Hi! Thanks very much for the suggestion - I'll look into getting that done. Unless it breaks something else, I don't see why not :) Meantime, categories can be manually rearranged by dragging them up and down in the Category pane.

Category pane contains the list of categories. The list of categories is unsorted. It seems categories are listed in order they were added. In case of large file with lot of categories it is not convenient — it is too hard to find a category in the unsorted list.

I propose to sort the category list alphabetically.

Alternatively, sorting may be turned and off by clicking on category column header. It is a quite standard behaviour in many programs. For example, look at the list of Ignuit bugs at the project page in Savannah (Bugs -> Browse): by clicking on column header you can sort list of bugs by Summary, Status or ID (in both ascending and descending orders).
