Need help: how to import and make tags from text?

Postby danielson » Tue Feb 23, 2016 2:05 pm

Say i want to import the list Bible names in abbreviated form and use these as tags or any other list of similar abbreviations, (other than typing one by one) is there a relatively easy way to do this?

Here's an easy way to do this.
All you need is to

1) Get your list of Bible names into one string, separated with spaces, or commas, or semicolons.
2) Deactivate Options/Tags/Autodeleted by default
3) Make a new note, write anything in the title or text (empty notes are not saved) and paste the list from step 1 into the Tags field
4) Press OK, the tags will be created
5) Delete the note from step 3

Wow! I like that! 8-)
Going to give it a shot for sure!
Have at least one more similar project in mind (maybe two or three), so if this goes well, as they say, "i'm in the money"!

Thank you Alex! :)

Would like to push this a bit further... (perhaps it's already in "feature request" dept.).

When typing a note, can CN be configured to automatically hyperlink a text that corresponds to a specific tag?

Thanks again Alex!
It is good to know that it is in the "planned" stage of the game for sure!
If this happens, CN would become (imho) a viable substitute to Tomboy and Tiddlywiki. ;)
Just hope the internet years don't take the toll.
Already 4 or 5 years now as a feature request?

Yes, time flies, doesn't it? :) Having only 1.5 developers on the team takes its toll on the delivery dates. But the good news is, most of the feature requests with higher numbers of votes have been done, and now this request entered the top 10 :)

That is my "good news" to hear for the day! 8-)
Didn't want to be pushy.
Just couldn't help but notice the time/date.



Hope you are getting all that snow they're now getting in Moscow.
