mac (Archived) Using key combo to 'exclude' a tag during a search

Recommended Posts

Obviously, one can do a quick (inclusive) search, by command-clicking the notebook/s and tag/s to be included in the left hand column.

Is there a modifier key that can be used to 'exclude' a particular tag as well.

e.g. select Notebook A, and tags D and E, but exclude tag Q in the search, where tag Q is an 'Archived' tag.

If not, can it be implemented please?

I assume it is the same in the Mac.

In Windows, just use a negative tag in the search field.

Had already thought of that - just that some of the tags can get a little long, and was hoping to see if there was a simple 'modifier'-click option instead.

Just to confirm, it is a Mac version I am referring to, though no doubt a Win option for this would be useful too.

I used to use very descriptive and long tag names.

Nowadays I try to streamline all my tags and make them as short as possible but still retain some sort of sense. I usually add a dash between words to eliminate the need for quotes. Using this sort of format, I can easily see all the companies I deal with just by typing com-* into the search field.
