Is there a way to sort the parts list by two factors? For example, when I sort by Category, it defaults to sorting by color after that, but I want to see the elements sorted by part #.
I know about the drilldown, but I am not looking to isolate one category of parts, so that doesn't work.
So is it possible to somehow "sort by x, then by y?"
A somewhat related question is, is it possible to specify how to sort the parts list when exporting to an html table? It seems to default to sorting by part # there and "category" is not a column.
This is very interesing i only do not understand why nobody is taking any action to give the numbers free so as Nathan did ask.
I think it is for you Thea.
I'm waiting a long time for these parts to use.
I've got five images plus a PDF of building instructions plus an LDraw data file in Bricksafe at https://bricksafe.com/pages/Walt.White/preliminary-ball-pump
My Rebrickable page referencing those files is at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-7921/Walt.White/bbtb-ball-pump/#comments
The problem is that the Rebrickable slide show of those Bricksafe images includes a "Brick Not Found" image. I can't figure out what that error image references, or how to correct it.
I tried a custom list with about 400 parts. I even added a known color error part to the custom list and a part list to see what would happen.
The only thing I can think of is that your Custom List was created with the idea of using similar colors or one of the other options. This type of build isn't available with Custom Lists. When I used a 'similar color option', it showed I had 98% of the parts and was only missing 8 parts. But there is a notice on the Find My Parts page that warns you it will only look at your inventory for exact matches. After using my parts list, that page tells me that I am missing 67 parts.
Well that would turn Nathans job into a management position more then it is already today running all the admins and moderators today. I think it's better that he works on adding good tools for the community to contribute with. rather then having to manage and test all "code snippets" the community want to plugin. where most probably have a negative impact on the server performance due to not really understand the full complexity of the source code.
If you have some cool functionality idea you can probably outsource it to your own software/app/webpage by using Rebrickables Rest API.
When you done that successfully you can show that to Nathan and perhaps get it integrated as a new feature.
