As a selectable thing under one's Preferences > Your Notebook.ai design : an option to Always Expand All Categories. I appreciate that the way it's currently done saves screen space, and it's a good way to limit/focus oneself when worldbuilding. But when I use the pages as a reference, I don't want to have to click so much to add/read information, so I'm frequently clicking "Expand All Categories", and it's getting a bit tiresome.

@Kunama Good news on that front: one of the bigger changes in the new design (coming someday) is that all categories are always expanded by default (and the sidebar just jumps you to whichever section you click) for exactly that reason. Hopefully that'll help! :)

@binaryfyre

I asked this a couple of years back and maybe it got lost in the backlog. However, in the Writing section, with Document folders. There is no way to delete a folder, nor is there a way to move a document from one folder to another. This is super basic functionality. I see all kinds of talk on AI features, visual features but it would be crucial if I could just manage my document organization intuitively.

Can we pls get a user story or two at the top of the backlog?

As an end user, I need to be able to delete folders, so that I can stay organized.
As an end user, I need to be able to move documents from one folder to another, so that I can stay organized.
As an end user, I need to be able to rename my folders and subfolders, so that I can stay organized.

Like, if I don't see this as functionality in production by my annual billing renewal - I'll just move to a different platform (rebuild in OneNote, Notion.so, or the like).

Hey there, sorry about the confusing UI on this. I admit it's pretty clunky and it's something I'm hoping to tackle in a larger update that addresses a lot of front-end design decisions around the site, but here's how to move documents from one folder to another, delete folders, and rename folders/subfolders:

Moving documents from one folder to another

To edit a document's folder, you can click on the document in your documents list to bring up its info box. For example, clicking this row:

That brings up the info box for updating document metadata. From this box, you'll see the folder it's currently in – and be able to select any other folder from the dropdown to move it to.

Renaming/deleting folders

Folders have a similar metadata box, but are accessed slightly differently: to rename a folder (or delete it), you'll just open the folder and click the large icon in the top-left.

From here, you can rename your folder (type a new name and click Update this folder), delete your folder (click the red Delete this folder link), or move your folder (or subfolder) into other folders the same way you would move a document between folders.

Again, sorry about the confusing UI on this. The design is on the to-do list to improve, but maybe there are some smaller tweaks I can make to make things a bit clearer in the meantime before making larger changes. I believe the functionality you're looking for should be there and is ready for you to use! If there's any other functionality you'd like from documents/folders, I'd love to hear more feedback and get it added in an update, also! :)

@Neepnap-the-Fat-cat

I don't know if I'm asking too much but…

Can we extend the free universes from 5 to 10 because some people here are broke and have too much imagination to put down on Notebook.ai, like me. ;-;

Thank you if you read this. :)
