Offline Notebooks - Empty list when scrolling, no search icon, sorting from Z-A

Recommended Posts


I have 433 notebooks.

I would like to have some of them as offline notebooks.

But I can not choose them:

1. When I scroll through the list of 433 notebooks in the pop-up, suddenly the list gets empty while scrolling (screenshot 1).

2. When I try to choose some of the notebooks as offline notebooks from this list, I cannot achieve to get notebooks with names starting for example with "A", because the list of "Offline notebooks" starts in a reverse order Z-A (screenshot 2) and:

3. there is no option to SEARCH in the list of 433 notebooks for those I would like to mark as offline notebook.

Just a word about having more than 400 notebooks:

To me it seems to be too heavy on notebooks, creating a too granular setup of the information.

If you would shift to use tags, and reduce the number of notebooks (probably 1/10th should work without a problem), you reduce your current problem, and can work more efficiently.

Tagging in general allows to put one piece of information into several categories at once - both permanent (type, subject, date, use, people etc.) and fluid (pay, read, phone, computer, open etc.).

Tags plus search allows me to "find everything" - which in the end is the objective of using EN.

My main driver to employ a new notebook instead of using the existing ones is to set up a new sharing space for others.

Unfortunately tags offer no offline options so I understand the usage of notebooks to get sorted out, what is downloaded.

Workaround: Could you just open the notebook (from notebook section) you want to get offline and mark this to be available offline via the three dot menu? It is a lot of work to do this for each but maybe working in the end.

If having 40 notebooks instead of 400, it makes switching the download option easier. But this is only one effect to reduce the number of notebooks - easier selection in filters or other per notebook actions is another, maybe more important reason.

Selecting through the 3dots is a slick alternative - thanks for the idea.
