Sort Components

#1 Post by fluxanode » 17 Oct 2019, 14:01

Is there some way to auto sort the components listed on the left side under the components tools column alphabetically?
Same question for PCB layout where the components are listed on the left onder filter off.
Also for patterns in the pattern edit and components in the component editor.

Other than manually moving them around?

Only for custom libraries. Here's how...

In the Pattern Editor select/highlight the desired library (left side of screen), click on the Library Tools panel, choose Sort Patterns in "[highlighted/selected library]" Library in the fly-out menu and resave the library (Ctrl + S). Repeat for the remaining custom pattern libraries.

In the Component Editor select/highlight the desired library (left side of screen), click on the Library Tools panel, choose Sort Components in "[highlighted/selected library]" Library in the fly-out menu and resave the library (Ctrl + S). Repeat for the remaining custom component libraries.

The custom library lists in the Schematic Editor and the PCB Layout editor should automatically reflect the changes.
