Supports custom ordering of files and directories

Use case or problem

I’m trying to group related notes together.

Currently the files and directories are displayed in the panel in the alphabetic order of their names. Another available option is sorting by note’s modification time. Both of which cannot fulfill the needs exactly.

Proposed solution

Like OneNote, Obsidian may consider supporting reordering the notes by users through dragging and placing. The custom orderings can be stored in obsidian’s meta data file.

Current workaround (optional)

Currently, I have to name them carefully so that they are sorted together under the alphabetic order. Or, I just have to create annoying nested folders to group them together, messing up the structure of a vault.
