I’m pretty happy with the current sort system. Especially I like that SN remembers the sorting options for specific card in Sidebar.
But I still think one important option is missed: there is no way show the parent cards together with all their children recursively.
Here is an example. I’m collecting quotes from books that I have read:
Reading Author1 Book1 Quote1 Quote2 Quote3 Book2 Quote1 Quote2 Quote3 Author2 Book1 Quote1 Quote2 Quote3 Book2 Quote1 Quote2 Quote3 etc
In current sorting implementation if I open Author1 card I’ll see only two cards: Book1 and Book2. But there are times when you need to look at all the containing cards recursively (in this example: including all the quotes cards, that relate to Author1).
So, I suggest to add a checkbox
Show children cards near the sorting options to show/hide the children.
What do you think? Without this option you can not view all the related cards from the ‘bird view’.
