Unfortunately, Notetab is lacking good tools to manage one's favorites.
However, there are some workarounds.
Your "Favorites" are kept in the sub-folder "\Favorites" in a plain text
file which you can manually edit, sort, create, etc. Each category in
Favorites | Categories corresponds to an identically named file in
this sub-folder. You can create new Favorites categories simply by
creating a new file (but you have to restart Notetab for it to be seen).
Similarly, you can change a category name by renaming the file.
So the workaround is to use Notetab to manually edit these files
and reorganize them as you would like them. One caveat: although
you can optionally suppress the file path from the favorites display,
[View | Options | General | Full Names in Favorites]
the full path will always be retained in the disk file so a simple sort
will actually sort on the path name first.
If your Favorites list is quite large, I would suggest dividing it up
into various categories. Note that these categories do not need to
be disjoint: Since they are just lines of text, an entry can appear
in as many categories as you desire. Also be aware that a Favorites
entry may be a folder not only a file. So I would recommend that
one of your "Favorites" be the "\Favorites" folder. Note - a little
trick you can use to speed up extracting entries into separate files:
Create a new document
Save it as new_category_name.fvr
Toggle its pasteboard setting Document | Use as Pastebaord
Open the source favorites file
Now select and copy (Cntl-C) or cut (Cntl-X) each line in the source
that you want in the new category.
Save the target file and toggle the pasteboard off
Repeat for each new category
So, all well and good except "Where is my \Favorites folder?"
Good question. The answer is "it depends"<g>. It could be in any
number of places depending on which operating system you are
using, Notetab version, your installation choices and your
command line options.
The most reliable method is to let Notetab find it using a clip
command. Copy the following clip to you clip library, save and
execute it to see where most of NoteTab's support folders are
located. If you don't know how to do this, join the NoteTab Clip
group and we'll give you help there. [This is to keep this list from
being cluttered up with clip stuff.]

^!InsertText $GetLibraryUserPath$ = ^$GetLibraryUserPath$ ^%NL%
^!InsertText $GetTmpPath$ = ^$GetTmpPath$ ^%NL%
Another way is to use the Windows search function and search for
Favorites.fvr. However, it may find more than one instance of the file
name. If so, make note of all the locations and their dates and times,
go to Notetab and make some changes to your favorites, close Notetab
and see which file was updated.
