Starred list redesign is worse than the previous one, but it just needs adjustments

    I agree. The list order now changes dynamically and it is confusing for me. Previously I knew the order of the list by heart and so I could click on an item I wanted to go to very fast (muscle memory).

    I'm very happy with the ability to search through the list (and my entire account).  It allows me to have more starred pages then before since I can filter them, and it lets me jump between lists no matter where they are in the hierarchy.  It might make sense to change where and how it gets rendered depending on if you click the Star icon vs. accessing it via the keyboard shortcut.

    After gathering lots of feedback, we decided to try out a compromise. If you click the Star button with a mouse, it will open the old pull-down menu in alphabetical order. If you use the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl K or Ctrl Semi-Colon), it will bring up the new dynamic menu. Try it out in beta.workflowy.com and let us know if that solution works for you.

    Great, this compromise is now live.
