    I find my pages seem to grow like mushrooms on horse manure.

    Too time-consuming to move them individually to alphabetize.

    Is there a quickie ?

    If you mean the sorting of the Notebooks and/or pages within the Notebooks, I know of NO built in sorting method.

    All I have been able to do is the dragging of them to where I want them.

    Since my query, I've given this some thought.

    I now workaround the lack of a Pages sort in A-B-C order.

    I copy all the Pages into TextPad, order an alpha sort, paste the result into a new page back in 1N, which I title as INX [ Index ].

    Then I create a new page at the bottom, titled EndINX.

    This workaround allows me to jump to the INX page to examine / search the whole section quickly.

    Additional new pages, which accumulate below the last indexed page indicator [ EndINX ] can be individually sorted but below the indexed bunch, if and when I have the time and energy.

    Of course, when the total number of Pages reaches the bottom of my screen, I will to another FULL sort in Textpad.

    For additional new pages I will start a fresh Section, --- 2 , with its own INX-2 Page in future, as and if need be.

    It's goofy but it means I avoid hunting through a long list of jumbled Page titles which has always bugged me.

    Perhaps the 1N crew will someday create a Pages A-B-C button for busy lazy users like me who prefer neatness and order.

    Have agreat day, Dave !!
