REQUEST: [Feature Request] Shortcuts folders

Recommended Posts

My Shortcuts list in the sidebar is egregiously long because it's so useful -- though one negative side effect is the "Recent Notes" list drops below the fold when my laptop isn't connected to a monitor (my second most frequently-accessed area because switching back and forth between multiple notes is such a common behavior).

 

It would be awesome to be able to make Folders for different Shortcut collections so they could be collapsed depending on context. Right now I use a hack to separate the chunks with a dummy "spacer" note, but actual folders would be way more elegant and bring the Recent Notes back into play... (on a related note, it would be awesome to just be able to move Recent Notes to the top. And make it more items as needed ;-P).

Great idea!  Very useful.

 

It would also be great if we could place these shortcut folders horizontally across the top tool bar, like is done in the Browser (FireFox, Chrome).

I'm assuming 'shortcuts' are basically just links to the note's UI,  so if instead of making a shortcut you hit Ctrl-Copy Note Link and saved that in a note,  you could have one note with a (long) list of shortcuts,  and put a single shortcut to that note in your sidebar.  Open it in a new window and jump around as required.  If you require more than one note's worth of shortcuts,  make another - etc.

 

EDIT:  Sorry - windows user speaking.  Plus there's arguments that you don't need a "classic" link anyway - https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/58313-keyboard-shortcut-for-copy-classic-note-link/ - some testing may be required...

Gaz, you idea is still a good one.  It takes a few more steps, but using a Note as a container for other Note links is a good idea.  It also has the benefit of finding the "master" Note via search.

 

The one downside is that you can't put Saved Searches (as a link) in a Note.  But you could put the Search Expression.

I wait for a folder option since the beginning. it's so obvious and simple to create.

Just want to bump this idea. The problem with gaz's idea is a lot of my shortcuts are tags with 80+ notes. Thus I need a shortcuts folder so I dont have to scroll down so far!

 

edit- just a note that I'm a windows user and we certainly need this!

OK - this is an old thread,  so I moved it to the Feature Requests forum so people can vote.  I'm in the same position now of having a long Shortcuts list that I hide and reopen a lot during the day.  I agree folders (or stacks,  or whatever) would be helpful...

Everyone else in favor please click the vote arrow in the top left corner!
