I agree that NoteTab needs a numeric sort period, not just in the clip
functions but in the editor itself. Under the assumption that the clip sort
is a mirror of the editor sort you can easily see the results (and
fallacies), of all the arrays in this thread. Even zero padding is not an
Copy Hugo's last array to NTB, change all the commas to ^P and sort:
Notice the "03" is less than "1", "11" is less than 2", and so on.
And while we're at it, NoteTab also sorely needs a major/minor column sort.
Jody's clip has never worked for me so I am left with going to Ultra Edit
for anything other than trivial column one sorts. The lack of column sorts
is a PITA and an unnecessary waste of time.
BTW, UE not only does the numeric sorts but preserved the leading zero
padding characters while correctly sorting the numeric values.
