Filtering the "Go To" list

I have groups with the following structure:




Now, when I want to move a note representing some “term” to the specific folder, or go to a specific folder, if I press Ctrl+Cmd+G (“Go to”) or Ctrl+Cmd+M (“Move to”) and search for “Terms”, I see all of the folders. What I would like to be able to do is type “finance terms” and have the list filtered to only show the “Finance/Terms” group.

I could work around this by creating groups that repeat the parent group name:

Architecture/Architecture Terms

Finance/Finance Terms

Technology/Technology Terms

Then searching for “finance terms” shows only the group I want. This is ugly, though, because I have many such situations and the resulting group names all contain the redundant parent group name.

Is there a way to have the “Go to” and “Move to” dialogs filter the search results based on “parent group” names?

No, this isn’t supported. The popovers match an item by name, not location.

You could add such an alias to the group as aliases are also used when matching.

And to @stuartro, here’s an illustration…

This will do the job (nicely!). Thank you :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

You’re welcome.
