Description

Currently, the way you sort items in the Outliner is rather unclear.

We include this option in the Filter popover:

But when you disable this, you cannot re-order objects manually - instead they are displayed in the order of creation.

Additionally, this toggle only affects objects, not Collections, which are always manually sorted.

We can make this a lot clearer and more consistent, like so.

  • Replace the Sort Alphabetically toggle with an enum for with different sorting methods:

  • Make it apply to everything: Objects, Bones & Collections.
  • When set to Free, you can then freely re-organize both Collections and objects manually.

Event Timeline

Worth noting that currently bones can neither be sorted alphabetically, nor by hand. Would be super cool to have them benefit from all these enhancements, too !
