Sub-notebooks in Android


Sry if my question is stupid, but I couldn’t find a way to create sub-notebooks with the Android app.
I can see the sub-notebooks created with the Mac app (drag&drop) but this doesn’t work on Android.
So how it is possible?


Unfortunately it’s not possible on mobile. I hope it will be implemented in the future, but I don’t know. Maybe @laurent has an answer for you.

Thx for clarification.
Perhaps I take a look into the code myself :slight_smile:

I made a fork and created a branch. Here you have a new option “Move notebook” (next to “Delete notebook”), when a notebook is selected.
It is realized with an own screen. I had a look how moving notes between notebooks is realized, but code is a little bit strange and much refactoring is needed to accomplish it in this way with good code.


But I read, currently no pull requests are accepted (
I know that my solution is not perfect and has limitations:

  • no translation (no guide, how to do this)
  • copy & paste, because I’m not skilled in react and react-native

Do I have to wait before my solution can be discussed and accepted?

The issue you referenced has been closed already. I suggest you just open a PR and I’m sure @laurent will comment on your code and you can go from there.

Thx for the hint. In the help file for contributing (joplin/ at master · laurent22/joplin · GitHub) is this issue still referenced.

I'm giving the PR a chance :smile_cat:
