I suggest you ...

Better note organization: sub-notebooks/folders, labels/tags, etc.

Provide a way to better organize notes, beyond the current notebook organization. This could be done with nested notebooks or folders, labels for notes, sections, chapters, etc.

        This feature is a must to be a productivity app and not just simply a novelty as it appears to stand now. It should also sync with Dropbox and obtain the organizational scheme based on the folder directories. Having such a sync option would also allow for the ability to launch and edit PDFs directly from the app while the PDF may exist only in the cloud within dropbox and contained in a sub directory called PDFs for instance while notes would exist in another folder. Obviously, adding google drive functionality would be amazing but maybe I'm asking to much. As such I could modify my dropbox folders or the Squid file tree and they would both update one another. Such a feature would make the app useful for students and business people alike.

        Darn. Nobody?

        I'll start looking for a new note taking application.

        Let's put our money where our comments are: Who else would pay $5 if Andrew implemented tagging within pages and and a filtering function as pro features?

        Me!

        (Some kind of integration with IFTTT/zapier for trello would also be great but let's keep it simple for now)

      • Russ commented  · 

        Sorry for cross posting, but I still think adding meta data (tagging) is the only thing you should be working on at the moment. Have a look at how Evernote does this - then do it better. If I could tag my notes (inline within the handwriting would be awesome!) and then push the pages tagged as "Actions" out to Trello via IFTTT or Zapier it would raise my productivity to a whole new level.

        I think if you guys have stopped working on this product you should open source it or at least come clean with your loyal supporters so they can start looking for an alternative.

        Fingers crossed you haven't stopped!?!

        This is killing me - I LOVE Squid/Papyrus, but my old notebooks are creating a ton of clutter. Worst case, just add some kind of "archive" feature to move the old notebooks out of the way (that's not a fix, but it would be a short-term workaround that might not take much development effort - maybe?).

        Thanks for all your work toward this app - it really is fantastic (but it BADLY needs this additional organization feature)

        My notebooks are labeled for each month (April 2014) would line to put them into a folder (2014) so I don't have to scroll all the way done to the latest notebook (August 2014) all the time

        It's been over 2 years since this idea was first mentioned. It has been the number 2 most voted feature request for quite some time now. How has this not been addressed in any way? It seems like a no-brainer

      • Shmuel commented  · 

        This is just what missing.
        Please add this and youll be the best app!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Yes yes yes PLEASE! Want to use this app for college but definitely needs some updating . Love it though

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Tags would make this so much better. I'm currently thinking about exporting finished notes to evernote just so I can tag them, but this feels like a silly workaround. Please!!

      • Traci Taylor commented  · 

        It's been over 6 months since the last update on this idea. Is anyone making any progress on this? Even if you opt for a tag feature, it would be really helpful to be able to have a feature to archive old notebooks. I use this to organize my notes for projects for work, but notebooks for closed projects clutter up my notebook list. I'd like to retain these notes to refer back to, but archive them since I no longer need them on a day-to-day basis.

        Holy christ are you guys serious? The second highest voted idea and there's still no official "investigation" for this particular one. I know it takes a while between something being planned and something actually being integrated but the fact that this has not even been added to the investigation list says a lot about your prioritization on this idea(or lack thereof).

        I've seen ideas with less than 1/100 of the votes for this one already being planned or started. Granted they are probably easier to implement so I do take that into consideration but this is just unbelievable. If one were to start creating a biological child today, the child would probably be in 2nd grade by the time this feature is implemented if at all. Sorry if I sound like an entitled bratty clueless customer. I just don't think it's too much to ask for that this idea get investigated at least.

        I would love to see the addition of at least 1 level of sub-folders. Labels would be my next wish list item after that one. Hopefully the code allows for it and isn't too unwieldy. I would rather have it as-is than unbearable.

      • hes11th commented  · 

        I understand there must go a lot of work into creating a new feature so I understand it's time consuming but please can you get around to allowing us to create folders and subfolders sooner rather than later? I can hold off on a search feature for a while but if we can't create folders and subfolders soon, I think may have to switch to lecture notes next school year. I'd say this is probably the most important feature for us right now.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I'm starting to take lots of notes and the single level folder structure is becoming unweildy. lt would be such an improvement if we had sub folders.

        I use papyrus all the time for work. But i need to archive my older notebooks or make them hidden. The clutter grows as i use it and i may have to look at an alternate tool which would be sad because everything else just works

      • Denis Campezano commented  · 

        Search for papyrus in windows phone ( youtube ) is amazing! Why is so hard to do the same in android? Sorry for my poor English.

      • David Glanville commented  · 

        More than the single level of "notebooks" and "notes"

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        More hierarchy for notebooks, as many notes inside one notebook is not enough
