How can I sort favorites descending, ignoring caps?

thanks very much

Are you referring to the Favorites section of the Navigate sidebar?
If so, that can’t be sorted.

Also, by and large, case is ignored in DEVONthink.

Not automatically but via drag & drop.

thank you @BLUEFROG and @cgrunenberg

You’re welcome :slight_smile:

I have to sort them manually which is fine, but can take some time if there is a long list of favorites.

I would like to generate a list of favorites as a .txt file, sort them alphabetically in BBEdit, come back to DevonThink and sort them manually based on the sorted BBEdit list.

How could I generate the a list of favorites as a .txt file ?

My question could perhaps be of help to other forum members in the same situation.

thank you

I’m curious why you’d have a such a long list of favorites.

Because we are all patiently waiting for Folders in the sidebar!!

I’m sorry, I don’t understand what you mean by folders in sidebar
thank you

because of the absence of a search box for most sorter functions. For me, it’s a big pain in the neck

For example “take note” which I use many times a day

thank you

See, for example, this thread.

yes great idea

There is a feature request which has long been made by a number of long-term users of DT3 - including myself - to add folders to the navigation sidebar (Favorites, Smart Groups, and Smart Rules). This would let users organize the sidebar in a more practical way.

DevonTech has agreed it would be a nice feature but it has not been prioritized, apparently because it is somewhat of a technical challenge since reordering smart rules can affect their operation.
