windows (Archived) favourites bar: tags keyboard shortcut?

Recommended Posts

im really liking this new favourites bar, i never used tags that much because it was too much effort scrolling down to the tags section every time i selected a different notebook

so anyway im just wondering if there is a shortcut key to select/put focus on the "Tags" button in the favourites bar, so you could just start typing straight away... similar to the "F6″ shortcut key you press to start searching in all notebooks. it would be handy being able to do it without having to move the mouse up there every time you need to filter something, im more of a keyboard guy you see ;)

None that I know of, but, the KB shortcut documentation could be lagging for this new feature.

I was thinking it would be nice if I could drag a selected tag from the dropdown list in the favorites bar to the current note, so that I could add that tag to the note. I use a "Lemons-Fruit-Food" approach to tagging: the tag search is wonderful in that I can type in "Fruit" and see all the different fruits that I have notes on. Now, if I could tag my current note with Lemons-Fruit-Food, I could see all other notes at the same time and make sure that my tagging is consistent.

The Favorites bar is a pretty new feature, and it's ripe for enhancements. That might be a good one.

Shift+Alt+T will open Tags popup... Shift+Alt+N will open Notebooks popup. Note that these shortcuts work even if Favorites Bar is not shown.

In addition, using F3 will move you to the tag entry area in the Note Info panel on the current note, ready to start typing.

Peter, that's great news.

What are the equivalent shortcuts for EN Mac?

Whoa.

Shift+Alt+A brings up the Saved Searches list on the Favorites bar.

Shift+Alt+S brings up the Attributes search.

I don't think EN Mac has equivalent shortcuts at this moment.

Yeah, this is also fixed: if the appropriate button is not on the fav bar, or fav bar is hidden, pop ups come up at the left of Evernote window.

Thank you for reporting!

Fixed in new (5953) beta. Thanks.

Would be helpful if these could also be added to Favorites Bar.

For the record, Thank you for making sure keyboard shortcuts and specifically SHIFT+ALT+T was included right of the bat with this new feature. Keyboard shortcuts are invaluable to me and to see this included right off the bat is wonderful! Thank you!

Peter, could you please pass on a request to the EN Mac team to add these shortcuts?

Thanks.

The problem with ALT+SHIFT+A and ALT+SHIFT+A is that they take you also to All Notebooks. What if you just want to filter by that tag or attribute (say, created in the last week) in the notebook or stack you are in? It would be nice to have that as settable in Options -- All Notebooks or Current Stack/Notebook.

Try setting HKCU/Software/Evernote/Evernote/MacLikeFavoritesBar registry value to 0. Also have a look at various ShowFavoritesBar* registry values if you want to tweak Favorites Bar behavior. Please fully exit Evernote using File/Exit before changing its application registry values, otherwise your changes will not have effect.

Just wanted to let you know that at rev 232513 we've added alternate short cut keys to those convenient Favorites Bar popups: Shift+F1 will bring up Notebooks popup, Shift+F2 will bring Tags popup etc. This is in addition to existing mnemonically defined but rather finger stretching Shift+Alt+N and Shift+Alt+T

Peter, this sounds great!

Please pass this on to the EN Mac team so that we can have equivalent shortcuts in EN Mac as well.

Alt+Shift+A and Alt+Shift+S no longer work. Is it only me?

 

Moreover the tag search is not the way it used to be before.

I have a lot of two word tags (eg. "video lecture", "video demo"). I used to be able to search the second word of the tag if there was a space in between it.

eg. On typing demo or lecture I would get the respective tag in drop down list

I'm no longer able to search it now. Has there been a change or am I doing something wrong?

As far as I know, you always needed to quote-enclose tag names with a space in them, e.g. tag:"video demo"
