How can we improve Ignition?

Tag name sorting in Tag Browser

In the tag browser the tag names are sorted by ASCI order, you should sort them in a way that capital "A" is the same as lower case "a". Right now it will sort all the capital letters to the top from A-Z and then the lower case letters a-z. This is non-intuitive to the user.

    Kathy A. et. al.,
    I was talking about this with one of your support people who was able to reproduce it. He suggested that there may be a miscommunication. when I look at the tags in the "Tag Browser", the docked window on the left, the order of the tags is correct. The only place that I see the upper case / lower case problem is in the "OPC Browser" popup window that you get to by clicking on the OPC icon in the Tag Browser window.
    This is very annoying because my engineers seem to be case-blind when they create tags in the PLC and sometimes I have to look forever to find a tag because of this problem.
    Could you please take another look at this?

    I just installed version 7.9.7 and the problem is still there. the tag browser is sorting tag names ABC...XYZabc...xyz.

    Please re-visit this.

    Kathy, I am running 7.9.4. I did tell Brandon in support about this about a month ago, maybe he relayed it in time for the 7.9.6 version. Or, maybe it was caught earlier by someone else. Either way, when will the 7.9.6 be the latest official version?

    I can't replicate this in 7.9.6. -- they're sorting AaBbCc for me. Maybe we changed this at some spot?
