Note Sorting Saved States or Keyboard Shortcuts

depending on the situation I like to use different note sorting settings…

  • for example when I’m looking through all my notes I like to sort by modification date so my most recent notes are right at the top
  • but when I navigate to a set of notes by the tag menu I almost always have them sorted by title

since I am constantly switching back and forth between these views, going through the multiple menu clicks needed to change the sorting setting becomes tedious, and so my question/request is…

  • is there a way to have bear save the last used sorting preference on a more specific basis vs just an app wide basis?
  • or (more likely) is there a keyboard shortcut I could use to quickly switch between the sorting options on the fly?

On MacOS you can do this by setting system keyboard shortcuts for Bear:

Thanks, I’ll have to give that a try

Thank you for this tip. Greatly appreciated. Exactly what I was looking for.

I would like to see something like this on iOS/ iPadOS; the ability to set sorting per tag would be a nice addition.
