Midas: Even if it "doesn't do that", it can often do that

I've searched in vain looking for a way in Notes Client to sort the attachments (alphabetically by File Name) in a rich text field. Do you know of any way to do this?
I have a documents with about 20 files attached in a rich text field. The user wants to have these sorted without having to remove and add them in the correct order.Now, I happen to remember thinking that this was not available in Midas for some reason, even though it makes some sense to me, but I tried anyway using the amazingly versatile Sort method:

People who don't have access to your product need to do it manually. Not by removing and re-adding, but by
1. putting a line break after every attachment
2. selecting all paragraphs and creating a bullet list
3. using CTRL+UP/DOWN to reorder the list items
4. removing the bullets and line breaks
Your customer will be happy he doesn't need to do the above !

Jan - Clever workaround! It would still be a pain with twenty attachments, but it is a way to do it for those who don't have Midas. Thanks!
