I am going to try this again.  I keep using this wonderful tool, and it is the best I have ever found, but I keep banging my head against the wall because I can't get back to the note I have worked so hard to create.

I have over 700 notes that I have created in Logos.  Most of them have tags on to enable quick retrieval of those notes using tags.  But when I try to find those tags and call up those notes, it fails.

There are TWO basic tasks I want to see.  

1. When creating a note, I want to see a list of all tags where I can choose which tags the best compliment the note's topic.  In the same manner, if I am editing a note, I want to click a tag button and see ALL the tags where I can decide if I want to ADD, REMOVE or CREATE a tag for that note.

2.  When searching for a note, I want to see a list of all tags to choose which notes I want to review.  I am thinking of a button or field that would open a list of all tags to select the related tags.

In the MOBILE version of Logos, there is a method for exactly what I am describing above.  However, the fact that it is on the phone is also its weakness because it is so small the application fails in not giving me enough screen area to see everything I am working on.

1. When I create a note, I can select the "Edit Tags" menu and see all tags where I can select the ones that apply to the topic of that note.  But it does not allow me to see multiple things I am working on and have to keep bouncing around making edits or reviewing items that should be in my face all the time.

2. When I want to find notes based upon a tag, I can search, and it gives me a list of all the tags I have, and I can mark the ones I want to filter by.  This is great, and it works, but again it is limited by the screen's size.

The PC version of Logos FAILS in doing both of these things is among the most important steps I do in my research.  I would really like to review ALL tags and compare the notes to those tags and decide if I need to ADD, REMOVE, EDIT, or CREATE new tags, OR decide which note would be best used for the message I am preparing. But I can't because there is no way to see all those tags in one place or review the notes attached to those tags.

Could Logos PLEASE add the functionality on the PC version that could do this?

Thank you,

There is a suggestion to see all tags at https://feedback.faithlife.com/boards/logos-desktop-app/posts/possibility-to-show-all-tags-in-notes-tool You could comment on this or create a suggestion based on the Mobile version.
