I see there is functionality to automatically sort the files on solution open here:

https://bidshelper.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#SSIS/AutoSortProjectFilesPlugin.cs

How do I enable this?

Thanks!

You'll need to download the code and build it, that feature wasn't added until after the 1.7.0 release.

Depending on the version of visual studio I had trouble getting it working right. So it is sort of an alpha feature at the moment. If you do build BIDS Helper yourself let us know your experience.

I went ahead and built it, and it seems to have worked with some projects but not others. Maybe everything except the first project in my solution? It's hard to tell because I'm not positive whether any of them happen to be sorted correctly without any intervention.

Thanks!

Made a small change, and I have it working on some SQL2012/VS2012 solutions with multiple projects and folders, but another solution I have just doesn't work. Will have to investigate further when I get some time.
