Crafting Events

Essentially Event is just some date (an optionally time) in Notes. If you will type in the note something like this: Check the site on [2018-01-21 -1d] then SN will mark the note by Event tag (see above) and will start tracking the note for the time. On 2018-01-21 minus one day SN will start showing the note in active/pending events list […]

Markdown?

Yet thinking and experimenting with Markdown representation of the note. To be honest Markdown looks barely readable in Notes context. Yes, you can easily edit it but it is quite hard to visualize its result without parallel preview. Yet too much visual noise.

That was one of first EverNote design meetings. Somewhere in 2002 Stepan came up with the great idea […]

Personal Wikipedia

At the moment notes are represented as a flat list in order of their creation. Inter-notes hyperlinks While that default list works in most cases you may wish to organize your notes in other structures.

WYSIWYG editing

Under the hood each note is just an HTML file. And when you export the note from the application it gets saved as html file that can be viewed by browsers or other applications and editors like Microsoft Word and the like.
