Altering stacking order of Classes and Saved Views

Question

Hi all, 

 

Can anyone tell me how to alter the stacking order of Classes or Saved Views? 

 

All I can find (and know how to do) is move Design or Sheet layers. 

 

Thanks!

By Default all Classes are listet by name.

But you can sort them by clicking in the Columns Header in a different way.

However just by those Columns that are already available.

Like by Visibility On/OFF.

 

But that is pretty much standard elsewhere too so I sort my Classes by proper

Naming and the use of Prefixes. Like X_***** for stuff I seldom need, to keep

it at the end of the List.

Hi Zoomer, it's you again! Okay thanks, I guess that makes sense. I've come from the SketchUp world of dragging and dropping so still getting to grips. 


Much appreciated for your comments.

Yes, "Sort by Name" is kind of the lowest compatibility Level for Exchange and such,

so I got used to my Prefix Sorting in any App.

So much that I missed it in 3D Apps, where you typically have move them around manually,

after you get them in by creation date or other useless sorting.

It would be nice if Saved Views were re-orderable in the Navigation Palette/Organization dialogue box (and the Saved View dropdown in the View Bar would match accordingly).

 

Currently I number Saved Views in order to determine their order non-alphabetically.

I don't use them that much and when I do my same Prefix Ordering.

But I could also imagine that manual Stacking may make some

sense for Saved Views.
