Tagging multiple notes

Is there a way to tag multiple notes at a time? I have imported a large number of notes from Evernote and would like to apply new tags to multiple items at once.

    Hi Eric,

    in the next release we'll implement drag&drop on Tags ( Mac version ) but right now there isn't a way to associate a tag to multiple notes.

    Did this happen yet? Would like to import notes from Evernote, but it's not quite there yet....tagging multiple notes and adding folders/subfolders and i'm yours.

    Hi, I just imported some 6,000 Evernote web clips into Bear. There were grouped into a large number of tags. currently a simple way of handling the resulting long tag list is to rename each tag to something like evernote/tagname. this will put all the clipped tags into evernote and greatly simplify the tag list in teh left hand panel.
    After that you can add your other notes and tags in any way you like.

    Yes, you can drag&drop multiple notes on a tag. Here more info about drag&drop on iOS http://www.bear-writer.com/faq/Drag%20&%20Drop%20on%20iPad%20an...
