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.

# 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.
