Sorting Folders

Is there any was to set permanently the way you want folders ordered? i dont want to have to click the sort by name button ever time I go to update anything.

    Guessing you're talking about folders that come up when you're inserting a part or assembly.

    That's an annoyance to me too.  Having to relearn and look for a doc once you make a new version of a library does slow me down.

    Coming here to bump this! It drives me crazy that:
    • You can't change the order those items appear in;
    • The order doesn't match what's shown on the Onshape home page; and
    • It doesn't sort by "recently opened" or any identifiable parameter.

    This is a real annoyans. Compare: If you have a workshop,  you would certanly like to see the tools hanging on their assigned place then you arrive in the morning!  Refer to the folders in my Onshape

    Bumping this up: we really need to lock the positions of folders in the explorer by name. 
    Gets confusing sometimes when you have a wall of folders that is constantly changing order.

    Its sucks, I wish it would just leave my sort order alone and quit rearranging my files.  PITA
