Journal NewUI

Datastore

Tags under titles

Example mock-up based on current Journal (0.84) using two lines for title and tags per each entry. Notes: Entries with no tags have their title vertically centred to keep visual balance; entries with more tags than can be displayed end with an ellipsis, this could just be indicative that there are more tags, or have hover hint function showing the remaining un-displayed tags. Clicking a tag should add it to the search field to allow drilling down into results.

CSA: If you incorporate ordered tags, based on filesystem paths, they could look like this:

Tag styles

Toolbar and palettes

See Gary Martin's mockups, such as this:

Tag fill colour is graduated from white to grey based on the tag frequency. Not sure we want to introduce a new 'colour' language but thought a mock-up would be worth it (though it's certainly the most visually clear indication of frequency given the space). Also works with white text and grey to black fill.


GMail-style tag view

Tags drag-and-drop-able from a left-side palette.
