    Organizer View. The organizer view allows you to organize your entries into hierarchical folders. If no folder is selected, new entries are placed in the "Unfiled Entries" folder. The Unfiled Entries folder is a special folder which cannot be deleted, and which can contain no other folders. Folders can be dragged and dropped between folders, and can be exported easily by dragging the folders to the Finder. Selected folders can also be exported by selecting the "Export Folders..." menu item in the "Folder" menu, or by using the Command-Shift-S keyboard combination.

    Entry List View. The entry list view shows you the entries contained within the currently selected folders (if the organizer view is selected), or within the currently selected date (if the calendar view is selected). Like the organizer view, entries can be dragged and dropped on Folders in the organizer view, or exported to the Finder via drag and drop. Selected entries can also be exported by selecting the "Export Entries..." menu item in the "Entry" menu, or by using the Command-Option-S keyboard combination.
