Asked by fadimat on 2018-11-26


first - I love rednotebook but I am unhappy with some the latest changes.
- you decided to kill the right pane (categories, tags, ...)
- I can't see the tags on my old entries any more!!!
- sometimes I used 1 categaory but 3-4 tags for one entry. so I could see on the right pane whatelse I've used. made it easier to search.
- I used tags like uni/exp or smiling-buddhas - not possible any more. I can use the _ smiling_buddhas. do I have to exchange them all by hand?

 am I the only one who misses the right pane with all features. any changes back? or do I have to go back to an older version and freeze it?

thanks wolfgang

Thanks for the feedback! For now you can set showTagsPane=1 in the
RedNotebook configuration file to enable the tag panel again. Make sure
to drag the right panel splitter to the left to make the panel visible
afterwards. The configuration file is at
$HOME/.rednotebook/configuration.cfg ($HOME is C:\Users\<username> on

Hi fadimat -- you are not the only person who sorely misses this feature in RedNotebook! I have just followed the same instructions and feel like crying from relief to see all my tags back where they belong. Thanks Jendrik!!
