    OK, that makes sense. So this is what I envisage:

    run, C:\Program Files (x86)\CherryTree\bin\cherrytree.exe

    But then I don’t know how to put in that next step, which is

    +^L (i.e. Shift+CTRL+L)

    and to end the script. Any suggestions?

    There is one twist. I shutdown PC and rebooted and preference now seems to kick in.

    I have not seen Giuseppe visit this forum for some time. He might be busy developing next release.

    So that means it works on Linux, good for you if you use the feature, but it does not solve the issue for me on Windows.



    I’ll look at it when I next startup Windows 10 but there have been a number of threads recently discussing Windows wiping the shared Linux partition table during an upgrade. That is not helpful. I have to first take a backup of partition table as an insurance.

    So I can’t try AHK at this moment.

    OK Eureka, that is fine. I’ll await your next post.
    Cheers for now 🙂

    Hey Eureka, just wanted to let you know that I now have an AHK script that does exactly what you suggested 🙂 So, many thanks for suggesting for a solution that seems so obvious but that I was not able to come up with.



    Good that this basic idea worked for you.

    I take the view that we cannot expect any updates to the current generation of CherryTree and so in the interim, while we wait for Giuseppe’s development, we must engineer work arounds by using external tools such as AHK and others.

    For example scripts can be created to search through CherryTree data.

    I’m working on integrating CherryTree with other tools.

    Yes, he seems to be pretty tied up with that porting activity.
    BTW, is there a way to sort text within a node alphabetically? I have not found anything in the manual, nor in the menu. This is off-topic, so maybe I should open a new thread.



    I’m back in Windows.
    I have not had a need to sort contents of node page.
    I could not find a native process for sorting.
    But as an exercise I would extend your AHK script to
    navigate to your node page

    then using hotkey .. run these steps in AHK …
    select all text in node page
    cut content into clipboard
    apply sort text in clipboard
    paste back sorted text into node page.

    I searched and found this guide …


    Another approach would be to use python script in concert with AHK.
