Thanks, but I’m not super-human ☺
It is indeed a matter of how to find your information. These two are the
extremes: You create your notes in a flat structure or you go with a total
· The flat structure doesn’t work at all without tagging. But here you
are structuring again with your tags ;)
· The total hierarchy only doesn’t work in my eyes, too as you will
find yourself adding another parent and another parent as your information does
not fit into existing.
So my way is to mix both. Have a hierarchy and use tags. If an information does
not fit to my structure and I don’t see it being a general topic with more
information to come, then this
information ends up into the inbox with some tags I find useful (just to find
that information again ;) )

Subject: [Zim-wiki] Re-ordering the index / custom sorting
Personally, I would prefer instead that more emphasis would be given to search
instead of an index structure, as it is with Web Wikis. A more prominent search
box with find-as-you-type and partial results in a popover :). Then I would
hide the index and just use a flat notebook structure. I tend to prefer linking
and tags instead of hierarchies to set relationships among pages. Well, just my
almost off-topic two cents, based on my personal experience.
To the problem at hand tho: I think it would be a good compromise between
customization and simplicity to allow drag'n'drop (with some keyboard
equivalent) for reordering, but give context-menu actions to sort by some
criteria (e.g. alphabetically, by creation date, etc.). Those actions are
instant, though: they simply pass through the selected pages sorting
everything. This way you avoid maintaining different "modes", while keeping it
relatively easy for people to go either sorted or custom.

May I suggest a simple alternative, that doesn't involve embedding some special
logic or identifier or ID etc?
* Let the current alphabetical sorting remain.
* For anyone who wants to re-order, as per their preference, a key-binding
can be given. For example, in MS-Word, the key-sequence [Shift+Alt+Up] or
[Shift+Alt+Down} can rearrange paragraphs. The OpenOffice/ LibreOffice
Key-Binding is different and probably [Ctrl+Alt+Up/ Down]; I am not sure of the
latter because I always change it to [Ctrl+Up or Ctrl+Down] on all PC/ laptop I
I depend on this key-binding for its simplicity, power & convenience. Mr. Ugur
Murat's method is a little laborious, needs foresight and such disciplined
notebook looks super-human to me.
My special (earnest) request is that the key-binding (for page-promotion/
demotion) should also be applicable to paragraphs (promotion/ demotion) within
the page, and if you do that, Zim will become an exceptional text-editor. For
regular use one won't need the Word Processor, until printing the page becomes
