Hierchical tabs

An interesting discussion in Outliner Software

I’m thinking about posting this

I don’t recall seeing any images here, so I’ll try to describe what I see in Bear’s hierarchy”:

I have three notes:

  Note 1 with #tag2

    #tag2

  Note 2 with #tag1/tag2

    #tag1/tag2

  Note 3 with #tag2/tag3

    #tag2/tag3

Bear takes these three notes and creates this tag hierarchy in the left column:

  # tag1
    # tag2
  # tag2
  # tag2
    # tag3

I would expect tag2 to be associated with all three notes since each one contains it. Instead each instance of tag2 in the left column selects a different note.

  # tag1 > # tag2 > # tag3
  # tag2 > # tag1
  # tag2 > # tag3

I realize that hierarchical tagging is a very difficult problem, in particular because it can result in recursion. As my example stands, you should (I think) have a path # tag1 > # tag2 > # tag3

If I simply change the tag in Note 1 to #tag2/tag1,

  # tag1
    # tag2
  # tag2
    # tag1
  # tag2
    # tag3

then I have infinite recursion although Note 3 will end it.

  # tag1 > # tag2 > # tag1 > # tag2 ....

If Bear simply checked to see that no tag appears twice in a path, then we have these possibilities, which I think is what I want (do I really know?):

  # tag1 > # tag2 > # tag3
  # tag2 > # tag1
  # tag2 > # tag3

Up next I replied to a FB post by Becca link Becca links to this article by Rawan Abdelbaki so I want to learn something useful from it. I didn’t.

I couldn’t help
