Sorts (re-orders) all (or selected) M#s in the M#s spreadsheet of a Shape Table.
NOTE: Each component of a shape has a unique M#. M#s are used by the Animation equations in a connected Structure window to retrieve shape component data for display in animation.
When this command is executed, the dialog box below opens;
Choose a sorting method from the Sort By drop down list.
Use individual selections from the Select From list, or Select All to obtain an initial Sort Using list.
Use the Ascending, Descending selections to order the Sort Using list.
Select items in the list and use the Remove button to obtain the desired list.
Click on Sort to sort the M#s according to the Sort Using list.
All M#s that don't satisfy the criterion in the Sort Using list will follow the sorted M#s in the sorted order.
Sort DOFs By Dialog box.
Sorts M#s by their Engineering Units.
Engineering Units are listed in the Units column in the M#s spreadsheet.
Sorts M#s by their DOF;
DOF = Roving DOF : Reference DOF [Measurement Set]
Single channel M#s have only a Roving DOF.
Cross channel M#s have a Roving & Reference DOFs.
Measurement Set numbers are used when data is acquired in multiple measurement sets.
DOFs are displayed in the DOFs column in the M#s spreadsheet.
Sorts M#s by their Roving DOF;
DOF = Roving DOF : Reference DOF
Sorts M#s by their Reference DOF;
DOF = Roving DOF : Reference DOF
Sorts M#s by their Roving DOF Point number;
DOF = Roving (Point Number & Direction) : Reference DOF.
Sorts M#s by their Roving direction;
DOF = Roving (Point Number & direction) : Reference DOF.
Sorts M#s that form a rectangular matrix of rows & columns based on their DOFs.
Roving DOFs correspond to rows of the rectangular matrix.
Reference DOFs correspond to columns of the rectangular matrix.
Sorts M#s by their Measurement Type.
Measurement Types are listed in the Measurement Type column in the M#s spreadsheet.
Sorts M#s by their Measurement Set number;
DOF = Roving DOF : Reference DOF [Measurement Set]
Sorts M#s by their Data Type.
Data Types are listed in the Data Type column in the M#s spreadsheet.
Sorts M#s by their text Label.
Labels are listed in the Label column in the M#s spreadsheet.
Sorts M#s by their Input Output.
Input Output is listed in the Input Output column in the M#s spreadsheet.
Sorts M#s by their Acoustic Source text name.
Source names are listed in the Acoustic Source column in the M#s spreadsheet
