Sorting custom properties?

Sorting custom properties?

Sorting custom properties?

I have a Visio document that I put quite a bit of time into.  I planned it as well as possible before starting and added all the custom properties I needed--in order--from the get go.  New manager, new requirements, and now I need to add new custom properties.  I want them to sort alphabetically, but the new custom properties are always added to the bottom of the list.  Is there some way to sort them so that I can get the order I want without having to remove everything and enter it from scratch?


RE: Sorting custom properties?

The Custom Properties/Shape Data rows have a Sort By field. You can add a value to the Sort Key (at the bottom of the Custom Property/Shape Data dialog. You can also make the changes in the Shapesheet.

For the true fanatics, it is also possible to save the file as XML and move the custom properties around. Definitely not for the faint hearted.
