Using ArcGIS Pro 2.7:

Is there a way to sort the items in the contents pane alphabetically? I have a stack of tables I'd like to order that way:

I think the short answer is no. If you right click on the map node in the TOC (what I would be calling a data frame in ArcMap) you can reorder layers by name/type, there is no equivalent for standalone tables. I did discover whilst looking into this question you can drag 'n' drop tables into a preferred order, but it would be nice to see a reorder option for tables too.

four rules to a successful gis career

Pick something you want to do

  • left-click
  • right-click
  • double-click
  • if you don't see what you need you are clicking on the wrong thing or the wrong way.

For example... unorder layers in a table of contents, order them

might work for other things... or not

Rats; thought did it, but didn't.  When I right click on Standalone Tables it gives me the choice to reorder layers and that's what it does, but not tables....
