One of my favorite tricks is to add keywords to a title to aid retrieval. This lets me use
Goto Anything as a sort of a search for keywords. For example, let’s say I’m using
baz as keywords. I can then search for
foo bar or
foo baz etc to locate the relevant notes/todos.
Ideally, I would like to tag it and not litter the title but right now,
Goto Anything doesn’t consider tags so I have to litter the title.
Can you change that? Thanks!

The behavior is very different than normal keywords which greatly affects the interaction.
For example, if I search for multiple keywords, I’ll get a list that contains them in the modal. If I search for multiple tags, I only get a list of tags that match the first tag enterred in the modal and then I have to select from that list that matches that first tag, switch to the note list and then scroll through.
When using keyword titles, I can alter my specificity of searching as I’m getting feedback to see which combination will elicit the results I’m looking for. I can combo keywords as needed. I can add/remove hyphens and plurality and get live feedback. I can’t do any of this with tags.
Searching for tags will be improved in the future. AFAIK there’s an idea for GSOC 2020.
