How to create a filter for tasks WITHOUT a label

It's easy to setup customized filters for the different labels. I just use the normal stuff like "@home & @private & !@hobby". Just to imagine, that I understood the concepts about label filtering. But now I will filter all my task, so that the list shows all the task which are not associated with a label. Similar to @=='' or @==' '. How I can do this?

I don't think there is a syntax for this. There should be!

Can't you just list them all using this syntax?

!@home & !@office &!@phone

I already tried this solution. Works fine with three to five labels. But, currently I work with around twenty different labels and "no label" ;-), which means not categorized yet. To set your proposed filter, this is boring. And if I change or add labels it's even more awful to keep that in synch. But thank you for your proposal. I agree with your statement, probably there is no syntax. But then it's a good requirement for a future version :-).

+1 for a 'label:none' search term

Alright I see that it would be a mess if you need to sync 20 labels.

I agree that we should have a label:none search term.
