Home Help 02 Content Detection Content Types

SnipNotes scans your notes automatically for several content types:

  • Phone numbers
  • Internet links
  • Email addresses
  • Locations und GPS coordinates
  • Images
  • Events
  • Flight numbers

When SnipNotes detects such a content inside your note, it highlights the matching portion of the text and displays an appropriate icon next to your note.

Content types are especially useful for two applications:

  • You can perform quick actions with the content of your notes, see Context Actions
  • You can filter your notes by content type and e.g. show only notes that contain phone numbers

If SnipNotes detects a wrong content type and e.g. erroneously marks your parcel tracking ID as a phone number, you can disable content detection for an individual note:

  • iOS: Long-press on the pen (edit) icon and select “Recognize note as text”
  • macOS: Right-click on the note and select “Recognize note as text”
