Here kwrite isn't attempting to become kate -- no multi-doc-interface issues surrounding adding 'sort' at all. Just giving kwrite the same sort tool kate has. Depending on what I'm doing, I may have one 20 doc kate window open and then another 5-6 instances of kwrite. There a many times when I'm cleaning up build dependencies, I like to put them in an array by alphabetical order so it makes it easier to parse the list. In kate, it is a simple matter of doing: Tools -> Sort -> Sort-Dialog (set ascending/descending and click go) the data immediately sorts: here is the data: http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/sort-kate-1.jpg Here is the menu item 'Sort': http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/sort-kate-2-menu.jpg Here is the result (all sorted) http://www.3111skyline.com/dl/dt/trinity/ss/sort-kate-3-sorted.jpg > > I don't see any such menu item in Kate Tools menu.
