Enable - allow optional independent selection of sort order for @ parent node in a brain
Enable the option to define the sort order of child thoughts for every parent thought INDEPENDENTLY (and differently, as needed). This feature would override the SINGLE sort order for the whole Plex (selected using the already currently implemented strategy), on a node-by-node optional basis. My idea would extend the customize-ability of plex-wide sort order by Name, Type, Last Active, Last Modified or Creation date. While a distinct concept*, the feature proposed herein would be most powerful if it was also accompanied by a new user-defined sort order (see ).
Independent sort orders would be tremendously useful. Even with the sort options presently available, being able to select a different one for each though's children would be very useful.
If a user defined sort could be one of those sort options - so much the better.
Paul Shapiro commented
For me this feature is much better than user-defined sort order because it does not require the user to MANUALLY define the sort order. Rather, it allows the user to INDEPENDENTLY define the sort schema used for the child thoughts under each parent thought in the brain. Currently one selects a single sort order schema for the entire brain - this is very rigid and restrictive and must be fixed.
i would vote for this, but i don't have any points left. i have voted for 'user defined sort order', assuming that user defined meant that i could have different sorts for different groups of child sorts. i realize that i could do this in expanded view, except that expanded view has its own idea of what thoughts i should be looking at, opening thoughts that i have closed. so i don't use expanded view.
