The ability to sort Sources in the Sort Box would make it easier to find a source when many sources

James Barrett Tadje said: I have many sources in the Source Box. I add them as I find them, making the order of sources chronological as of the date they are added. When many sources are added, I have several pages to search through when I am looking for one of the sources. If I could sort them, it would make it much easier to find a source in the source box. I wouldn't have to check each page in the Source Box looking for the source I want.

The source box is intended to be a temporary holding area for your sources. Once you have attached the source to the individual or individuals that it applies to then the source should be deleted from the source box.
There are some sources that I want to keep such as Books, Parish Registers etc. that apply to many individuals and my be used again and again for different families. I have set up folders for these sources such as "Special Sources", "Books" or "Parish Registers" etc. You still can't sort within the folder but at least you have a smaller number of sources to deal with.0
