Yes.
 
 
Use the Slang extension (free), and auto-sort by the date column.
 
 
[Right click on column header,  select persistent sort & choose option (up/down/off)]

I did find this site, not sure if it is dangerous.  Also wondering if any version of Ecco works in Windows 11?

I purchased a license several years ago, but my old computer died and I really want to re-install Ecco ... and am concerned about spamware sites.  Is there any malware-free legitimate download site?

For years I have been adding items to a folder and they remain in the same position where I put them. For several days now when I leave the folder and come back, I find the new items moved to the top of the item list. I want them to remain where I had put them. What can I do to turn off this behavior?  
 
I use the Scratch Notepad to open my folders. There are no additional columns used nor did I use the sort function. If I sort the view then Scratch always sorts from then on. How do I turn off sorting in the Scratch folder?

When I perform a search, see attached, I'd like the results to be automatically sorted by date.  Can this be done?

If you delete an item from a folder,  it removes the item from that folder only,  not from the file.  Only deleting an item entirely will remove it from a file.

Someone asked:

Using Slang Extension version of Ecco.  Calendar entry increases items count.  Deleting Calendar entry does not decrease item count.

Have to watch my item count.  Currently eccoMAGIC MEMORY REPORT SHOWS:

21.502 ITEMS* /  3.839 VIEW LINES / 11,789 POINTERS:  (44,025 FREE)

USED THE EM-ADT tool on .eco file that had 64,000 Items.   Couldn't get items count down even with CTL Y delete on my 2,000 item count phone book.  It deleted the entries from Phone Book but not reduce item count.

Somehow I made a backup file that came up with the 21,502 Items so I am good to go, but concerned about future item count if deleting entries doesn't reduce item count.

 
 
Marking an item and pressing DELETE key (no control or Y necessary),  should bring up 'delete items entirely from file (all views)' prompt.    Did it do that ?
