    Title:
    Sorting Inventory List
    Description:
    On WWB5 it was easy to sort the inventory by Device ID. The UR Device IDs are integer numbers. I always recommended to have the hardware in the racks in the same order as in WWB5 by using "sort by Device ID".
    This is a big help if one tries to find a piece of hardware...

    WWB6 allows numbers and text for Axient devices, but the sorting is different from the WWB5 sorting. Using the numbers 1-10 (10 Receivers), results in the following order:

    10, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,8, 9

    should be: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

    I put this here since I don't know if it is a bug or a feature :-)

      You bring up a great point. Wireless Workbench 6 features Axient systems and other devices in the inventory view, not just UHF-R. Because these devices can have alphanumeric device IDs, sorting them will sort all values as strings of text, and not integer values. This is why your URs are sorted { 10 , 1 , 2 , 3 , ... }.

      The varying capabilities of device ID naming per system make it difficult to sort by that field consistently. A suggestion to work around this in the interim would be to name Axient and other non-UHF-R devices with integer device IDs.

      One More thing:

      Would be cool to be able to Filter i.e. by Manufacturer AND By Zone.

      I operate systems with 40 or more receivers, and 80 or more channels and have run into these numeric vs string sorting issues.

      I use "leading 0's" and a consistent naming convention for my devices and channels that will "sort" the same way. For example, I use the following Device IDs for my AXT400's corresponding to the physical location in the rack(s).
      Rx.01
      Rx.02
      Rx.03
      ...
      Rx.09
      Rx.10
      Rx.11
      ...
      Rx.40

      This way when I sort my WWB inventory by Device ID, it shows up in the same order as my physical devices.

      The same thing works for Channel Names. For example:
      01 Vocal
      02 Vocal
      ...
      12 Vocal
      13 Bass
      14 Gtr
      etc..
