    I have 172 articles shown in "My Account".  When I am looking for a specific article, it is often quite a nightmare to find it.  I know there are filters, but I still think it would be helpful and time-saving if one of the filters was simply "Alphabetical Order" and another "Subject Matter".

    To my mind, the most appropriate way of searching any index is to look for alphabetical listing, like you would in any text book or encyclopaedia. Having to read through a list of 172 articles to find a less active or popular one is just crazy stuff. And often as not, when skimming, I miss it the first time round, and have to go through the list more slowly a second time.

      On the stats screen, if you click the "title" button, above the column of titles, it will re-sort the page alphabetically  Click it again and it will sort in the opposite direction.  Or you can click any of the other headings, too - I find the "changed" to be useful.

        Thanks for that tip. It looks like an excellent way to find out what needs to be edited without searching through everything.

        Thanks so much for that illuminating information - I've been on HubPages for years and not known that. I tried it and can see it's going to save me hous of frustration.

      If you go to the "find" item a box comes up on your screen.  Type in the keyword from any article you're looking for and any article with that word in the title will show up in your list colored either in yellow or orange.  I use Chrome, so I go to the three dots in the upper right hand corner of my screen, clickon them, search "find", click on it...and that's it!

      Press Ctrl and F. Type in the title. The page will jump straight to the article you're looking for. smile

    I have almost 300 articles so I have this problem too. Alphabetical would not help. It might help you to use the control-F function on your keyboard.
    Go to your article page.
    Hold down cntl and F at the same time.
    When you see the box at the bottom of the screen enter the first word you are looking for in the title. For instance, in your hub about visiting London, type in L-O-N-D-O-N

      I tried holding down Crtl and F1, F2 or F3 (there is no simple F on my keyboard) and nothing happened.  I would add that I have never been able to use the F buttons for anything. I probably need to attend computer classes for ageing idiots!

        Oh, sorry, it is the regular F, between the D and G keys. (I forgot about those other F keys at the top of the keyboard since I never use them either!)

        If there's no F on your keyboard, how do you type the letter F?

          Good question. I didn't mean the QUERTY keyboard, which I learned 50 years ago, I meant the top line of my computer!
