Sort and group your models in the model tree

Sort and group your models in the model tree

In BIMcollab Zoom, the model tree is sorted alphabetically. To sort and group models, prefixes can be used on the models in your file:

Prefixes are stored in the project folder or project file, so next time you open the project the models will be sorted the same way.
