Dennis,
The sch files are sort in order of the sequence you placed the sheet
symbols.
By using the command Edit>Move>Bring to front you are able to change the
order.
Close and reopen the ddb and now the sch files ar sorted in the right?
order.

Regards,
 Ben Uijtenhaak

Subject: Re: [PEDA] SORT ORDER IN LEFT PANE



SE99 SP6

i think this was kicked around before but couldn't find it

in the the left explorer pane and when using DDB's

the sch file names listed under the project top sheet are not in a nice
order
they seem to be sort of alpha sort except one which is newer
i closed the DDB and expected it to re-sort but it didn't

is there a trick?
i vaguely remember one
