How to sort Navisworks selection tree?

Navisworks interface is somewhat overwhelmed with features and buttons. That’s why some really useful things like sorting become overlooked for years. So here is how you can make your Navis tree look cleaner:

NavisworksSelectionTree_Unsorted

Open an *.NWF file with unsorted selection tree, select the ‘Standard’ option from the drop-down list. Then right-click on any item in the tree, and select ‘Scene’ > ‘Sort’:

NavisworksSelectionTree_Sort

Navisworks will notify you that this operation can’t be undone. You can save your file if you want, then click ‘OK’:

NavisworksSelectionTree_Warning

That’s it! Now your selection tree looks clean and structured:
