Just wondering if anyone knows a way to sort images in Lightwave alphabetically ?

Not a big deal with just a few images in a model, but the game levels I work on become a huge pain when troubleshooting with 75+ images, and modeler sorts them in the order they were loaded no matter what I try. The UV maps themselves sort alphabetically, but NewTek left out sorting of images as far as I can tell.

This applies to both the Image Editor, and the image selection when editing the UV's.

Anyone know of any workarouds ?
Thanks in advance...

you first name them with a sequence
for example : Image_001
Image_002 etc etc

that might help
i remember i had the same question and well i am pretty sure that naming them in a sequnce helps me

:D

Unfortunately I'm not the one to create the images, and therefore have no control over their names. All I need to do though is access them alphabetically when searching through the list, so there is some kind of method to my searching.
