Is there a way to search only the top level tag within a group of nested tags? I know I can "NOT" out the lower level tags but I have many.

    Hi Tyler,

    I make a quick example, let say you are in this situation, and you selected #tag1




    You'll see in the list notes tagged #tag1, #tag1/tag2 or #tag1/tag3, if you want to see the ones tagged only with #tag1 you can search for -#tag1/. This will exclude any note tagged with a tag1 child.
