Organize Your Notes
Alternote makes it easy and fun to deal with your notes. Here are some basic recipes of how to organize them.
# Create a Notebook
Notes are separated into notebooks. To create a notebook, click “New Notebook...” in sidebar. Also you can use File → New Notebook menu command or
Cmd+Shift+N keyboard shortcut.
# Organize Notebooks into Stacks
To bring more clarity in your structure you can group notebooks into stacks. To do that, right-click a notebook and choose “Move to New Stack” option. You can drag notebooks between stacks, rename or remove stacks.
You can sort notebooks by name, note count or with custom order — just drag them around!
# Star Notes
Alternote uses a very simple concept unlike Evernote shortucts. Just star a note — that’s it. You can click a little star icon near a note in note list, a bigger one in the right top corner of the app or just use
Cmd+D shortcut. You can access starred notes list in the sidebar. Hit
Cmd+9 to see them all.
# Move Notes around
You can drag notes from note list to any sidebar item: a notebook, starred notes list, a tag or trash.
Alternatively, you can select a bunch of notes, right-click them choose “Move to...” and a notebook to move to.
# Use Tags
Another way to organize your notes is to assign tags. In Alternote tags can be nested and have a color to differ one from each other.
