 +==== Sort Order ====

 +By default reports sort items alphabetically by title in ascending order. Sorting within the Zotero report window is not currently possible ([[|see below]]. You can, however, customize the sort order for reports by generating them from a [[collections_and_tags#​collections|Collection]] or [[searching#​saved_searches|Saved Search]].
 +
 +If you right-click on a collection or Saved Search in Zotero'​s left pane, then choose "​Generate Report from Collection/​Saved Search",​ Zotero will use the current sort order of the columns in the Zotero center pane for the report. To generate a report for an entire library, first make a Saved Search with the parameters: ''​Title''​ ''​contains''​ ''​%'',​ then right-click on this Saved Search.
