I think archiving is in the works. Danilo will give us more details when he comments.
In the meantime, I wanted to describe the way I use tags to accomplish the same purpose. I give all new notes the tag #inbox. I periodically search with @untagged to make sure I haven't missed any. I may go ahead and assign other tags at this point, or I may wait until I'm finished working with the note. I also remove the #inbox tag when I'm finishied with the note. So in essence I've archived all the notes that I don't want to trash, and have a means to sort my archived notes as I desire.
This was copied from the Bear Pro note that comes pre-installed in Bear:
Now, in Bear’s search box, you can type `@todo` or `@task` in to find all your notes that still have tasks to finish. For bonus points, you can also search `@done` to find all notes with tasks that you’ve already completed.
Bear’s search triggers are: `@todo, @task, @done, @code @tagged, @untagged, @files, @images, @attachments`.
[Check out this video](https://vimeo.com/182400202) to see Bear’s search features in action.
Finally, you can use double quotes to search specific phrases, such as `"bear is cool"`
Thanks tod. I really like the Bear app and want to see the devs succeed. Shiny Frog is a small operation and I know it's difficult for them to juggle support and programming. I want to try and help out by providing assistance where I feel like I can.
+1 to archive. I do all my initial writing in Bear (I'm a tech writer amongst other things) and I want to be able to archive all my "published" content. I've been using the tag approach, but it means remembering to add the filter every time I change projects.
I would really like:
- read-only option on all notes in archive. - That way I can copy parts without risking accidental changes. - Archive has to be searchable, but separate from main search, (will use as repository of snippets, quotes, published articles. old stuff to reuse) - Maybe have an easy edit override (in case something has to be changed) on single notes (in archive), but returns to read-only once done. - Maybe also a manual read-only switch on regular notes (not in archive) as well? - Select, Share, and copy … should be available, and iOS keyboard should not pop up on read-only notes. - Maybe such select/copy also in trash, now you cannot copy anything from notes in trash! But Bears love trash! Now they are locked out ;(
