Sorting your tones?

Is there any way to sort or move your tones around in the lists?

So we're in 2022 and it's still not possible to sort alphabetically?? This is a huge deal breaker for me as I like to have things neatly organized. Same story for Spark App "Categories" like Pop, Rock, etc. It's pretty basic... Is there a place to suggest feature improvement? Bias FX 2 works very nicely compared to the Spark App.

GP set up ‘What’s the big Idea’ top-level Topic to collect user ideas and requests; however, I addressed the same issues and frustration a year or so ago without acknowledgement or action on PG’s part. Based on other forum issues and comments, I don’t think they have the staff to address both improvements and functional problems at the same time.

@mattberg971 Yes, but it is very tedious from within the App. The App simply appends "new" presets to a category (Pop, Rock...), so they appear at the bottom of a particular category list. One could shuffle presets among categories until the desired sort is achieved, however in the "All" category the presets appear ordered by category first, then the order within the category itself, with the categories ordered Hardware (if connected), Pop, Blues, Rock, Metal, Alternative, Bass, Acoustic. To move a preset select the 3-dot|Pencil to the right in the category list and select a different category. Note that in a category with a single preset, the preset may not be moved.
There is a less tedious way, but it requires editing backed up preset files outside of the App on a PC and understanding the file structure and syntax, which may be too technical for some. The order the presets appear in the App is 1:1 with the order within the category file. The really cool thing is one can add their own categories as a side benefit by choosing this route. This topic is a whole discussion in itself. In the screen capture below, "My Presets", "Factory HW" (where I keep the original Factory Hardware Presets), and "TC Downloads" (where I keep Tone Cloud downloads)are added categories.
This screen capture is from the Spark App running on a Chromebook using a "Resizable" window. "My Presets" is outlined in red because the current preset in use is in "My Presets", and "TC Downloads" is highlighted in red because it is shown.
In this screen capture "All" is shown, with "Factory HW" containing the current preset ("2-Crunch" highlighted, the second in "Factory HW"). Note the order follows the categories, i.e. one preset in "My Presets", 4 in "Factory HW", followed by those in "TC Downloads" (as seen above).

@p-dub forgot to mention... If a category is added, the order it appears in the App is not predictable by any means that can be defined.

@p-dub How do you create the new categories? Editing the json file?
