The sort mechanism allows you to change the order in which samples appear in all pages and project overviews.
Version: 1.27+ (Sept 2020)
Usage: Page --> Sort across all pages, (Ctrl+T, Ctrl+R)
How to use in practice
The order of project data across all pages is set using a maximum of 3 sort levels. Sort can be accessed via the appropriate toolbar icon or Page menu, or the Ctrl-T shortcut.
The Analysis and Property search tools are used to select appropriate text or numerical properties against which the data is sorted. .Any properties can be used to sort the data from version 1.27 onward.
Chosen properties can be selected to sort into Ascending or Descending order. For a text property Ascending = alphabetical. For a numerical property Ascending = smallest value first.
Once satisfied with the sort criteria, the sort is then applied globally across all pages.
After the data is sorted a record of which properties were sorted on and in which hierarchical order is presented in the property headers of relevant properties, with the red sort order and orientation indication.
From version 1.28, it is possible to sort on a single property by right clicking on the relevant header and selecting to either sort ascending or descending on that property.
Clear Sort (Ctrl+R)
Once you have finished with your sort you can either:
- Sort on new criteria using the above method (your previous sort criteria will be remembered if the sort window was closed).
- Clear the sort (Page --> sorting across all pages... or use the toolbar shortcut icon, or Ctrl+R) returning data to the default project database order i.e. entry Row ID number.
