    Default List drawings by date in Select Project Drawing dialog box

    I would like to have AutoCad list the existing drawings to be opened in order "by date" in the Project Dialog box.
    The drawings are now listed in alphabetical order and I realize I can browse the directory and sort by date, but it just takes a lot of clicks.

    Is the a variable that I can change to have this list of drawings displayed in order of dates last editted?

    It's the first box you get when after you've open AutoCad/Civil 3D Companion and want to open an existing drawing withing a project sub-directory. When I open AutoDesk, I get this box showing my different projects in separate sub-directories, each with their on coordinates and associated drawings. The available drawings are shown in alphabetical order to be selected and opened. I'm interested in having this display of drawings listed in sequential order by date rather than alphabetically.

    You should get a better response in one of the Civils forums - maybe this one.

    I've moved this thread to the Civil 3D - Land Desktop Companion discussion forum since this is the application you are using.
