Things I have tried
What I’m trying to do
Hi, Im trying to set the default sorting order of notes to “Modified time (new to old)” instead of by File name (A to Z).
After changing it, it returns to filename every time I open Obsidian.
Is there a way to set it permanently to Modified time?
I don’t think there is. You might post a feature request for the file browser to remember its sort order.
If you use the custom sort plugin module, you can defined your sort order for all (or any subset of folders) to be a multitude of option, including when the file was modified.
