Creating Tags

Tags provide an extra option for organizing your Rem. To add a tag, simply type # twice in your editor.

Editing Tags

Unlike other tools that you may be used to, Tags are just Rem. (In RemNote, Everything is a Rem!). This means that you can access them in the main editor, tag them recursively, place them into hierarchies, etc. Here, we open up a tag as its own document and edit it.

RemNote tags display the color of their associated Rem. Color code tags for easy skimming and organizing.

References vs Tags

RemNote has two primary ways to link ideas together - Rem References, and Tags.

Rem References are used when the link needs to appear in a specific location in the text, such as The [[Dog]] ate my homework. Tags are used when the link is describing the entire Rem, such as My dog ate my homework last night ##Problem. As such, tags automatically move to the far right side of the Rem.

Tags can be used to express the relation that "A is a type of B"; for example I could write Apple ##Food , or RemNote ##(Note-Taking Tool). This becomes additionally powerful when using Templates for Knowledge (Types and Slots).

Note that Tags are actually just Rem - you can open them up as a full page, edit them, make Rem References to them, etc.

Filtering Documents by Tags

You can filter documents by your tags in two ways.

  • Right-click on the tag in your editor and press Filter Document by This Tag.

  • Press Ctrl + F, press ##, and enter the tag to filter by.

Keeping Tags Organized

If you want to keep your tags organized, you can create hierarchies for yourself.

For example, you might make a document called Todo, then create Rem for Urgent, or Active in your Todo document, like this:

Then, you could use these Rem as tags. Hover over the tag on the right to see how it's really underneath Todo Level.

To accelerate this process of finding tags, you can use the Hierarchical Search feature. In the video below, I type Todo Level , Tab , Urgent . Ths allows you to quickly create and access tags within your hierarchy.
