Convert title to tag

Postby jimd » Fri Jun 21, 2019 4:02 pm

Hi
I'm a new user.
I have a list of notes.
Each note has a title but no tag.
I want to convert the title to a tag for each note.
Is this possible to do automatically?
Thank you.

Hello,

I'm afraid there's no automatic way to do this.
But when you export your notebook to XML, you can see that the structure of the XML is pretty straightforward.
I'm sure you can come up with some search-and-replace scheme there to get what you want, e.g.
1) replace all

Code: Select all

tags = ""
with empty string (this will remove all tags!)
2) replace

Code: Select all

title = "
with

Code: Select all

title = "" tags = "


Haven't tried it, but something like this might work.
