About the Sidebar in Bear

The Sidebar in Bear keeps all your notes organized into two main sections: Notes and Tags. The Notes section contains a few built-in subdivisions with basic organization. The Tags section contains all the tags you’ve applied to notes in Bear.

Here’s how they work.

Notes Section

The Notes section contains our built-in subdivisions for your notes.

Tags Section

As you create notes in Bear, you can add tags to them simply by prefixing words with a pound sign, like #travel or #work. You can also create multi-word tags by wrapping words with two pound signs, like #Star Wars# or #blog post ideas# or #shopping lists#.

The Tags section of the Sidebar in Bear collects tags as you create them. By default, tags are sorted alphabetically (you can change this behavior in Settings > General > Tags List Sorting).
