Clipboard Help+Spell could actually be used to tag most things effectively
I'll try to explain my simplistic strategy in more details later, but the general idea is that to be able to find any tag
rapidly in documents, I use special (and easy to remember) abbreviations (following rules) not confused with "real" words (example : for theatre
, I'll use, THETHE
; Software, SOFSOF
; etc.). I also have a list of the tags I use.
"Clipboard Help+Spell" can include the list of these tags so that I can paste them relatively rapidly in a file name, as I type a text in word, etc. without making any spelling mistake. Of course, "Clipboard Help+Spell" is not exactly meant for that (I haven't found a way to alphabetically sort my tags in the context menu to find then as fast as possible, etc.), but, right now, it's the only tool I found for that. Anybody knows a better tool ?
Tagging in this way (inserting "real" text) is effective to find ideas quickly -- one can use any Desktop search software (X1,Copernic, Archiarius, etc.) to list the documents which include the tags.
Right now It's not very elegant and there might be other ways to achieve what I'm trying to achieve -- like using Tagg
. But it's the only way I found that almost guaranties I'll be able to recover my ideas rapidly whatever the Desktop search software I' using (or even the OS : using beagle in Linux, for instance).
It's good to be able to do normal "word searches", but, as everybody knows, it's even more powerful to use some kind of tagging on top of it. More about it after work... maybe! (and especially, Evernotes' ability to transfer its tags to an email, MS word document, etc.
