    Hello guys,

    Since there isn't a decent way to organize aphabetically thread prefixes, I'm here to suggest a creation of a Drag & Drop feature for thread prefixes. The reason for this is that sometimes, suppous you have 20 thread prefixes ordered properly to show alphabetically and need to add a new one with letter C, you will need to arrange all other prefixes from C to Z. Its painfull when we talk about more than 20.. 30 ones.

    There's already an addon that does it with thread nodes: Drag & Drop Nodes in the ACP

    I like the idea.

    Until it exists though you may be interested in the method I use for setting the display order of prefixes:
    I take a numerical represntation of the letter and multiply it by 10 (i.e. a = 10, z = 260). So if I was making the following prefixes it'd look like:
    • Bug (20)
    • Not A Bug (140)
    Now if I want to make "Fixed" I can add it as 60 and not have to move anything around. Granted if I wanted to add "fine" after I made "fixed" I'd want it to be 60 and fixed to be 61 but if I'm lazy and don't want to re-order "fixed" I can make "fine" 59 and it shouldn't cause any issues (unless I have 9 prefixes already starting with the letter 'e'.

    Sliding "Confirmed" as 30 after all that results in not having to adjust anything for it to appear in the correct order.

    Just a recommendation.

    Thread prefixes can be ordered using the Display Order setting for each one.

    Space the existing ones out like this:

    Aardvark: 1000
    Apple: 1100

    Ball: 2000
    Balloon: 2100

    Zoo: 26000


    It seems doubtful that with a numbering scheme like that, you will ever have to re-order existing ones.

    @Chris D @Daniel Hood

    Thanks for the answer, guys. You both are correct and I agree with you. The point is that it could be a lot easier :)

    @******* I don't know how you are regarding the addon creation schedule but this one would be great to have around :p

    This is a good idea. Let us try it :)

    Started working on this. It's still pretty rough around the edges (GUI-wise) but I got the main logic working. Also: Hi everybody, I'm new! :)
