How does one order Favorites?

#1 Post by Schweitzerbube » 29.11.2015, 19:24

Pls forgive this like-a-newbie query, but I tried Help, and I searched Forum using "order Favorites" but didn't find the answer to my question, which is: how can I order alphabetically the items in my Favorites panel? (new ones get added below the existing ones, and of course they're not alphabetized.) Thanks in advance if you can point me in the right direction, INCLUDING if you tell me where I SHOULD have been able to find it in XE Help....

AFAIK it's not possible, at least I couldn't find it, if you mean fav. tools.

Thank you kindly for your reply, Dreamer. Turns out it wasn't Tools > Favorite Tools I was referring to, but rather the Favorites pane that appears when you click Favorites > Favorites Tree. As one adds a new Favorite, it is appended at the bottom of the list, but it would be so useful to be able to order them alphabetically.

I ought to have mentioned in my original post that I'd also tried clicking and right-clicking both on the Favorites column header and in the blank space beneath the bottom Favorite. Neither were successful.

Drag&drop?

OMG, you're absolutely right! I'd tried that, but it appeared that a folder would be moved INTO another folder (rather than being allowed to drop BETWEEN folders) so I never "dropped" it. Thanks to your suggestion, it does EXACTLY what I wanted. Thank you SO much!

I thought you know about it, that you have many items and want to sort by name.
