Looks like sub-folders are sorted by date rather than by name like the tags do. That makes them jump back and forth and doesn't permits the tricks like starting sub-folder name with "!" to put it to the first line.

I'm not sure sorting by date is useful for a note app and propose sorting by name, same as tags.

Tags are also sorted by date by default. This way the most recently modified sub-folder sits on top.

Tags should be sorted by names too then. 😄

There is an option to sort tag "by date" or "Alphabetical" can you add the same option for Subfolder?

I use QOwnNotes to stock all my cli command example, and it's more easy to find what I want when it's sort "Alphabetical"

  • a lot of work was done by @derboblan for the note list, tag tree and note
    subfolder panel, a big thank you for that
    • there now is a new page Panels in the Settings dialog
    • you can configure the sort order of the note list, tag tree and note
      subfolder panel
    • sorting tags by last use is now possible
    • counting used tags in sub folders was also fixed
    • there are options to hide the search bar for tags and note subfolders
    • for note subfolders there are options to show the root folder name, to
      display the note subfolders as tree with a root element and to show the
      full path in the tree

There now is a new release, could you please test it and report if it works for you?

I've tried the new features, and they are top notch! Just what the app needs. Great job @derboblan!

I like new "hide search" feature too. I like too keep the app minimalistic, so I've hided everything. But I've encountered an issue with note create/search, which is note list pane issue really. It has no "create new note" in context menu. Sub-folder list have both "create sub-folder" and "create note", and note list doesn't have anything.

Maybe "create note" better move to the note list context menu with the "enter name" pop-up, like the one sub-folder has.

But you can create notes with Ctrl+N, can't you?

I do, also there's a toolbar button. I just post all the inconsistencies I find in app's UI. If remember correctly, now it has 5 times more "stars" there were when I first joined this hub. I want it to have 5 times more! 😎

🤣, @derboblan. I just found out that you set the default sort order to alphabetically, instead of "by date". Phew...
