THANKS!! I never thought of that. That's a really good idea. I use Evernote for my soap recipes, too. Someone on this forum posted a great how-to on Evernote and that's what got me started using it. Now I keep better notes on soap and update them, too. I have it on my phone, my iPad and my computer(s). I'm actually thinking of upgrading from the free edition to the one where you can upload up to 10 GB per month. I've been videoing my last couple of soap batches and that seems to help me keep better notes, too. Plus, I'm funny as heck. (I took a sip of a cup of coffee I made and you hear in the video: "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, that is soooooo good!" I am not editing that out!)

Poking around a bit, it looks like you can create your own folders. Then move threads from the subscribed folder to those folders.
My Account > Subscribed Threads > Edit Folders
Thank you! I looked at this and did exactly that. After I created my "favorites" folder, I tried moving some threads to it and couldn't do that. What I did was went to one of my favorite threads and unsubscribed to it then re-subscribed to it. When I subscribed to it, it gave me the "folders" option. It was prepopulated with "subscriptions" and had a pull down menu. My favorites folder was an option, so I put it in there.
Now I've got to figure out how to find the folder easily without going to the subscriptions then changing the folder name. Although, that isn't difficult at all.
ETA: I changed my "favorites" folder to "fun stuff" and added a "sciency stuff" folder. This is a huge help. Thank you so much for playing on the forum and solving my dilemma!!
