You’re now able to add Tags to catergorize and organize your notes.
Create Tags by using the # (hash) symbol, also known as the number or pound sign, and a keyword to search.
As shown, add one or more tags by typing them directly in the note, like #KungFu or choose from a list of created ones.
Moving on…Tag Browser
In the sidebar, you can choose any tag or combination of tags, to quickly view tagged notes.
Simply click on a tag or multiple of tags, to view your tagged notes.
Next, let’s take a look at…Custom Smart Folders
Notes are automatically collected in Custom Smart Folders, based on tags.
Custom Smart Folders can be created in 1 of 2 ways.
I’ll first create a Custom Smart Folder.
From the Notes menubar, under File, choose New Smart Folder or by clicking on the plus icon here and click Smart Folder.
I’ll name the Smart Folder, “Bruce” and click once on the Tags box, to reveal the Tags to use for this particular smart folder.
As you can see, the Smart Folder is automatically populated with notes, according to the chosen tag or tags filled in the Smart Folder Tags box.
It should be noted, Custom Smart Folders only contains notes, based on tags or combination of tags assigned to notes.
For example, editing the “Bruce” smart folder, and adding the following tag #Travel to the #BruceLee tag, will result of nothing listed in the smart folder.
Because, no notes contains the combination of the two tags shown.
However, if instead, I removed the #Travel tag and add the #Legend tag, as shown, the notes that contains the combination of those tags are listed in the Bruce smart folder.
To Delete a Custom Smart Folder.
Simply right-click or click on the 3-dots icon and select delete, or select folder and press backspace also known as the delete button, on your keyboard.
Social-Up your shared notes or folders with Mentions.
Type the @ (at sign) and the name of a collaborator anywhere on your shared note, to inform them with important updates and link them back directly to the shared note. .
