Is it possible to sort list of Labels ?
At this time it's not possible. It's sorted by the amount of tasks each one has. We will consider adding this ability in future updates.
OK same situation is with Filters
You can manually sort Filters, from the 3 dots on the left hand side, click, hold and drag.
Thanks It works , I didn't see it
I'd like to sort labels the way I want, and you should implement nesting of them too. If it's possible with projects why not here?
Ditto on others comments that I would love the ability to sort labels or the ability to group them.
Agreed. It is tricky to manage the labels when you have a great number of them. Sorting them in different ways would be a great improvement.
This is a must have. If you work with large volumes of labels it is highly inconvenient to work with them if you cannot sort them
I agree. I would love to have the ability to sort my labels in the same manner that I can sort my projects.
+1 for sorting labels. This seems basic to an effective workflow.
+1 for me for me too for sorting labels, either alphabetically or (as is apparently the current default case) by frequency used.
+1 for this - it is a must have
+1 for this
I would like to be able to sort my labels from A to Z, please.
I have always to scan my labels list to be able to filter
Sort A-Z & group by projects, labels, priorities
Would opt out labels being ordered from most populated to least. Can't really see the point of it in practice.
I used to put numbers before my contexts (labels) to let them display in the order I most likely proceed to do them. I do miss this feature in Todoist.
Are you planning to implement this someday (soon)?
Right now we're not working on this, but we may consider adding it in the future.
Thanks for a quick reply, David. I believe this is quite a useful feature. You guys have done such a great piece of work here. One step closer to perfection! ;)
I have labels for people.. They want to be grouped, I have labels for location, they want the same, energy, etc, etc..
Evernote nested tags are the best example of this, which is pretty much the same as labels in todoist.
I use filters to produce the grouping of labels.
One filter could be: @new & @support, @in_progress & @support, @waiting & @support
Every part of the filter (comma separated) will be a group (and title) and the tasks within that group will be under it. For me that is enought to keep track of support tickets.
Thanks for sharing Mikael Asp Somkane, will try to apply this on my labels.
Still flagging for true label sorting and grouping/nesting }:-)
Is it possible to sort tasks within a label (manually or otherwise)? It appears you can sort within a filter (manually at least) and within a project (manually or by date/priority/name), but I don't see how this is accomplished within a label. Am I missing something? Is this something that could be added? Thanks.
You can not sort tasks within a filter or label. Only within projects and on the date based view (though limited) is that possible. It is possible we will add sorting options to this in the future.
Thanks for the response. I think that would be a very helpful feature.
I've been a ToDoist user for a few years now. This issue has come up many times for us - and from the looks of this list it's not just us. This feature has been requested many times over the years and the response has always been a "thank you for the suggestion" but nothing more. It's time to put development of label sorting on YOUR ToDoist list.
I also use filters as Mikael Asp Somkane suggested to create lists of tasks sorted by label. I would point out that this is a WORK AROUND, and the limit on length of filters means I this work around is limited.
Would love to see the ability to group a list (ANY list) by label.
Yes Please keeping labels sorted would be very helpful. Especially in the business module, allowing multiple users to have global set of labels, so I don't have to enter 25 or more labels for each person, and then try to keep them in sync.
+1 Some sort of folder or sub-label system would also be helpful. I like to synch this with my labels in Gmail as well.
BTW, Alphabetical order would be nice but manual drag-and drop would be optimal.
I would like to be able to sort my labels from A to Z, please.
BIG Plus one on this!! Having it auto-sort by number has driven me crazy since day 1!
Agree with alex, quantity doesn't mean priority for me as well :-)
I can understand that a programer(s) making an application has a vision of how the whole thing should work. In some areas and at some point in development he won't bother what people think.
When the product starts living and attracting people the interaction begins, and people will change things or ad functionality.
The programer(s) can stick to the hardcore vision (that the users don't need to tag that much so why should we let them _sort_ 'em??)
Just the idea of making Todoist available an all platforms shows in the end a desire to please different users.
My question is why on Earth not fixing it?
People want it.
If you guys spent half of the time we've spent here discussing and nagging - on programming the s--t, it would've been done by now.
Yes I agree, which is why we are testing GQueues along side ToDoist. The color coding is better, you can force alphabetical sorting of tags, Add tags on the fly (so can ToDoist add on the fly it just makes you think it won't). The GQ search queries don't require me to be a programmer. for example if I want all tasks with tag/label billable it took 30 seconds, vs about 20 minutes on TD with the ":all: @Billable", which isn't right because I cant remember how I did it, but you get the idea.
We can have multiple categories, private and shared Q's. Better commenting is in the works, and the apps are easier on the eyes.
Pricing is about the same with GQ a bit less, but not material. So far the staff likes GQueues better and we have a simple work around for the comments on shared tasks, with a link to a google drive diary document.
I like both web apps, but the GQ app on my phone or tablet is much easier to read and use. I think its a great alternative and the developer is responsive. Give it a try. We have tested Wrike, Insightly, IQTell, Wunderlist and probably 8-10 other. So far GQueues and ToDoist are our top 2. I like them both so far, but the color coding is pushing me towards GQueues..
Thank you Hunter, but GQueue is an online-only app, which is why I moved to Todoist from Asana in the first place...
Otherwise, it really looks great and I've just seen the "in action" videos.
Todoist has at least this half-fake offline mode if I'm using Chrome where it stays and works within the browser's cache even when I'm offline.
My problem is that I'm travelling a lot to the countries where WIFI is either very expencive or non existing, not to mention the roaming in 3G that might cost a fortune.
I agree implicitly with Everyone, Hunter & Dragan specifically. The inability to have certain user set parameters really makes it tough to love this app 100%. The capability of sorting the labels in any order, as well as grouping or stacking them is a must for any task mgt software.
It was well said above that with 12/13 diff platforms, you are trying to cater to all users, and frankly we don't all have the same needs. Those if us who use the program for business & personal need the ability to organize and group our "stuff" the way that is logical & makes sense for our particular line of work. Task management is not a cookie cutter concept, so it's imperative to give us more flexibility. This is definitely something that's been requested a lot, so please - listen to your users - and I'm sure you'd see a great influx if new & REFERRED ;-D business!! Thank you
I'm new to Todoist, but I haven't found any task management software that didn't require some workarounds to make it work for me.
Unless there is a limitation on user-defined filters, it appears that the solution to being able to sort labels is to create a filter for each label--and then sorting the filters. I've had to jump through much bigger hoops to make a piece of software work for me.
Best regards, Jerry
Good that you pinted out "referred" because een with this issue about label sorting, I could still hook one more person to buy Premium, just tobe able to collaborate on a project. It has however come up that it would be great to sort the labels when we'reworking on project contexts and whatever other label groupings we might have.
Jerry, you're absolutelly right, and the Todoist is an app that I needed the least workarounds for. It's just that, when absolutelly everything else works great (ehm, a slight reservation for the sync hickups this spring..) and I have been able to taylor TD so fine, then _this_ little thing with labels can jump up as a bigger problem than it really is.
It's nice, however, that your comment brought back some milder attitude, I have a feeling that we were quite harsh at moments.. sorry about that ;-)
We're just eager..
Just hoping that the voice of users here in this thread is not being left unnoticed by the developer. Inability of labels sorting and grouping truly is a shortcoming of Todoist and should be taken care of soon given the number of people asking for it. Can't wait!
Definitely +1. Look at the number and the frequency of the votes in this thread!
This is a must have, especially if you want to attract GTD afficionados. I've started my trial but bumped on this (undocumented) issue, I'll regret having to switch to another product if it's not solved soon. Thanks!
Sorting by the amount of tasks within a label is a nice default behavior, but I would also like pick sort method so that I can sort them manually.
@Thomas Jensen +1
It would be already quite sufficient if you could sort it alphabetically instead of the number of assigned tasks.
- sorting the labels in any order (manually and pre-set sorting systems e.g. alphabethical / most used)
- grouping or stacking them
I love this product and am kind of disappointed that this even exists as a 7 month issue. It seems almost everyone is for sorting and most would like grouping. I'm a +1 on both and hope that Todoist recognizes the popularity of this request. The ability to sort and group is one of the basic concepts of GTD organization and GTD usability is one of the reasons I chose this product - and paid for the premium membership. I tried the suggested work-around and, as is often true of work-arounds, there are limitations, not to mention the additional effort. I prefer to spend more time actually doing the things on my to-do list.
Still more votes for this here: http://todoist.com/Support/show/28833/#comment_136538
As a new Premium account, I am disappointed to see that this long over due feature is still missing. Please add this to the top of your Todoist Development List!
really need labels sorting
+1 for a way to sort labels
+1 for sorting labels.
Going to add my name to this. The way labels simply jump around is *really* bad for productivity - you can't form a consistent workflow.
To clarify - when you have 3-7 labels, that's not a problem. As soon as you start to use labels seriously, and get 10-20, you this behaviour becomes rather challenging.
Contexts are huge to certain productivity approaches, and this really holds everything back.
@George Darroch nicely put, the lack of context sorting and grouping is a workflow killer in deed.
+1 please, I need it so much!
sort AND nest labels so that we can use the method explained in thesecretweapon.org (designed for evernote) for todoist insted
+1 for manual sorting
+1 for sorting labels alphabetically
PLEASE! Let's get this ASAP.

handle it as a christmas wish ;-)
+1 for nested labels -
I just stumbled upon thesecretweapon.org [just like Eric PREMIUM Replied on Nov 24, 2014 ]and am now looking to Evernote as my solution.
Nested tagging must be very challenging from a coding perspective, especially drag-and-drop reordering after creating the tags.
But it's also the most flexible for users, so each person can "customize" their system.
There is no 1 right way to GTD, so let people craft their own implementation based on GTD *principles*
+1 for manual sorting
+1 for sorting labels alphabetically
I have not seen any reply from staff lately on this one. This seems to be a popular one. Is it falling anywhere in your plans?
I kind of vote for this every couple of months, latest was on September 24th.
New vote as of today, can we get a New Year present please?
Why don't you guys make a new year's resolution hehe?
Oh well, I've lost my hopes anyway...
Btw Happy New Year y'all!
"+1 for manual sorting
+1 for sorting labels alphabetically "
A very usefull (important ?) feature...
+1 for manual sorting, but if it could be done through a settings option so that we can also toggle to the current method of sort by size, that would be great. I came looking for manual, but now that I understand the current set up, I'm intrigued by the way I could use that.
Alpha is less critical for me, although I see the benefit there too. I do a lot of manual alphabetizing of subprojects....
Keep up the great work! :-)
+1 for sorting alphabetically. The information architecture of sorting by number/count is very poor in my opinion. It's a pretty useless metric for trying to actually find a label. Might make sense to machines, not to humans. Please add this option soon.
Along with many others I keep waiting for better/more options for sorting labels. The current way is really ridiculus. If I add a certain label to series of tasks, for every task I have to search again through the list of labels, because the label continues to move "up" the list for every task I add it to.
I also notice that for the last half year no staff member has responded to this list. Is this request still being seen at all by the developer?
+1 S.Gobets — I'm still mourning the loss of the 'Vote-box'. I think the writing was on the wall when they decided to bin that. They seem to want to make it difficult to see/find top feature requests. Easier to ignore in this format.
+1 to Ben & S.Gobets
I am affraid there is going to be a Todoist app for smart TVs before this feature is implemented :)
The amount of comments here (and there are different threads asking for this as well) speaks for itself.
+1 for sorting and nesting. Though, would be very happy with just sorting! :)
How many +1 must be added until todoist is understanding, that this is a BIG MUST feature an is implementing ASAP?
Some customer-oriented behavements are hard to understand...
+1 as well. I really like Todoist overall (and believe me I have tried more task solutions that I care to admit) but the lack of sorting options for labels - along with the already requested ability to easily convert a task to a project - are killer misses.
+1 for sorting labels
+1 for nesting labels
Just get it done already... or admit you don't care about your users...
+1 The possibility to have both ways:
- dynamic sorting according to number of tasks
- fixed alphabetical sorting
+1. I am overall very excited about todoist. Just dove in and got premium membership. However I was surprised that I couldn't sort labels. Even having them alphabetically would be a huge improvement over current sorting. This dramatically limits what I can accomplish using labels.
+1, would be great to be able to sort and nest labels
+1 for manual sorting
+1 for sorting labels alphabetically

+1 for some kind of response. Is there a Todoist 3.0 in the works?
Unfortunately, we don't have any updates reg. this feature, but we'll consider adding it in future updates.
The good news is that somebody seems to be alive from the staff and reads this page. (Been doubting that for a while)
The bad thing, of course, is that the answer means that it has no priority at all for the developer, as they don't even want to promise that it will some day be added to an update, despite the fact that many many users are waiting for this flaw in Todoist to be corrected!
I would love to be able to nest as well. That´s how I organize evernote for example.
Ok, this is quite a downer for not only the hard core users but simply to anyone with a more complex system of tagging/labelling/filtering or whatever, voicing their hopes in this thread (and those similar to this topic)... I understand that Todoist is now in that dangerous phase of scaling up, harvesting more users and pleasing the investors. But guys, don't forget about the good practice of listenning to your users. What about putting up the votebox for features most wanted? I could live with the fact that there are features more people want, I could accept being defeated in the contest of voting by quantity, I could happily go for my priorities in the next iteration and lose again as it is better than getting an answer like this. You seriously might consider it? You might? Have you looked around that there is a competition outside? That there is a community of people willing to share their best practice, inspiring others with their gtd systems and different approaches and you MIGHT BE THE TOOL?
It is a big flipping disappointment after many months of keeping this thread alive just to get an answer like this. Nothing agains you guys in charge of this MERE forum voicing MERE opinions of your most dedicated users. Just let your superiors know, if you have the chance, that there MIGHT be a great opportunity missed here.
Sorry for double posting, I am on mobile, as many others are ;)
Agreed that it is unfortunate. There is a lot to like about Todoist not the least of which is the broad multi-platform usage options and the uncluttered UI. I have to say however that although it was those two benefits that first brought me to Todoist, the lack of some what I would call basic elements (label sorting/nesting and ability to easily convert a task to a project high among them) has moved be back to OmniFocus as my primary task management system. For now at least. Whether TD can bring me back will depend on responsiveness to user needs and enhancements.
What i love about Todoist is, that you are able to nest Projects & Folders. This feature is uncommon in alot of applications and one of the main reasons i use Todoist.
However i red alot of articles and they, as well as i, came to the conclusion, that nesting tags was in fact more consistent, than trying to solve everything with nested Projects & Folders. In the digital times where one may use search algorithms, tags are a force wich shouldn't be underestimated, because it can be used dynamically compared to Projects, which are kind of stiff.
I seriously considered going Premium, but nesting tags is so essential for me, that i will have to wait for Todoist to get this feature before i will pay for Premium.
+ 5 for nested labels - The grouping like someone mentioned by Status (Action, Waiting, Hold), Location, People, energy would be very useful from a workflow as well as visually looking at the tasks.
+1 for labels sorting, at least alphabetically
Sorting based off number of tasks is arbitrary.
Please help us an add this as a feature :)
Adding my vote for label sorting functionality.
Just signed up again for Premium after many years off on ToodleDo... the lack of ability to even have an alpha sort for labels is a deal-breaker, so I'll be asking for my 30-day money back guarantee pretty soon. This is a huge usability issue, and it's stunning to me that it remains unaddressed after so many months.
Yep, get out now. Ask for your refund before your 30 days is up. I suspect the year long subscriptions up front are a huge reason why Todoist is able to get away with such a lack of improvements around usability. It takes getting really "moved in" to the program before most people catch these horrible usability GOTCHAS - and by then it's to late for a refund.
Get out now.
And warning to anyone else still in their 30 days: GET OUT NOW.
I used Todoist as a premium member for a full year. In that year, they did not implement a single one of the commonly asked for basic usability requests. Do not expect that will change.
Oh man, i wish you had said that a few days ago. It is the 31st day for me :-( I had seen todoist recommended online and had been frustrated with a lack of batch editing on my prior todo manager Doit.im (which is actually pretty good if you're looking for a GTD workflow). I let that sub lapse and got Todoist instead and have been noticing all these problems that are just baffling to me, like the inability to sort labels. But more so than the inability to sort is the ridiculousness of sorting by number of todo's in each label. I cannot understand when this would be beneficial, nor how Todoist would assume that EVERYONE WANTS to use them that way. Also the iphone app is pitiful. Not having sub-tasks visually distinct and collapsable is frustrating. Worse, if I am viewing an item in a filter on my phone, there is NO WAY for me to jump to seeing its sub-tasks. I have to manually navigate to that project from and find that task.
Hearing that they don't address issues (which I kind of suspected based on the replies to THIS one), is really disappointing and I am starting to regret my premium membership :-(
Also WHY is there no option to quick-add a task on the phone without first navigating to a project or list.
I really wanted todoist to be great but am finding its just half-baked. its so disappointing considering some of these fixes should be EASY and QUICK.
Sorry to hear the "Gotcha's" got you to James. :( I recommend asking for your refund anyway. You're close enough they might do it. (Argue that one month IS 31days for several of them...) :)
Good news and bad news.
Good news: I was wrong! Its the 30th day!!
Bad news: I bought premium via iTunes and therefore I cannot get a refund. :-(
+1 for manual sorting
+1 for sorting, both manually and automatically, for labels
+1 for sorting, ordering and nesting labels
+1 for labels sorting
A possible workaround is to create a filtered view with syntax like this:
@Research, @Read, @Plan, @Draft, @Develop, @Office, @Meetings, @Home, @Buy, @Relax, @Errands
The order you put your labels in will be followed in the filtered view.
Works fine for me now, you can create a more sophisticated filtered views (yet there is a limit for the chain, after syncing, if it is too long, Todoist cuts it and the filter doesn't work).
(7 days | overdue) & (p1 | p2) & @Research, (7 days | overdue) & (p1 | p2) & @Read, (7 days | overdue) & (p1 | p2) & @Plan, (7 days | overdue) & (p1 | p2) & @Draft, (7 days | overdue) & (p1 | p2) & @Develop,etc...
Try for yourself.
+1 for label sorting both manually and automatically
+1 for sorting labels and filters.
It's a real shame. For me it looks like this is the straw that breaks the camel's back and I'm going with 2do instead of Todoist. Shame, I loved a lot of things about this app :-(
I think I have like 40 labels (yes, it works well for me) and my eyes are going crazy trying to find the right label to select. I just need it to be in alphabetical order.
+1 for sorting and nesting of labels.
Yes, please add a sorting option. I also want to be able to sort by label in project list view.
Won´t go premium until labels can be sorted and nested and lists can be sorted by labels. Same for filters.
+1. I hope all these things are being considered!
+1 for sorting / alphabetizing / custom order for labels; guessing the frequency of use in order to find a label when you are creating a task should require as little disruption and guessing as possible!
3 Авг 2015 г. 0:22 пользователь "Todoist Support" <
Given that this thread has been festering for 1.5 years, I've put a related but simpler ask in another thread: just create "folders" (which aren't labels) to allow me to group and organize the labels in the *view* -- without expecting them to affect the display order or allow me to query for all labels in a group. If that would satisfy your need, please go and show that request some love.
For me, it would be the single last thing to improve in order to have a perfect app.
I'm upset that this mush requested feature didn't recieve any consideration so far. It surprises me, given all the hard work Todoist put in their app.
Please, consider adding this feature in the near futur!
I am a new user and am shocked to see the lack of response to this request.
If you want to keep your users happy, please fix this asap.
Once again, at the VERY least, alphabetical labels would be an acceptable compromise. That CAN'T be difficult to change. The current method makes NO SENSE and only interferes with the user's attempt to use labels for organization. Please do not give us the typical "We will consider adding this in the future" response.
(and just to be clear, alphabetical with numbers sorted before letters would be ideal. So we can make labels such as 1_next, etc.)
Ideally, the labels should have the same characteristics as the "tags" in Evernote. Alphabetical and ability to nest.
Please make the appropriate changes.
....other than that i love the app. Keep up the good work.
I also love the app, the simplicity of the scaled down design is awesome. You can rest your eyes on that tidy UI, haha.
But I'm afraid a new kid on the block might steel the design and just implement eeeeverything we've been begging for here.
That would be a shame.
Many people were asking for these label sorting features over 2 years ago when I started using Todoist. I am amazed that this still hasn't been remedied. I am adding my requests:
1)I need to be able to FIND a label easily in order to use it. It would help tremendously to have an option to alphabetize the label list.
2)I need to be able to ASSIGN labels from an alphabetized list as well. It does me no good to know how many tasks are in a label if I cannot find it amongst hundreds of other labels.
Please and Thank you!
In our latest update, we've enabled manual reordering of labels :-)
Thanks. It works.
Thanks a lot!
Manual re-ordering is a *slight* improvement, but it's not really what's needed, which is automated re-ordering either alphabetically (currently not available) or by number of tasks carrying that label (the only option until today).
If I have 100 tags and I want to be able to quickly find one, alphabetic ordering is the natural solution. But to achieve that I now have to first do a manual sort of 100 tags (and then do more manual manipulation each time I add a new tag).
Better than nothing (and I do appreciate the step forward) but you guys can surely do better. I hope the next step forward will not take another year and a half.
Thank you! I agree that it would still be nice to choose to sort them alphabetically but this is a HUGE improvement.
Can you please pass on to the rest of the team that, while I can understand not wanting to commit to timelines that you aren't sure if you'll be able to keep, being more transparent with your loyal customers would go a long way to quelling discontent. If we had gotten an answer previously, like after the ios update came out, saying that you will be adding this feature in an upcoming update, but that you cannot give a precise timeline. This would have personally satisfied me and I would've been more actively promoting Todoist.
When asked recently about a to do app recommendation my answer was something like "Well....I use todoist, which is nice and has some good features like batch editing, but there are some features that I am surprised are missing and they apparently have no plans to fix them, and aren't terribly responsive to its customers requests."
Whereas if I had known this was in the works, I would've had a lot more positive things to say. Just something to consider.
Agree with James Irving's comment re transparency about what's in development. I also experienced significant reduction in my initial enthusiasm about Todoist because it *appeared* that user requests and feedback were being mostly ignored.
Better communication about what's in the works (or even about *why* you've decided not to implement certain features or delay them, whatever) would go a long way to customer satisfaction and be good for you business.
Any news about a Mac update? I just checked. The label problem is still there.
It should be now possible to order labels manually. What is your Mac app version?
Version 6.1.1 (335), Galina.
my todoist app (mac desktop) had the "handle bars" for dragging the tags around -- this is in the right direction and has been helpful. It does seem odd that there isn't an alpha sort vs frequency sort vs custom sort option for this, but I can now get this working the way I want with some fuss. Thanks for doing this!
Could you please let us know if you still can't manually drag and drop labels?
Is your gear icon at the top green?
EDIT: I closed and opened the app again. Labels is working jus fine!
Great! Thanks for letting us know :-)
While it's definitely something, I agree with Russ Charif. Still would like it to alphabetize. I'm trying to understand why the default is sorting by the highest number of items in the label. I'm sure everyone uses labels differently and there's probably a good reason for that but whatever it might be, I don't quite understand. I use labels for almost everything. I don't use priority or projects. I literally label it all with @urgent, @important, @nameofstaffmember, @car, @home, etc. Yes, maybe strange but I literally just use labels to prioritize everything. I love this label system and the simplicity of todoist. But I don't love that it doesn't alphabetize labels. (yes I also do use filters but sometimes I need to find specific labels quickly so I end up just searching for the label name which is a decent "workaround")
I guess I'll just alphabetize manually but I just can't quite understand the sorting by qty thing. Either way, appreciate the improvement.
Very happy with this update. I understand why people might want more, but really appreciate the work you're putting in. Thanks.
Is the DB layout such that you can query for labels using a secondary index, but that the particular DB can't sort lexicographically on an arbitrary attribute?
What about nesting labels? Does it work now? I am not Premium, so i can´t test it myself.
@Ben - technically, labels are stored as numbers with their name being a parameter of such object.
@Alexander - Nesting labels is still not possible, unfortunately.
Previously, the label view was ordered by count descending. This thread seems to be about alternative options. I found the label-task-association count useful but found today, that it's no longer working.
Labels are not listed in random order.
Has this functionality regressed?
Yes, currently labels can be in any order. You can drag and drop them manually (+1)
That's not an acceptable reply Galina.
This used to work AUTOMATICALLY, as evidenced in TD's own video:
Why would I go back an manually reorder 100s of labels?
Can you confirm that this has regressed?
I am sorry about that. Yes, I can confirm, that is has been changed in the latest version. Now newly added labels go to the bottom of the list.
Thanks, OK, we users have to work around that.
A shame TD is going backwards sometimes while most updates are normally
Since (we) users are usually creative individuals with often different ways to do same things, why not providing us with a choice?
Make it a new menu in the Todoist Settings and provide us with options of sorting alphabetically or manually.
Filters could also get this option.
+1 on label sorting
click = A → Z
click again = Z → A
Drag to place if desired. Click sort will kill dragged order.
Excellent suggestion, now if we also get the lable nesting then your system could apply to whatever label "folders" we've created.
That would be a nuclear success within the TD community....
+1 Rob Labatt and +1 Dragan Ruzic-
Maybe create/remember manual/last sorting.
Problem solved. Just like that.
