Hello, everyone, and thank you for all your wonderful videos. I was wondering, though, if any of you have done a tutorial video on how to use tags and filters intensely. I'm having problems understanding the best way to assign tags and how to filter them (especially in connection with time periods, that is, how to find all topics tagged "A" in a specific decade). Especially with the possibility of tagging snippets individually, I wonder where I'm crossing the line between profitable hard work or just waste of time.

most people aren't doing much with time as we're all waiting for custom calendars.

I did 2 videos on tags and filtering.

Unfortunately, the timeline doesn't seem to be filtered by tags so once you have the topics filtered you'll have to go through them by hand to find the ones with the dates you care about.

Thanks kbs666, I had seen the first one but somehow had missed the most recent video. Great work!

BTW, how do you use the snippet tags vs topic tags?

If you mean adding tags to text snippets I really don't use them.

How about a video about importing text from PDF tables into RW

There's really no great way to do that. The tables don't copy in well at all which means you end up copying one cell at a time.

I use MS Word as an intermediary step.
  1. Select table text in PDF
  2. Copy to clipboard
  3. Paste into Word
  4. In each row, insert a Tab between columns
  5. Select the text in Word
  6. From the ribbon, choose Insert, Table, Convert Text to Table (Tab should be set as the column separator, and Paragraph marks as the row separator automaticlly, if the formtting is correct; also, the correct number of columns should be pre-set)
  7. Proofread results
  8. Tweak as needed (apply bold to column headers, for example)
  9. Select table
  10. Copy to Clipboard
  11. Paste into snippet in Realm Works.

It is not perfect, but it beats copying cell-by-cell.

Ideally, we should be able to do this in Realm Works directly, but trying to insert a Tab moves out of the snippet, so it doesn't work.
