Is there a way to categorize notes using folders with Bear?

    Hi Justin,

    we preferred to not implement folder in favor of nested tags:

    Lame. For any writer, folders are a must. If you had folders, I would switch today.

    Mike, what particular folder use case you cannot achieve using nested tags? For me it's just a nomenclature

    The ability to organize and visually manage scenes, chapters, and books into a larger work is made much easier with a folder structure. Tags wouldn't come close for me.
