Can you hide tags in the sidebar, but keep them as tags in notes for searching

Is there a way to keep certain tags in notes, but not have them show up in tags list or hierarchy in the left sidebar? I have too many tags in my left plane and its messy. I would like to keep them in the notes and be able to search them as tags, but not have them show up in the sidebar.

One solution would to use another type of search tag, that’s not preceded with a hashtag. Try placing search terms in the bottom of the note bounded by another symbol you use nowhere else and that Markdown doesn’t use for formatting, like a “@”, for instance “@tag@”.

Search for the “@term@”. You’d have to play with the right character to use.

good tip, thank you. I will try that.

Try \#tag which will render those tags as text.

right. but if I use \#tag, then it doesn’t allow me to search for “#tag” in the searchbar.

I would just move all these tags under some parent tag starting with some character down in alphabet (#Z/tag_name #Z/tag_name1 etc). So all these tags would collapse under one parent tag in the bottom of your tag list (if you sort alphabetically)

That’s a good one as it will keep them readily accessible still.
