Start Page not functional in Mac- or Windows-App

Hello together,

it seems that with a free account or with a personal pro account it is not possible to set a page as start page. It always shows the last page used.

Neither in the Windows app nor in the Mac app it works although there is this option under settings.

I would appreciate a tip

This is really a silly monetization. Let's encourage users to pay by making the app a PIA

That is correct, Notion changed to latest page used. You can use quick keyboard shortcuts to target your pages in sort order.

For example in macOS use "command + 1" and Notion goes to the top page in your sidebar, starting with favorites and if those are empty, it goes to the workspace pages.

Continue with 2 and 3 also using command. That is the quickest way to go directly to the top pages you want.
