding this option in Evernote for Mac: Is there a setting I need to turn on? Or is this functionality accomplished in a different way on Evernote for Mac? I realize that this could possibly be done using an advanced search string, but the problem with this is that it doesn’t autocomplete the tags as you add them. Any thoughts?
  20. As of now, Evernote on the Mac will only show me my tags that begin with the word "cat" when I type that in. It won’t show me the tags I've already created for "black cat" or "siamese cat", for example. (When adding tags to a note, not when searching.) I am sure people will suggest that I make all tags follow this type of format: cat black, cat siamese, etc. I have run into problems with longer words and phrases, especially when tagging a note on my phone. Longer tags don't appear in their entirety, so sometimes you can't tell what specific tag you are adding, only that it's one of your "cat" tags, so to speak. I think there must be some name for this kind of suggested-search behavior in computerese, but I have no idea what that is.
  21. Why are my searches not working?

    I have been using EN for several years, and think it's great. But sometimes it ticks me off. Just now, on my iPad, I clipped a New York Times recipe into Quick Notes, with "recipe" as a tag. A few minutes later, I open EN, and can't find the damn thing! It doesn't show in Quick Notes and it doesn't come up when I type "recipe" in the search field. In the past, I have also had problems finding notes that I knew contained at least some word I was using to search with. Isn't EN now supposed to be able to search everywhere inside a note for the word that is searched by the user?
  22. Another feature request in this forum suggests that Notebooks should become hierarchical. I disagree with this because tags can already be hierarchical. The problem as I see it is that Evernote doesn't encourage or allow for an easy way to view tags and their hierarchy. An example of where a tagging system works very well to me is Gmail. Gmail allows an email to exist within different tags just like Evernote. However it also offers a sidebar where you can view a tree-structure of tags (parent and child tags). Since Evernote effectively encourages the use of tags as descriptors, most of us probably have too many tags that are disorganized. This is one of the biggest weaknesses of tagging and using tags poorly. I do the same. So from that perspective, my idea may not sound appealing. However if there could be a way to have a tree view of tags in the sidebar, I believe it would encourage more careful use of tagging and allow notebooks to remain untouched.
  23. Tags Deleted by Evernote

    What the hell, I just signed into evernote and 90% of my tags are gone from the beginning of the year, I just noticed this because I've been out of town but did Evernote do a system update or something that erased information from their servers? I'm always running into problems with your service!
  24. Export Tags

    Hi Everyone, I use Evernote, Pocket and a few other services. Tags are the center of my organization and I would like to keep them consistent across programs. It would be great if I could export my tags on Evernote and then be able to import them in other services, even if this involved arrange the way that tags were exported from evernote, I understand it would be difficult to export them in a way that would fit all other services structure. Is there a way already to do this? Thank you
  25. Hi, I selected a bunch of notes and wanted to add a tag. In adding the mix of autocorrection and my typing led me to delete the tag of this specific note selection. I quickly went off line but saw that the notes were untagged. Is there any way of finding these notes again? I have over 10.000 notes and the chances are not too high that I will find all the notes that had that specific tag very easily. By the way, typing in the tags-field when multiple tags are selected is a mess :-( Thanks in advance, Arjan
