windows Feature Request: Create New Note with Tag

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have the ability to create a new note with a selected tag by right-clicking on a tag in the left panel and selecting a New Note option.

Interesting idea. I wonder if I can suggest a different option as well. I'd like the option in preferences to designate a default tag(s) and folder when creating a new note. I tend to make a bunch of notes for one project and then move onto the next one, and my notes usually have more than one tag.

@DaveS: Yeah, I could see where that might be useful; maybe even if you have tags multi-selected.

@GrumpyMonkey: For Windows, default behavior is that making a new note via the New Note command (File / New Note, Ctrl+N or global Ctrl+Alt+N) makes the new note in the currently active notebook (but only if you're allowed to make notes there, I expect). No default tags, however, tags can be mass applied using the Assign Tags comand (File / Tag..., Ctrl+Alt+T). Copy Note might also be of interest: you can make a template note, with tags and content, and copy it to the notebook that you want., Also the ENScript createNote sub-command can be used to make empty notes in a specific notebook, with explicit tag(s).

Yes, that would be a useful feature for me as well (in addition to right-clicking on a tag).

DaveS,

If you set HKCU/Software/Evernote/Evernote/SetNewNoteTags registry value to 1, the newly created notes will be assigned currently selected set of tags when saved. Please fully exit Evernote with File/Exit before changing its application registry.

BTW, you can select tags by Shift+clicking on tag buttons in Note Info panel: this makes it easy to filter notes with the same tags as the one you're viewing. With SetNewNoteTags option set to 1 you can also create new notes with the same set of tags.

You may want to try Copy Note feature: prepare a template note with tags and other properties specific to the project and copy it to create new notes for this project.

Evernoted. Gradually scraping documentation on Evernote registry keys. :P

The shift-clicking on the tags in the note info panel tip is a good one.

Nice! This is exactly what I was looking for.

Thanks so much for the tip,

This part is a little tricky. Shift-clicking on tags in the Note Info pane does select multiple tags but they don't appear to be selected in the Note Info pane. However, I noticed that if I look at the tags in the Left Panel they are selected there. And I can then create a new note with those tags selected.

They're also reflected in the search info panel, if you have it visible (I almost always do).

Just tried it in that version. It works, but only after the note has auto-saved (or synced).

Tried again, this time worked well, since I misread the sequence to exit EN.

Thanks for quick response.

Hi everyone, apologies, but how can I make this happen on a Mac. I could not find any registry files.

@ /Peter: I checked plist's in Library and in the Evernote container folder but found no relevant references. Any help is highly appreciated.

@ all: this feature would be really great! I often work on a couple of projects and would love to duplicate tags to keep my notes properly referenced

Correct -- there is no registry on the Mac; this thread is topical to Windows only. If you have questions for the Mac version of Evernote, you'd probably get better answers is you asked separately, in a post tagged as [Mac]. You should aso try a web search; you may turn up answers previously given.

It's crazy that this feature can be enabled only via the registry. Why is it that hidden?
