Let's discuss here one feature from Evernote I miss in Joplin.
In Evernote, it is possible to delete all notes with a particular tag, and this tag will be showed nevertheless. Joplin has another approach; once you delete the last note with a particular tag, this tag will disappear.
It is not very convenient for people who use tags extensively.
- For example, if I have tags "todo," "done," "backlog," my goal for the week is to transform "todo 12" into "todo 0". In other words, my goal is to do all 12 tasks I have for this week. And I do not want a tag "todo" to disappear. I want to see "todo 0". That is how I can keep track of my progress.
- Another example, if I have tags "postgre-sql" and "sql" I want to see both options when I type "sql" in the tag adding window. Otherwise, I can forget that I thought in advance about good tags and added them.
- Sometimes tag with "0" indicates that you have a lack in your knowledge base, or you forget to mark notes with that tag. It is useful to see these tags.
Mostly it bothers me with the GTD technic, of course. When I need to restore tags "01-todo", "00-evaluation", "02-days", "03-weeks" and so on. I constantly forget the numbers of these tags, should check it in a special note. It is a huge inconvenience in everyday work.
Finally, I think it is not difficult to delete "tag 0" manually as we do that in Evernote if we do not need this tag anymore. I ask your help in discussing and implementing this feature into Joplin. Thank you!
