Sorting criteria of quantity detail lines

The "Sorting criteria" field has been added to the editing window of an "Item", in a rule of measurement. This way, users can now indicate the order in which the quantity detail lines should be inserted in the item after applying the set of measurement rules to the model.

When editing the "Sorting criteria" field, a list is displayed where users can select properties and quantities of the BIM model components, and also indicate whether they want to sort the value in "Ascending" or "Descending" order. Different sorting criteria can be entered so that when the criterion parameter coincides with several quantity detail lines, the next one in the list will be applied. If no criteria have been specified or if all the criteria match, the same criteria that have been used in previous versions shall be used. This compares the attributes of the quantity detail lines in the following order:

  1. Number of tags.
  2. Comment on the detail line.
  3. Quantity.
  4. Value of field "A".
  5. Value of field "B".
  6. Value of field "C".
  7. Value of field "D".
  8. First identifier of the "BIM Model".
