This dictionary function does not require the edit dialog to be open - however it requires exactly one stack to be selected.
When the dialog is opened, the entries are sorted according the defined order. Clicking on the header of a column sorts the list in alphabetic ascending order, in respect to the clicked attribute. Additional clicks on the same header re-sort the list according to other criteria. The table below shows the 5 sorting states that are possible. With the sixth click the system starts from start.
|#4||Length, shortest first|
|#5||Length, longest first|
Note: Stackz sorts the entries at any time according to the current ColorMode. There is a ColorMode named DefinedOrder, which processes the entries in the sequence in a specific order. Please refer to the icons , and in the table below for information about how to change the defined order.
