Pin Notes to the Top of Your Notebook


BrianZ71

Idea

I have notebooks with a LOT of notes in them - things like email templates and blogs - and I find myself scouring long lists of notes to find some that I always go back to reference. Would love a feature similar to Twitter's pinned Tweet - the ability to pin a few of your notes to the top of each notebook. Maybe max the number at 3 or 5?  Just add a right click option to each note = Pin to Top.

Why not just use Shortcuts? While not Notebook specific - you can still "pin" frequently used notes for easy access.

If I expand my shortcuts you would see that I have 6 or 7 frequently used notes, a couple of folders, and a saved search or two. Things I use daily.

Another alternative is a "pinned" tag which allows you to quickly identify the most important notes in the notebook. Lots of other solutions have been mentioned in the forums. They depend on how you normally sort your note list. If it's by creation date you can artificially make the date far in to the future (or past) so that always appears at the top. If it's alphabeltically start the title with something that will be at the top of the alphabet. 

Given that this has been a requested feature for many years and EN haven't introduced it when completely overhauling the software, I wouldn't hold out much hope. For me the pinned tag works well and has the advantage of being able to pull out my most important notes whichever notebook they happen to be in.

Thanks for that.  This is probably the best option.

Thanks for the tips. Really surprised that EN hasn't addressed this issue - especially since, as you say, it's been requested for many years. Such an easy thing to add.
