PDF Export
@acadoid, Thank you so much! I've been using the app this whole semester and it's done me wonders in organization. It's definitely worth its price. I was wondering for exporting PDFs, it can currently do pages and all the keywords in a page,or the keywords in alphabetical order. I was wondering if there's a way to export just the keywords, in the page order they come in - the keywords being under a 'page 1' or 'page 2' heading is not really helpful. Thanks! I look forward to customizing my drawing tools this winter break!

@rainpaw: You can disable `group keywords by page´ in the PDF export setup in the app's export settings.

@acadoid Yes, but then the keywords would all just be in alphabetical order, rather than page order

@rainpaw: The bookmarks should be ordered by page (first the bookmarks of page 1, then the bookmarks of page 2, etc.) but not grouped by page? That is currently not possible with LectureNotes, and I am also not sure whether I understand the reasoning behind it. What would be the difference between your suggestion and the situation where bookmarks are grouped by page and all bookmark groups are open? Note that most PDF viewer allow to open all bookmark groups at once with a single click/menu selection.

@acadoid The pictures I sent you were in Google Chrome's PDF viewer, but I downloaded and installed Adobe Acrobat DC and get the same result. The thing is, even the pages that don't have any keywords attached to them act as bookmarks themselves, and the pages with keywords in them act as groups. So even if I expand all the groups (which I can't find an option for, but can do manually, say), I still have all Page1, Page 2, Page 3 ... etc. as bookmarks in between each group/page that does have bookmarks.

@rainpaw: I am not sure whether I understand what arrangement you have in mind. Let's discuss a specific example, let's say page 1 has keywords `first´ and `second´, page 2 has no keywords, page 3 has keyword `alpha´. LectureNotes allows for arrangements
Code:
page 1
  first
  second
page 2
page 3
  alpha
and
Code:
keywords
  alpha
  first
  second
Which arrangement do you have in mind?

Since it is easy to navigate pages of a PDF by its page, to reserve the bookmarks for the keywords, like:

Code:
first
second
alpha

@rainpaw: Would
Code:
keywords
  first
  second
  alpha
(one group `keywords´ and not sorted) also be OK? That would be much easier to implement (just skip sorting the keywords).

Yes, I kind of guessed because of the way the sorted ones went, but yes, to me, that would be much more helpful and easy to use/navigate! The extra pages get in the way imo

@rainpaw: I uploaded v2.6.18 into the app stores which allows to disable sorting the keywords.
