Specifies the primary sort order for notes within containers (such as agents), based on an existing system or user attribute. In default sorting A-Z precedes a-z, thus the sort order Aardvark, Boy, aardvark [sic], though this can be altered by SortAlso which offers three choices of sort logic.

A secondary sort is also allowed, such as where two notes have equal values under the main sort criterion. The secondary sort is set via SortAlso.

If unsure of allowed target attribute on which to sort, the best place to set a sort is via the note's naming panel (Enter key). If exposed via KeyAttributes, the value pop-up will only show values already sorted on within the document.

To reverse the sort order based on the given attribute, use SortBackward.
