Per folder sort settings?

While I want my sort settings for most folders to be by modification date, for the Daily Journal folder I would like items filed by filename. This keeps the journal entries in chronological order. Wondering if it would be possible to have this folders sort different from the other folders?

A template per folder (none by default) would be nice too!

I wonder if we could make some folder special to have that, like the current attachments folder, having a special “journal” folder might work for that case

I 100% agree. I haven’t entirely moved to Markdown yet, but I definitely need some way to manually sort notes, or at least have different options.

With Alphabetical sort (A - Z), I think I expected 2020-06 to appear above 2020-06-01, and Lorem above Lorem – Ipsum, but they don’t. I’d like to be able to change that, and also sort by date created as well as modified. EDIT: not sure when this changed but A-Z sorted files are now appearing how I originally expected.

I too would like to see this implemented or at least commented on by the Devs.
