Topic tags/keywords: cutlist cut list

I’ve switched from CutList 3 to CutList 4 (both are awesome!), and I generally use the Compact List option for output. In CutList 3 the web output was sorted by component name. In CutList 4 the web output is listed by component ID – C-1, C-2, C-3. Is there a way to sort by name when Compact is selected?

I tried adding these lines of code just before the def output section, but the list still didn’t sort.

if @@options[:cutlist_Options][:compactList]




It’s mainly the web output that I’d like to see sorted (for file output I can easily sort in Excel) – I used to use the web option to quickly find and correct component naming problems in a large sketchup model before outputting to the .csv file.
