So one other question: I want my parts list to display the items alphabetically by part number. I see how to do this in the BOM settings in an assembly but can't figure out how to set this in the parts list.

I don't think there is, but you might look at the grouping options in the style editor. That might do it, but I'm honestly not sure. I tend to order them by item number rather than part number, and I try to set the item number order by balloon position going clockwise from upper left, so I wind up re-doing all the item numbers and sorting by that.
