  • RSSOwl is great !

    have about 5000 labels (tags) with GoogleReader

    • first of all need to sort Labels alphabetically after GR sync...
      is it possible edit Labels list by, for example, Notepad++ ? manually sort Up/Down is not simple tast for 5000 labels... please help, how can sort Labels ?

    • is it possible to sort feeds folders (116 folders, 983 feeds) left panel alphabetically too ?

    thank you

  • 1.) sorry, no support other than that. one workaround, which is a little bit ugly would be to export settings (File | Export -> without feeds), then manually edit the resulting XML file and then import it (just the labels). However this will remove labels from existing news, so its to be taken with care.

    2.) If you click the little dropdown triangle on the feeds view on the left, you can check the option to sort by name. You can also sort by name when you rightclick on a folder.

     
  • 2) dropdown triangle ! this is great ! many thanks!

    1) understand, thank you... just question/suggestion... may be it is not difficult - if possible - to implement utility which will sort Labels AND keep Labels in existing news ? some kind of database management utility ?

  • RSSOwl -> Tools -> Preferences -> Labels

    can : New Edit Delete MoveUp MoveDown

    can't find how ? : sort ; merge (when Edit and already exist - why can't replace ?); find

    many thanks
