Detecting language please wait for.......
There is no ability to auto sort the new color spec - in the old days it would be in strict numerical order - now its difficult to know what numerbs have been used and what have not.
Actually if adding "sorting" to one column then presumably it could be added to all the columns relatively simply. I agree Mark's answer is a "user defined" fiddle but it should be in the core product - who adds a number (the primary field) and sees it placed non-numerically.
Yes I can see that this becomes a problem over time. It should not be a big problem for engineering to add a 'sort numerically' entry in the interface to rearrange your color spec.And while we are there why not add the possibility to sort alphabetically based on the color names - this would make it easier to find a particular color.Or what about a 'find color' entry that allows you to search for a particular (partially) color name?
At first I was like Mark and thought well the color spec file is ascii, how hard is it to write a script that does that for you.But at second thoughts I think this really should be integrated in the interface.
I have some Perl that will take the color spec, and find 'holes' or gaps in the sequencing. It wouldn't take more than a few lines of additional code to sort numerically by color number and/or by color name. And export it to a new spec file of course ;) Let me know if this is of interest and I'll dig it up and post here.
