Please please please add this option. Swipe to Pin is useless but Archive would be amazing. I’ve been asking for this for years.
I’m opposite you on this. I haven’t once used archive, but I use swipe to pin throughout the day.
You can long-press a note, and without raising your finger you can swipe directly to the archive in just one movement
Hashtags are how I track things. Pins seem like an unnecessary additional crutch.
Thanks but that’s not useful for a trackpad using Mac user.
It’s not a crutch but a useful feature for me and I’m sure many others who use Bear dynamically for writing and thinking (not just a place to store stuff). I use pins to keep my dashboard always in view, for docs I’m writing that I need to return to a lot, and to keep notes at the ready for use on the watch. Having to do a search or sift through hashtags for these all day would be a real pain. Being able to override the sort order when viewing a tag group is super handy for me for the reasons stated above. For archiving, I use tags or export.
Pins are important to help me quickly access my daily log and index/dashboard note, along with other important notes that I keep pinned. I access these multiple times daily so I rather have quick access to them rather than search.
I’m a heavy trackpad user and this method works fine for me. However, if I’m being honest, I pretty much only archive stuff using the keyboard shortcut, which can be found in the menubar at
note → archive and you can remap that to whatever you want in
settings → keyboard → keyboard shortcuts….
That all said, I dunno how you’ve got your trackpad set up, but for me I’ve got three finger drag on (
settings → accessiblity → trackpad options → dragging style → three finger drag) & tap to click (
settings → trackpad), and a three finger drag works just fine exactly as @Matteo mentioned above.
One man’s crutch is another’s cudgel. That’s fine but I prefer to keep my notes permanently attached. Pinning is for others to see things and doesn’t work for the dynamic ways I use the app for composition, brainstorming, and publishing across a dozen businesses. I’m happy for it to be a setting but I don’t need a dashboard in Bear. I need to archive items to remove from the workspace.
And multifinger drag isn’t a great solution for the Mac. Archive works beautifully as a swipe option in mail apps like Spark.
Personally, I Archive notes way more often than I delete them. So having an option in the settings to Archive by swiping left rather than Delete would be ideal for me.
