Package Sorting
« on: December 13, 2001, 01:00:33 pm »
I have hundreds of requirement entities in a package and they are out of sequence.  Sort doesn't seem to do anything (for any package).  What does sort do?  The only thing I can think of is to manually move up/down (bad enough, but with many entries, even one movement up takes seconds.  Am I missing something basic?

The Sort option was implemented prior to the new ability to manually position items in a package and had not been revisted since.  After considering the options, the menu item has been changed to 'Reset Sort Order' for current package.  This will remove the manual positioning in a package and resort everything into alphabetic order by element type.  This will be available in the next minor update (within the next 7 days) - and for registered users will be available as an interim minor build.
