[SOLVED] [REQUEST] Sort by Creation Date (default naming convention gives me anxiety)
I understand the principle behind the suggested naming system whereby each Zettel's name begins with the UID. I understand that if you follow this principle and do View > Sort by > Title (Z First), you essentially emulate the functionality of "Sort by Creation Date (Reverse)".
That said, I have two issues with the suggested naming system:
The lesser problem for me is an aesthetic one. I don't like seeing a bunch of numbers in my note browser window on the left. But I can live with that.
The bigger problem for me is that seeing the creation UIDs displayed at all times gives me depression or anxiety. Because I can always see the creation date in front of me, I often feel like "I'm not creating enough notes, I should create more notes. Yesterday I only made 7 notes, that sucks, why even bother, I'm just not going to use this app".
I understand that not everyone has to deal with such issues, but if I get such feelings, maybe there are other users out there who get them, too.
The thing is, I do want to see the notes in my browser in reverse chronological order. But in order to see it that way, you are forcing me to use your naming convention, which is causing me distress. Using "Sort by Modification Date" is not quite the same, that's more like the Noguchi filing method.
Therefore, I'd like to make a (hopefully small) feature request to include the possibility of sorting by creation date natively within the app instead of relying on the UID-in-the-name convention.
P.S. I do use UIDs for the reasons you explain on your blog, but I put them inside the note at the bottom, where I don't have to see them at all times.
