As someone who made the switch from Evernote, I understand. Joplin's plugins are a little light on documentation, but we have a pretty good forum here, so if you have questions, just ask.
That said, Evernote also has features that 90% of its users aren't aware of. Just the nature of the beast - as features are added, complexity rises and there will always be users who don't need or don't go looking for the more advanced features. Like this forum, Evernote's forum is also a good place to get help - difference is you get a lot more interaction with the developers here. So not only can you be sure they are hearing your praise or complaints (which has always been in doubt at EN forum), but the message doesn't get filtered by a middleman (does Ian Small actually read what's happening on EN forum? I doubt it). By contrast, lead dev for Joplin is an active participant here.
Closing the loop on the dying tabs: my Joplin app has now been running for 5 days straight and the Note Tabs are still alive and well. This bug is fixed as far as I'm concerned. Thanks again @benji300 !
Love the plugin!
I have a feature request. It would be nice to be able to copy the markdown link to a note from a context menu of the tabs. I often want to cross link between open notes and that would be really handy. There is already the Copy Markdown link to active note which I also use but for that I need to actually open the note, then klick into the body and grab the link. Copying "from the tab" means I don't have to leave the active note.
Thank you for your feedback.
But unfortunately I decided not to add a context menu to the plugin. Although I also would like to have one. It would not be supported very well. I've made some analysis here.
Real quick, I can tell you to go to Tools>Options>Plugins Then type Note Tabs into the search box. When you see the card with the plugin, click Install. That's it! Restart Joplin and you are good to go.
Do you mean your saved favorites were deleted or the entire panel was no longer visible? I really can't imagine how an update of this plugin could cause this behavior. I would say we wait and see if others have the same problem.
Saved favorites were deleted. It has happened before, but this was the first time that I could notice what happened right before it. I will try to pay closer attention and if it happens again I will post in the Favorites thread. Thanks!!
So I don't know if it is my particular settings, but when I select Automatically pin notes when edited then every time I open a folder or do a search, whatever is at the top of the note list opens in the viewer and gets pinned. This is unworkable. I end up with dozens of unwanted tabs pinned.
Was the intention really that it only got pinned when the note got edited? I do really like the idea of notes staying open in tabs when I actually open them. But I don't want the first note of every notebook I open to automatically get pinned. Same with the first search result of every search.
Am I doing something wrong?
EDIT: Yes! I was!
I'll leave this here in case anyone makes the same mistake I did. It was a different setting that was causing my problem. The Automatically pin notes when edited setting works just fine. But I had also selected pinned under Add tab behavior. Given the way Joplin works I'm not sure how that behaviour would be useful, but I guess for some it might.
Thanks for this plugin. I really think it should be part of core. I can't imagine using Joplin without it.
That's a good idea. I have made a note of it.
However, there will be a small limitation. The menu item "Open in new tab" would always be visible when the context menu is opened. So even if you don't right click on an internal link. Currently, the entries in the context menu can only be statically defined and are so always displayed.
