1. Why are notebooks not searched in alphabetical order? For instance, if I try to search for my notes in Matthew and my Matthew notebook and type Matthew in the box, a whole cluster of other things pop up first and I have to scroll down to Matthew. If that is my search term, it would seem that would come up first.

2. Why are my notes on Matthew only in order of date created or modified and not in Scripture reference order? Seems odd. 

Thanks!

Graham, as your screen shot shows, it looks fine in the SE. And it remains properly formatted in the SE even after you export it. The distortion comes in Proclaim only. I suggest you create the s;ide you showed but make a line of text that fills the text box from side to side. Then export it to Proclaim, and open it in Proclaim and see if it retains the original formatting. I'll try to send screen shots when I can. Gotta preach in a bit!

Thanks on the upcoming features. Cool!

I think your first paragraph above refers to one of your other posts,

If you open the top notebook - for example - do the six notes it lists contain references to Matthew?

OK, so I went back to check and yes, those other notebooks do contain Matthew references. Perhaps this would be a useful feature. Being able to simply and quickly access a particular Notebook. 

This is similar to another oddity. Using the iPad app, if I open the Library and search on "Mark", first up is a list of all my commentaries on Mark. Great. If I go to one of those commentaries, and then come back to the library, the listing is no longer sorted by Mark even though Mark remains in the search bar. OK. But even if I hit "Search" again, it will not restore the original Mark search unless you clear the seach bar term and re-enter it. It would be nice if you could retain the previous sort until either clearing it or entering a new search referent. 

Fun!

Try just filtering in the notebook section - this screenshot from my ipad but the desktop is similar

i was able to reproduce this - but not totally consistently 

When I did see the change I noted the sort field “top right” was changing from “rank” to “title”. Are you seeing the same?

And i suggest starting a new thread in the mobile apps forum about this second issue

OK, tried the filtering and it works "OK". I know the sorting in reference order feature is coming. But I can work with that.

On the Library, yeah, I never noticeed the toggling issue between Rank and Title. That does seem to be the key. As long as I switch back to Rank, my original search result is there. 

Thanks for all your help as always Graham. You're the best.
