Is this possible? I tried creating a folder, but when I reopen Accordance it appears as a paper and I can't move papers out of their category in the Library. I'm going to want to start sorting these soon, I think.

I ran into the same issue this evening. And I agree, the ability to organize Papers is a necessary feature to make them truly useful in the long run. I don't even want to begin using Papers in my daily work, unless there's a way to organize them in folders. It will get messy too fast. Ideally, I would like to create between 3 and 10 timestamped papers every day, and organize them in folders by month and year.


Or even better, each paper would have the ability to input user metadata, so I could easily sort them by date, title, subject, keyword, etc., according to the specific need. Perhaps the Accordance default could be to organize them by date of the last modification?


Also, is there a way to perform searches on my Papers? I don't see Papers as a category in the Research bar. That would be a WONDERFUL feature! Maybe it's there, but I just don't see it...
