It is easy to order Google Keep Notes. All you have to do is drag and drop the note into place. Organizing lists work by using drag and drop as well.

Frustrated Edits Duplicating When Changes are Made to "Saved as" Doc...

Recently this question was asked in the Google Docs Help Forum and I see it as a good time to review using "Make a Copy". I use "File Make a Copy" to  create templates of prior docs, slides, forms, and sheets. This makes life easier then rebuilding the document from scratch. It also wipes the "Revision History" clean and disconnects the document form all parties it was shared with. When you "Make a Copy" it is like starting over but with guidelines.

Please follow the below steps for making a copy:
Open Google DocClick File Select Make a Copy Edit Title Select a Destination Folder Click OK                                                             Best, Ms. Drasby
