PK Tip: Creating Special Keywords

In Personal Knowbase, your keyword Index list is generally sorted alphabetically. But you might have special keywords that you use frequently and want to be able to access instantly.

To force a special or frequently-used keyword to the top of the Index list, start the keyword with a non-alphanumeric character or punctuation mark such as "*" or "+" or ".". These characters will sort to the top of the keyword lists. Keywords starting with numbers will also sort above alphabetic characters but below those starting with non-alphanumeric characters.

For example, I have an article dedicated to each of my ongoing projects. To each, I assign the keyword *project list, so that I can access the entire list of projects quickly. I also have a keyword *to print to flag articles that need to be printed.
