File directory management

Although tag-based management is very convenient, in my opinion, tags should be a supplement to directories and do not represent directories.

I think: an article belongs to a directory, but it can have multiple tags

It is for this reason that I have been using VS Code to write Markdown, to record personal study notes and work-related notes.

Because each article has a different type, or workspace.

So I’m looking forward to improving this part of Bear. And be happy to pay for it. Now I just install Bear and have installed it for a long time, but I haven’t used it.

I’m looking forward to Bear,. I’ve been watching the progress and progress of Bear development.

Here’s the workaround that I’m using. Maybe you can use a similar approach to simulate folders?

Example: You can have “folder” tags like #Folder/Notes, and keep all of your individual tags in a separate section like #Tag/Design, #Tag/Art.

That said, it takes a lot of effort to maintain. A dedicated folder feature might make things easier to use.

Another idea would be to implement special tag types. For example, there could be special tags for folder, date, category, type, etc.).

These tags could have special rules (e.g., each note can only have one folder tag or category tag, and is displayed with a custom icon and color inside of the note).

This would re-use the same tagging system and still let people use the system flexibly).


So I hope to suggest a folder management function. It can manage my documents more conveniently.

For me, tags are just a classification of documents. A document may have multiple tags, but it will only belong to one folder.

I hope developers can consider this suggestion.
