I’m not sure whether this post should be in this list or the suggestions list but here goes…
I am developing my own snippets and have come up against a rather annoying problem. The snippets plugin seems to want to sort the snippets within my snippets folder. I am trying to arrange my snippets in a functional order and don’t want them in alphabetic (or any of the other provided orders) I just want them left the way I want them ordered.
EditPlus has a simple solution (I’ll quote from a clip text file):
This Clip Lib is designed to be the HTML equivalent to

The “#SORT” statement turns sorting on or off.
Can something similar be done with snippets? If not could it please be considered for a future release.

You can add numbering in front of snippet titles, but that’s the only way I can think of. I might consider the sorting option in the future. Thanks for your inputs!September 18, 2010 at 3:56 am #8987
Numbering the snippets looks very ugly; adding a “no sort” option to a future release would be very nice thank you :-D

Can you tell me whether the option to sort/not sort snippets has been added to EmEditor yet?
If not; do you have any idea when (if) it might be added?
Sorry to nag about this feature but I (and I guess other serious snippet users) would find this useful. :-?

Looks like it has been to me.
Have you tried right-clicking in the snippet plugin/view?
And as far as I can tell, you can drag snippets up and down, and move them where you like.
Though no ListBox headers/sorting. Just the context menu items.December 8, 2010 at 2:42 pm #9147
Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes I have seen these new settings and I know you can drag snippets up and down the list. However, the dragging solution is not permanent. Close down EmEditor and restart it and the snippets are back in sorted order – very frustrating.
What I am after is a “NO SORT” option. I have resorted to numbering snippets to get around the problem – very tacky! :-x
If I’m not doing this correctly, then any help in using these settings would be appreciated.
