Juxt Array Sort
By default, traces in the Array display are in order by "trace number", which is the order in which they were originally saved via Add New. (Note that the Up/Down Direction button may always be used to reverse the displayed order.)
When Sort is depressed, traces are sorted according to the specified Label Field.
Toggling Sort off does not "unsort" the traces, it leaves them in their current sorted order. If you want to restore the default trace number order, set Label Field to "Trace #" while Sort is on.
If you want to sort on one Field but label the traces with another Field, set Label Field to the desired sort field with Sort on, then toggle Sort off and set Label Field as desired.
If the Label Field specifies a Field into which you have entered values manually or via direct macro (as opposed to setting the Field to be automatically updated when a specified control is changed), make sure you use a consistent data format for all entries.
The Sort process treats the Field as a normal Daqarta number entry, allowing a units prefix. For example, if you are entering time units you could enter them all in seconds, using an m units prefix as needed. 1.23m, 1.23 m, and 1m23 would all be sorted as the same value, as would 1.23ms and 1.23 msec. (Base units that appear after a prefix are ignored.)
You might instead choose to enter all values in milliseconds, with the prefix assumed but not shown, as in 1.23. The danger comes if you try to mix the two approaches, since 1.23 will be treated as 1000 times larger than 1.23m.
TIP: You can use a spare Field to force an arbitrary sort order. Use the Juxt Trace Scroll button to select each trace, then enter its desired sort order into the chosen Field. Then set the Juxt Array Label Field to that Field number and toggle Sort on to get the new order. You can then toggle Sort off and set the Juxt Array Label Field back to whatever you want to see as labels on the array.
JuxtSort=1 activates the Sort state, JuxtSort=0 forces it off, and JuxtSort=x toggles it.
