Tulamide - Oh. I don't know how useful z-sorting the objects list is for you, but it really doesn't have any functional use for me, and I can't really think of one, considering all instances are at different z-orders anyway.
Simul810 - Very good point, I have got some objects named well like that, but definitely a way around the mess.
Ashley - I do use the search box, it is most definitely a help finding objects.
Arima+ROJOhound - Bingo, so it is in there Good to know, I have not really ventured into the project tab beyond layouts, events sheets and globals, so I will investigate this.
So it seems grouping the event objects is in already.
Still think a different ordering on the object list would be infinitely more helpful than Z ordering however!
I don't really like making these posts, but being on the other side of the world from the rest of the Scirra user base I can hardly catch anyone awake in Chat. Not to mention the wealth of information that is laid down in the forum will be there for when I need to search for a refresher further down the track.
