    [08/2011] - Sorting parameters in the Family Types dialog box

    Applies to: - All Verticals

    New Feature / Problem:
    In the family editor, the list of parameters in the Family Types window is not sorted.

    Why do you need this Feature / Why is it a Problem:
    It is difficult to find parameters in the list when there are too many of them. It is difficult or impossible to keep some parameters together, those that are more related to each other, not alphabetically, but in their use.

    If you create parameters such as A, B, C, D, the list results in D, C, B, A. But if you need to add another parameter later such as "Area", the result is Area, D, C, B, A. I would like to have them as A, Area, B, C, D,... automatically or as per my settings, not by using workarounds.

    Organization, classification, ease of use.

    Thanks Alfredo. You have a way with words. I think this is a very important and yet would be faily simple to give us. Maybe even the API could give us something like this...
