COPY AND PASTE TAGS FORM ONE NOTE TO SUBSEQUENT NOTES

Idea

I find very often that lots of new notes in a notebook will use the same tags as the first note in the notebook when I am paying statements and create the notes by sharing to Evernote from a pdf... It would be so fast and easy to be able to copy the tags from the first note and paste (or share) the tags to the subsequent notes as they are created and added to the folder.

Please add this feature!

How to copy tags from one note to another in Evernote (PC)

 
The option for duplicating a note and also copying along the tags is hidden inside the "Notebooks..." menu item. Since I didn't know about it at the time, I had to look for another way to copy the tags from one note to another. I found an easy method...
How to copy a note's tag to another note in Evernote (PC):
  1. Select both notes in the note list.
  2. Right-click and choose Tag Notes...
  3. Check Hide unassigned tags
  4. Press Select All
  5. Press OK
That's it! Now both notes will contain the same exact tags (i.e. a union between both sets of tags).

Not clear on the definition of "the first note".

Until this is implemented, you might want to look into using templates that include the tags.

I simply mean that it would be very useful to be able copy & paste tags from one note to other notes. Whether or not they are in a notebook for that matter. I often want the same tags for many notes, especially several notes within a notebook.

I searched the help & learning for templates but don't see anything relevant. Is that a feature for a Business user? I have a premium account.

Templates are just notes that you duplicate as needed. Tags go along when you duplicate (make a copy in the current notebook) or copy (make a copy in a different notebook) a note. A web search on "evernote note templates" will yield a number of hits. E.g., https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/210176028-How-to-Save-time-with-templates

Just looked to see if there was any implementation of "Copy and Paste" tags.

I would use this a lot when creating notes by way of sharing pdf files of paid statements. When I do this at bill paying time there are 4 or 5 tags that would be applicable to several notes. A template would not work as well as a copy and paste tags feature.
