She just writes down in a physical piece of paper:


GOTO 47 in BOOK TRAILER $100 <--current client number is 47, previous client was Note 46 in BOOK TRAILER $100 Section

GOTO 2 in KIDS-RELATED (daughter Jesse)


MY BOOKS, KIDS-RELATED, HOBBIES etc. are section names! not note names...

would prefer multicolor tags displayed atleast in the tag sidebar, i.e., not necessarily colored tags visible as part of the note itself…

Hi Alex, good idea Thanks…

OK No probs, probably document assembly doesnt fit in with the scope of a note-taking app :(

Thanks Thomas, I did check cintanotes' twitter stream for a link to download beta 2 of version 1.6
My idea of tag grouping UI is like the one Wordpress 3.3.1 admin panel uses - if you mouse over "All Posts" it opens options toward the right, the options, "Add New Post" etc. So in the tag sidebar, there is only the option "All Posts".

So if I have these tags
only "programming" will appear in the left tag sidebar - if you click on it it will pop out (toward the right) c++ and ruby
Alex, I see both of our ideas are related ... (forward/backward navigation and numbering notes)

One way I imagine addressing it is like this:
Imagine there is a column that will appear on the left side of each note and it can be turned on and off (visible or not) using a hotkey. This column will display the ordinal number of the note.

If you right click on any ordinal number, and choose an option... "Goto..." then you could enter the ordinal number of any other note and it will navigate up/down to that note. This is like turning the pages of a book, if you know the page number which you want to view, you can skip ahead or leaf back to a particular page number quickly (random access).

If you right click on any ordinal number, and choose an option... "Display filter..." there will be "From: ___ and To: ___" where you can enter the ordinal number range of the notes you want displayed currently in the viewport.
Like From: 1001 to 1025. When you turn off the ordinal number column using the hotkey, the notes viewport will return to normal... display all notes.
Instead of From: ___ and To: ___ (two textboxes)
we could just have a single textbox that works like how Word's Print dialog box lets you type in 101-125 in the same textbox (using a typed-in hyphen)

When such 'filtered' viewport of notes is displayed, there could be (optionally) a ◄ and ► in the left and right of a bottom navigation bar, so the next or previous set of notes can be displayed, this could be 20 notes at a time or 100 notes at a time depending on the range that was entered in the textbox. (if user entered 101-120 then notes can be navigated forward and backward 20 by 20, if user had entered 500-1000, notes can be navigated forward and backward 500 by 500)...

I upvoted this - I see this as part of 'tag grouping'

Ok here are my thoughts: as to why there could be 'permanent tags' that are unattached to any notes?

Imagine tag structure like:
School <this tag would be unattached to any note>
Physics <this tag would be associated with notes>

Shopping list

Team scores

School, home and soccer would be 'unattached' tags, just to create
subheadings for other tags (physics, chemistry, etc.) that come below.

I also notice somebody had suggested a tag structure/hierarchy like this:



I am not sure which will be more user-friendly and usable.
