Feature request: Persistent sort order for notebooks

I’m cleaning up my notebooks, trashing some, updating others. And I’m going slightly mad, because every time I modify a notebook it jumps to the beginning of the list. The effect:

  • I need to reorient myself on whatever page of the list I’m going through, because the context given by the preceding/following notebooks constantly changes.
  • The notebooks that I have actually created and worked on in the past days get pushed back further and further.

Please consider adding an option to sort notebooks by their creation date, so that users can develop a mental map of the “vicinity” of notebooks and thus navigate more quickly.


My notebook inventory is a mess right now after several changes to various notebooks. Please offer a stable sort order.

Bump. I’d really like an option to view my notebooks in the order in which they were created.
