Re: differentiating categories from tags


Hi Jendrik,

Seems to me coloring (foreground or background) tags may be of use; doing so with categories may have less of an increase in benefit since for most people they may be both fewer in number and already better organized.

Good thought.

does anyone else have an opinion on this? Would coloring categories or tags make stuff easier or more confusing?

I have just been experimenting with version 1.4, and can say I do like the new search pane with word clouds, and think it is much better than the old search pane.

Just one suggestion to make it easy and quick to differentiate between categories with entries and tags without entries within the tag word cloud, would be to make categories with tags a different colour to just tags without entries.

Hi Michael,

why do you need to differentiate between them?


Hi Jendrik

I want to be able to quickly pick out the categories from amongst the tags. It is no big deal and there is another way I can pick out the categories by adding a marker to the category tag. I treat categories like general main topics which have descriptive titles, and then use tags like subtopics, they are more specific. One journal book has about 10 categories and 30 or so more specific tags. I will usually only have one category per journal note, but may have several tags.
