I am an absolute inexperienced new user in TB. I apologize in advance for my lack of understanding of even probably the most basic elements. Having spent too many hours today pursuing this, I’m finally throwing in the towel and asking for help. I am working my way through The Tinderbox Way, but apparently haven’t gotten far enough for this question.
I exported a MindNode file from my iPad as OPML and imported it into TB successfully. I have three branches of notes from a book (chapter 1, 2, and 3 branch). I’d like to tag each parent and all its children with the appropriate chapter number. For example, my goal is to take every group and note of the chapter 1 branch and tag each one of those as ‘chapter1’.
I did create a user attribute, so I feel like that’s a win. But from there, I have figured out how to set the default tag on everything in the document to one of the tags… but that’s not helpful. I’ve yet to stumble or research my way into how to apply a tag to a whole branch.
Am I looking for an agent here, or a rule, or do I have to do this by hand on each and every group/note in each branch?
Admittedly, I’m using this as an opportunity to learn, so I’m not 100% sure achieving this goal will provide any real utility if/when it’s done!
P.S. I did run across this thread, which I feel like is getting close to doing what I’m looking for, but I’m not deep enough into TB yet to decipher what’s going on there, nor even where to put that.
Many thanks if you’ve made it this far. Any thoughts or guidance, in simple terms, would be greatly appreciated!
