Some users are driven to use aliases for as much as possible, and we have a list of about 400 aliases.

Would it be feasible to add on option to sort the alias list by description?

I have attached a simple example that shows how we use a 'print out' after manually sorting it by description. It groups similar aliases together, of course, based on its description.

Thank you.

I've done that by opening the .dca in word, and after a few search and replace, paste into a table, and sort by 2nd column, can create that list in about 5 minutes or less.

Done for the next build (21.03.05). I've added a View pull-down menu with the items 'Sort by Alias' (the default), and 'Sort by Description'. A checkmark will appear next to whichever sort was performed last.
