Does anyone know of a note-taking/organizing program that allows manual ordering of notes within a group or folder?

Most programs offer the options of sorting by creation date, by edit date, or by title (alphabetically), but don't allow true ordering capability.

A simple example - I have a group of notes titled WEEKLY, and there are 7 notes in that group - Sunday, Monday, etc.

What note program actually allows you to ORGANIZE your notes?

But I cannot arrange them in order - I'm locked into sorting options that don't apply.

You can do this with DEVONnote (and DEVONthink). Go > menu bar > view > sort > and choose “unsorted” and then you can arrange your folders/groups as well as your files manually.
Please note that you have to choose “unsorted” for the group structure and for the file window, if you want to have both areas unsorted.

GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY...

Oldmiller, you have just shifted my paradigm in a very positive way. I can't THANK YOU enough!

How long has Devon offered that functionality???

At least since 2004. :-)

I like the features of devonthink and but the display of text is a deal breaker for me. With the vast array of prefs it's maddening that there is no option for default margin control in notes. Text is always jammed up against the top and sides of the text area. It looks sloppy and difficult to read and is a scar on an otherwise refined interface. Fix this and I'll buy it.

This is a pretty good product, but take a look at SOHO Notes as well, which has an astounding range of functionality.

I've had SOHO Notes for a couple of years now. Have NoteLife too on my iPhone and iPad.

I've always found it clunky, so I didn't use it much. I just plain don't like using it.

Which is why I'm here trying Devon. So far I like it much more, although I will wait until a later time after considerable use before I write a review.

"Clunky" is of course a subjective view. I have to say that I don't find SOHO Notes at all clunky - to me the UI is rather clean and user friendly.

I did check out DevonNote but the deal-breaker for me was the very limited range of note types it supports. The major shortcoming here is the lack of Forms which I use extensively for passwords, credit card details, etc, all protected by encryption.

The fact that SOHONotes supports this alongside every other type of note imaginable, including rich text with a pretty decent WP mode means that I find it far more flexible and much better value than DevonNote.

Because no-one wants to use more than one Notes application I think it is important for most people that the one they use supports all the note types they might require, and DevonNote just doesn't cut it here.

Nick, you obviously have not looked closely at Devon Note.

Otherwise you would not have posted that reply.

Well I have looked at the product and I also studied the help text quite extensively. But I was unable to find any way to create a form. For example, let's say I want a simple form with fields for User ID and password - how do I create this and have it default to be encrypted?

I can do this with SOHONotes but I could not see any way to do this with DevonNote. Please give a more detailed reply that describes how you can create the tpe of form I describe.

I use Soho Notes since some years and it's a good product 'for me'...
but now, I have to say 'it was' ...
Since the end of Mobile Me, synchronization between multiple computers is not possible anymore
(it's always ok via wifi for iPod/iPad/iPhone).
And Chronos seems to be 'out' in the development of an alternative :-(

There is nothing like the Devon products. In the years they've been out, nothing's even approached them. They are constantly under active development by a terrific team of people.

I can't explain it well .... the range of features, the capabilities of the apps themselves ... but you can try them and see for yourself!

DevonNote 1.7 generally works well (new features are nice), but seems to have something of a bug -- freezes after folders/files are deleted, and deletes only show up after quit-and-reopen.

According to Devon's Forum for DevonNote, Version 1.7 requires Panther for proper working; then why did its download notice on MacUpdate indicate that OSX 10.2.7 is fine with it?

This is an excellent product. I originally used Sticky Brain, but the recent update left me looking for a better application. I've found DEVONnote to be a perfect replacement. The transition, though not automatic, was fairly simple for my small archive.

It's flexible trial period gave me more then enough time to realize it was worth the purchase price. I find myself using it a few times a day. It's folder structure makes it simple to categorize my notes, while it's quick search makes it easy enough for me to find things when I don't have time to sort.

There are a ton of features and the with this recent update, the developers seem committed to making this product even better.

It's too bad this came out after DevonThink, which I bought, because DevonThink has many features I don't use at all. I mainly use it to organize text snippets for my writing, nothing fancy, and that's just exactly what DevonNote does. I might buy it just to salute the tailored fit. That and the VASTLY superior icon. Yes, I am that picky.

Just thought I would note that I did go ahead and buy the program. This is a lean application that is nothing more than it needs to be. There are a lot of goofy interfaces for this sort of application. DEVONnote gets it just right.

I mostly use the regular DevonThink application. DevonNote is a "lightweight" version of DT. Like DT it is a well written application that is suitable for many users who need a simpler scrapbook manager type program. I do feel bad for all the developers of the low-end scrapbook management/notepad type programs because the King (jr) has just moved into their turf.
