[Managing] Batch Replace Note Title

Postby greenfox57 » Tue Oct 17, 2017 8:05 am

I would like to be able to replace the note title for multiple notes at once, like by selecting a group of notes, right-clicking, and having a menu option to "batch rename" or "batch replace title" or even "batch edit title". If something like this is implemented it might also be nice to be able to specify that you want the new text appended to the front or back of the current title rather than replacing the current title altogether.

I tend to clip multiple notes from a single article or website and then I want all the notes that I clipped from a single source to have the same title. Right now I do that manually by clicking on each note, deleting the title, and pasting in a new title.

I apologize if this suggestion is a duplicate of another suggestion. I can't seem to find a way to search this forum. It looks like this feature suggestion might be similar, but I'm not completely sure: http://roadmap.cintanotes.com/topics/55 ... s-in-view/

Thanks!

Update: I just found the search box for the forum. I don't know why I didn't see it before.

Hello greenfox57, welcome to the forum!

Indeed that is the correct roadmap suggestion that you've found. As you can see, it's not implemented yet.
But there's a workaround - export the notes to XML, delete the ntoes, batch replace text in this XML using any text processing program such as Notepad, and then re-import the XML back into CN.
