Changing Document Sort Order
The sort order determines the order in which documents are listed in the document list.
You change the sort order by clicking a column header in the document list. Click a column header once to sort documents based on that column property in ascending order, click the same column header again to sort documents based on that column property in descending order.
Set the Default Sort Order
You can set up a default sort order based on your own sorting preferences, so that when you select a folder, the documents in that folder will by default always be listed in order. For example, maybe you always want the documents listed in order, based on when they were updated. Or, maybe you always want the documents sorted first by when they were updated, then by name.
The Sort dialog opens.
- From the Sort by list, select the column property that you want the document list sorted by.
- Set whether you want this column to be sorted in Ascending or Descending order.
- If you want to add a
secondary column to sort by, click
Add, then select a column property from the
Then by list, then set whether you want this
column to be sorted in
Repeat this step as needed.
- When finished defining the default sort order, click OK.
The documents in the document list will now be sorted in the default order(s) defined here. Even though a default order is set, you can still manually sort the document list as described above, by clicking any column header in the document list.
