Hi,

does anybody know whether it is possible to sort TOC entries alphabetically?

Please do not discuss whether this is usefull or not. I just want to do so.

Welcome to the forums! :)

You can sort the TOC temporarily by switching to the Grid View of the TOC Editor and then sorting by the Title column. This doesn't affect the order of the TOC items within the TOC file itself; it's just a different way to view the TOC.

I don't know of a way to sort the TOC items permanently.

Hi again,

sorting the TOC permanently is the feature I am looking for.

Maybe I need to propose that as a new feature für the next flare version...

You may want to look at XML tools that can sort entries. Flare does not mind if files are edited externally as long as the file itself remains formally correct. Before experimenting make a backup.
