Reordering items in the Design System Manager (DSM) plugin

By default, Design System Manager (DSM) will sort your library alphanumerically. You can also reorder items manually.

Selecting sort order

To select your sort order:

  1. In Sketch, click the DSM icon (dsm-icon.png) or use the keyboard shortcut Command + L.
  2. In the left-hand panel, click the category or folder you want to reorder.
  3. At the top right, click the ••• (more) icon.
  4. To sort alphanumerically, click Sort by Name, and then click Confirm.
    To sort manually instead, click Sort Manually, and then click Switch to Manual.


Note: If the folder is set to alphanumeric sorting, and you try to reorder items in the left-hand panel, DSM will prompt you to switch to manual sorting first. To select your sort order, follow the steps above.

When manual sorting is enabled, new items added to a folder will be added to the end of the list.
