Changing Note's Notebook


Recommended Posts

When I have a note open, and I change which notebook it belongs in, I would expect the note to stay open. What actually happens is that, now that the note belongs to a notebook that isn't open, it disappears and I have to go find it. I don't know about other people, but it would be more intuitive for me if the note would stay open and the open notebook would change to match.

Hi.  Try using the All Notes view,  or open the note in a separate window to keep it open.  I can imagine that if the active notebook view changed in the way you suggest,  everyone using an 'inbox' notebook and processing multiple notes into the correct folders would have to manually jump back to Inbox each time they assign a note.  Not good...

If you open the note in it's own window, it won't disappear

When I'm cleaning up notes in my Inbox,
- the last thing I do is update the notebook; knowing the note will drop out of the view
I wouldn't want the context to switch to the new notebook

If you uncheck "Search when note is updated" in the options menu under the "Search" tab, it will stay open.

This is a useful behavior sometimes. I often want find a group of notes and just reassign them to different notebooks, while retaining the current search filter (which let me find the notes). This keeps the note list consistent with the search filter; consistency is good in a UI, while "intuitiveness" is a fuzzy concept. Fortunately, as gustavgi points out, you can have it your way as well, at least in the Windows client.
