Group order tags by prefix on ticket screen

I recall seeing a post about grouping order tags by prefix on the ticket screen. I can’t for the life of me find it; my google-fu has failed.

In this case I’d like to group the tags by prefixes: No, Left, Right, Half, Whole.


If one could point me in the right direction I’d most appreciate it.


You might want display format in the order tag section. I’m not a 100% sure about that. I remember Mark having trouble with Display Format and printing Sorted Order Tags. This is the closest I could find:

Hopefully that will get you going in the right direction.

On screen I think should be grouped by tag type Nd sorted groups by tag sort order in managment.
There is more/seperste control in print templates from memory but not sure about by prefix.
Within a tag group I expect they are sorted in order tagged.

Display format doesn’t seem to change anything. As for markw’s issue, I, too, had issues with sorted order tags and grouping based on prefix. I had to use ORDER TAGS instead of SORTED ORDER TAGS.

Yep, sort order is based on what’s defined in the order tag group.

Seeing as the prefix is just appended to the tag value I’m not sure what I’d like to see is possible.
