Are you sure? Mine are in alpha. order. To make it easier, I start my descriptions with a category (like "Salad Dressing") followed by the specific ("light Asian") and the serving size. When I pull up the list I just scroll down to salad dressings, and all the ones I put in are there.
It works quite well, and is very quick.

What a great idea! I noticed that some of my custom entries looked all mixed up and then I realized that if an entry starts with a lower-case letter, it will sort differently than something starting with the same upper-case letter. I had to go in and edit to fix that. Lots of work! So, if you can find an organizing principle for your foods when you start, it's so much easier.

Default Alphabetize

Would like a way to alphabetize custom foods.

What I've noticed is that if you use a capital letter, it alphabetizes the custom foods. If you start the food with a lowercase letter, it puts it in the order it was added, not alphabetically. And the lowercase ones are always after the capitalized ones.

I see where the sort issue with custom foods has been open for two years. This indicates to me they are not going to fix this issue. I am sorry that I spent $30 on the program. Most of the foods I use are in the custom list. And trying to find an item in an unsorted list is terrible.

What $30 program are you having an issue with?

My food is showing up in alphabetical order and always has.

FYI.. The following Forum threads are also questioning why Custom Foods is not sorting itself in alphabetical order:

Alphabetize Custom Foods
List Sort Order
Custom Foods
Custom Foods Carry Over
Alphabetize
Listing Food Alphabetically

I am active on the "Alphabetizer Custom Foods" thread ... FYI
