Roland,

I think you may find that was perhaps Willy's way of saying he doesn't like my approach in naming sub-models rather than actually advocating a return to 8.3 filenames.

I'm fine with your naming for what it's worth. I find it absurd that such a fine and powerful tool like LDCad requires a naming convention at all. The 10243 - Parisian Restaurant I'm currently working on is named 10243 - Ground floor - Column, 10243 -  First floor - Balcony, 10243 - Roof and I don't see why I should name them differently just because a prog cannot handle them.

It still needs rules for sorting, current version uses natural sorting on description by default (so "1, 2, 10, 11, 20" without the need of a 0 prefix for single digits).

Maybe sort on keywords?, or introduce a new meta for forcing sorting?

No, no, no, I'm not looking for any kind of automated sorting at all. I'd like something that leaves the order entirely to the user:

   

with the prog rearranging and   writing the 0 FILE statements in the chosen order.

Exactly what I was looking for.
"Sort" on hierarchy in the model file's structure, which is basically no sorting at all.

Could you please add a mode where part selection is disabled, so I don't accidentally move a part when trying to move/rotate the camera? Thanks.

This is available in the session panel (right top where you also can select nested and animation)

In case you wonder (like me...) it's the "View" mode!
