Please fix this sort issue.  Since unable to sort notes by Date Created [first created note in notebook would be at top which is instead last], the export of the notes puts the last note created first which presents a last-first Scriptural index.

Thanks

Notes export is certainly lacking the data to re-sort the Notes, so you would have to request that feature in Notes itself.

Hi Dave,

I was looking to have the notes sorted correctly prior to the export.  Seems the export should be as the sort is for the notebook upon export.  That is the problem...there is no way to sort the notes from created first to last.  Date created only sorts by last created to first rendering a backwards sort to the export.

My guess is that the sort is not distinguishing the notes over the full timestamp of the note creation.  For example if I have a note created 2021-06-07 10:00:00 CST [Luke 1] and another at 2021-06-07 11:00:00 CST [Luke 2] in the same notebook, then I should be able to display them in that order and send them to the export properly ordered.  For some reason the only way to sort ends up with 2021-06-07 11:00:00 CST [Luke 2] then 2021-06-07 10:00:00 CST [Luke 1].  The export then has the notes backward.

It doesn't seem like much of a 'feature' to be a able to have the notes in the order they are created.  Dragging notes into a certain order, like you drag a note to the trash, prior to export, that may be a bit of a feature.  But exporting them in the order which they were created seems like a simple standard thing.

Brad Saterfiel:

But it needs to be requested as I indicated because your comments here are only good for discussion and assistance. If I had indicated that it was a software problem (or Bug), you could include Bug: in the title of your thread to get the attention of Faithlife.
