Sorting Objects

Sort objects when you want to change the order in which objects appear in a structure. A sort affects the order of presentation from left to right, within each branch of a structure.

The settings you enter are valid only during the current work session. However, it is possible to save the settings for future work sessions, using the Save Options feature.

To sort objects, proceed as follows.

  1. Click on the menu options Object ® Sort objects.

    The Sort Objects dialog box appears.

  2. Enter the appropriate settings.

    For more information on the settings, see The Sort Objects Dialog Box

  3. Click on Sort.

    The system sorts all objects as directed.

  4. To exit the Sort Objects dialog box, click on Close.
