What issue do you have?

Hi there,

As viewer can see in below earlier Joplin forum thread, I have 427 folders in my Joplin the app, so, I would like to know if there is an easy way to search and locate certain folder in my Joplin the app?

Presently, I have to:

  1. Placing a keyword in search box to let the note show
  2. click on the note so that Joplin system will pop the folder in my sight on the notebook listing panel.

so that I can get what I am looking for, that is to say, I need to happen to remember the name title of a note in certain folder..., I would say that this part of Joplin UI and UX should not be the best to most average users if they have more folders than a few. I hope someone who knows can help.

Goto Anything?

In the desktop application, press Ctrl+P or Cmd+P and type a note title or part of its content to jump to it. Or type # followed by a tag name, or @ followed by a notebook name.
