Very strange. MarginNote only supports the proprietary Omni Outliner format, not the open OPML format supported by many other apps. Seems easier to use an outliner that exports as plain text than this…

I just tried within Outlinely. It filters only within the note. The design works only under the assumption that one would put multiple tags within a single extended note.

As I have mentioned before, this is useless to organize information of larger amount. Useless.

Outlinely has in-note taggin.

IN-Note tagging: You cannot compare the tags (ideas) you collected from one book with another book. This is even more primitive form of tagging than the one I have seen in Bear. Bear can at leas search the notes that contain that specific tag across: and put them together. One can use further searching to look into each of the notes. BEAR uses the File-based tagging; just like the rest of mac applications.

The IN-note tagging is for long notes. It is a promising direction: but, it lacks the capacity to link ideas across notes. The QDA applications unify the two tagging systems such that ideas you tag in Book1 will still be visible or comparable with the taggs you put in Book2….

Outlinely can search for tags across documents using the “search and navigate window.” Dynalist can search in a single document or across documents. Workflowy does not require you to separate outlines into separate documents. (In fact, it isn’t necessary in the other apps either - they can all handle very large outlines without suffering.) The point I was making though is that you have greater granularity with an outliner document as you can filter the document to see only those items which are tagged. This is not possible in Bear or similar apps.

only because it doesn’t suit the forum title,

has anyone had a dive into omnity.io?

may be useful to you data miners!
