Parts List sorting

Status: Implemented
by Valued Mentor on ‎11-05-2012 12:56 PM

When working in an IDW it would be nice if I set A particular parts list to sort by item number it would always sort by item number even when parts are added and removed so I don't need to edit the list and tell it to sort by part number......again.

This idea has been implemented within Autodesk Inventor 2015. Special thanks to the author of this Idea and likewise to everyone who cast your Kudo for it. A new “Auto Sort on Update” option has been provided within the Sort command when editing a Parts List in a Drawing. Please be sure to check this out in Autodesk Inventor 2015. Thanks!

not a bad idea.

 

i would like to suggest that this is user toggle option, eg

 

within the parts list edit window, there is a tickbox called "Dynamic sort" that when turned off, is like we currently have. when turned on it does what this idea is requesting.

Great Idea !!  How many times have I printed a drawing just to realize that the BOM is not sorted..... UGH!

 

Agree that it should have a switch somewhere to turn it on/off .  Also need to consider if the sort writes back to the assembly as well.

We work around this currently with an iLogic rule, but it would be great to have it as built-in functionality of the parts list.

 

I would like it even more if the sort option could be saved as part of the parts list style, so it didn't have to be turned on for each parts list individually.
