Tool Library organization

Just bought HSM Advisor - looks great.

Now I'm trying to organize my tooling and working with the tool libraries. I find I can't re-order the libraries in the database. I'd like to put the most-frequently used tool types at the left and the infrequent ones to the right, since the drop down menu in the speeds & feeds tab is the same library order as in the database tab.

About the only thing I can to is create new libraries and delete the old ones. Even creating a new one and merging with an existing one causes the new one to move to the left and the old to disappear. And if I think of a new cutter category and add it as a new library it always moves to the right end.

Any suggestions for someone starting from scratch? I have no tools in the library (yet), so I don't care at this point what I'm deleting/moving or whatever, but it's getting frustrating and will only get worse when I start putting tools in each library.

Thanks for the purchase!

No. It is not possible right now re-order the tool libraries.

But i can totally see how useful it can be.

I am going to add custom ordering in the next update.

Thank you for the suggestion !

Best regards.
