How to rename a tag, resize image and nest more levels

I just purchased bear (the year plan).
It is indeed a beautifully designed app with a really good UX.
However I cannot seem to find a few features that I used to use from other note taking apps which I find important for note taking apps:
- Is there or will you provide the functionality to rename a tag? Currently if you need to change e.g. the name or the position of a tag one needs to find all tags in all notes and modify them manually, which is very difficult if you have many notes.
- Can you resize an image in a note? (in case of a larger image)
- Is it possible to create more levels in tags? Not just two levels. If not will provide it ?
- Does bear support tables? So far I have only found lists and todos.
- Text highlight

Are the above mentioned feature supported? If not do you have any plans to support them in the near future?

Best regards

    I heard multi-level tags is coming.
    The other question, renaming tags at once, that's a cool idea.

    You can use find and replace on the Mac version for one note, if that was available on multiple notes, that might be a viable solution. Just thinking out loud ...

    I'll add a vote for tables too.
    Note you can use "bold" for standing out passages of text, not exactly highlighting but might be an option.

    Fellow user,

    Hi Alexandros,

    • Right now Bear doesn't come with this functionality but is on our todo list.

    • Is possible to display images as thumbnails

    • I confirm more levels are coming, we didn't make it in time for version 1.0.5 but most likely they'll be available in 1.0.6

    • No, it doesn't right now but is on our todo list.

    • Text highlight seems to be a required feature lately, but we are still skeptics about it.

    Bump. I would love a feature that would allow to resize images within the note. Similar to Evernote.

    I have to stick to evernote because I end up printing my notes. With Bear, I have no option but to have large images when I print a note.

    I've recently moved from Evernote to Bear and absolutely love it! However, the lack of image resizing ability is really disappointing! Please consider implementing it!!!
    Thank you
