We currently use spheres as our main categories with LAS 8.6.13 but wanted “Earth as a System” to sort at the end after Hydrosphere. Roland Schweitzer provided a solution using the sort_order option (<dataset name='Dataset1' sort_order='zzz') as an element which works with Ferret 7.5 or 7.6 but seems to be ignored using PyFerret 7.63.
Current order using PyFerret 7.63 is Atmosphere, Biosphere, Cryosphere, Earth as a System, Geosphere, Hydrosphere using the same xml as on the production system where the order is Atmosphere, Biosphere, Cryosphere, Geosphere, Hydrosphere, Earth as a System . Please provide a PyFerret solution.
