Sorting Code Rows

Rows can be sort­ed in a vari­ety of ways, man­u­al drag­ging up and down being the most com­mon. However, using name and col­or can auto­mate the process and make orga­niz­ing the time­line a lot quicker.

Sort Rows by Color

Choose Rows > Sort rows by col­or from the main menu bar. Colors are sort­ed in order of the palette from left to right descend­ing from lighter to dark­er. The col­or palette has 600 col­ors and each col­or has an (X,Y) coor­di­nate. White in the upper left most cor­ner (1,20) and the dark­est red in the low­er right most cor­ner (30,1) define the sort­ing pat­tern from left to right, top to bottom.

Sort Rows by Color then by Name

Choose Rows > Sort rows by col­or then by name from the main menu bar. All rows will sort by col­or and then with­in each col­or sort by name.

Sort Rows by Number of Instances

Choose Rows > Sort rows by num­ber of instances from the main menu bar. All rows will sort accord­ing to how many instances are in each row. The row with the most amount of instances will move to the first row. The row with the sec­ond most amount of instances will move to the sec­ond row and so on.

Sort Rows in Reverse Order

Choose Rows > Sort rows in reverse order from the main menu bar. All rows will arrange in reverse order from top to bot­tom to bot­tom to top.
