Using the Tag Function on Onyx Boox Tablets: Tips for Efficiency

Do you want to know what the tag function is in Onyx Boox tablets and how to use it efficiently? With the latest firmware update, Onyx introduced a number of quality-of-life improvements, one of which is the tags feature. In this guide, we will explain how to make the most of this function and how to use it for easy searching.

How to Add a Tag

To add a tag, follow these steps:

  1. Open a note.
  2. Click the lasso tool and select the word or words you want to tag.
  3. Click the tag button and add a meaningful, simple name for the tag. For example, if you have something you want to do later, you can create a "to-do" tag and easily find all references to it.

Naming Tags Consistently

It is important to keep the naming consistent. For instance, all tags should be lowercase. Moreover, you need to decide if you want to use spaces or hyphens in the tags, depending on the circumstances. This is because a software update in the future may change the tag behavior.

When creating a tag, the word or words you select with the lasso tool are prefilled as the tag name. However, it is much better to ignore this suggestion and assign meaningful, "thematic" tags. This will help you easily search through notes.

Searching for Tags

To search for tags:

  1. Go to the top level of the note app and select the middle or right-hand view option.
  2. Tap on the magnifying glass and tap on any of the visible tag names or search manually for tag names.
  3. Make sure to untick the "handwriting" option if you are just looking for tags, as this will reduce the time it takes to search through your notes.

Pay Attention to Prefilled Tags and Capitalization

For example, if you use the lasso tool on a name (or any capitalized word), the prefilled text will also be capitalized. This means that if you have already created a tag with the same name and then add the prefilled tag, you'll have two different tags – one lowercase and one capitalized.

By following these steps, you can make the most of the tag feature on Onyx Boox tablets and easily search through notes.
