Pinned or "favorite" notes

Postby orsonk » Mon Jun 03, 2019 5:03 pm

I've tried out Notejoy recently. It has some very nice features, although I don't think it would work very effectively with a couple of thousand notes! And that's basically why I'm sticking with Cinta.... I think it's able to accommodate many many notes and still relatively easily help you find the note you want.

Having said that, I'd love to have the ability to PIN notes (as Notejoy provides) or mark somehow as my favorites (I use tags for this now), and combine that with a command that would open ALL my favorites. So when I get into a work session, I can just hit Ctrl+F9 or whatever and know that my hottest notes for this section of Cinta will all pop open.

Anyone see this as useful?

Hi Orson, and thanks for the suggestion!

In fact, this has been on our radar for quite a long time already.. and seems to be a popular request.
Here it is on the roadmap: ... ning-notes

Unfortunately this didn't get into the plan for V4, since we had quite a mouthful of other improvements and changes to implement there,
given that the whole UI is getting revamped. But once again, we are definitely keeping an eye on such popular requests and intend to schedule
them promptly after the V4 release.

In the meantime, to keep some notes always on top, you can Alt+Enter on them and set the creation and modification dates in the future, and then sort by creation date. (Note that you'll still be able to modify the note and keep the creation date in the future). Hope this helps!
