You have text in a text box in QuarkXPress that needs to be sorted?
A list that needs to be in alphabetical order?
- Select the text box that you need sorted
- Enter whether you want the data to be sorted Ascending or Descending
- Enter whether you sort text or numbers
Of course this is undoable.
Remember that this is a script that you can edit and change yourself, should you want to make changes. E.g. you could make a script that doesn’t prompt you about ascending/descending or text/numbers and just runs.
- The Script sorts the entire content of the selected text box, not just a selection.

Quark has created a page on github to share more sample scripts and to encourage users to share their scripts:
