As far as I can tell, the Transmogrifier defaults to listing all resources in the order they were created. When looking for a particular resource to copy from one campaign to another, though, it would be much easier if we could search by name or choose what to sort by (alphabetical, date created.)  The Transmogrifier is one of the great resources for Pro-level subscribers, so making it more useful will hopefully help make the Pro level more attractive. Thanks for considering! (Edited to change the word "Mentor" to "Pro" regarding subscriber level)

P.S.: I hear we can use Control-F to find an instance on the page by name, but that's not as user-friendly. Edited: Nevermind that. Someone suggested that as a solution but it doesn't work. Edited again: So it works in some browsers, seems to depend... either way, a native solution within Roll20 would be the user-friendly approach.

Search and/or sorting within the Transmogrifier would greatly enhance and already great tool.  I upvote this suggestion :) Pixelscapes said: P.S.: I hear we can use Control-F to find an instance on the page by name, but that's not as user-friendly. Edited: Nevermind that. Someone suggested that as a solution but it doesn't work. I use Firefox.  When I'm in the Transmogrifier I select "find" in the menu bar.  Then type what I'm looking for in the bottom " Find in page " field. Hope that helps.

Ahah, sounds like it works in some browsers but not others, then. Good to know. I do still think we need more user-friendly sort options or at least a more user-friendly default sort than FIFO. Tragically, after four months and seeing how many other suggestions are out there, I really doubt this will ever happen. But here's hoping! Thanks for the vote. :D

+1 I concur. We need this soon. It shouldn't be too difficult to implement, just down on the priority list.

Not sure this fits 100% here but I would also be interested in it also having the folders of the campaigns and the functionality to shift the whole folder collectively from one to another, I use the transmog tool a lot and although I love it and im thankful to have it a better functionality to find files among the possibly 100's of items would be a massive help. +1

This listing issue, listed in order added, also happens when trying to select audio to 'Play on Load'.  Simple sorting or auto sorting should be added everywhere this issue come sup. I wish I had a vote to give but I am maxed out. +1

+1 I have huge playlists that I would like to transfer between games. To be able to drag my battle music playlist from game to game would make things so much easier!

Devs, please. I beg of you to make the transmogrifier searchable and in alphabetical order. For. The. Love. Of. All. Things. Holy. P.S. love you guys and can't stop/won't stop playing games on roll20.

You can use your browsers "find" function (you'll have to use the menu rather than a keyboard shortcut) to search within the transmogrifier window... but options within the tool itself would be much more convenient and intuitive.
I am a long term GM and have lots of content that I share across games. Please improve this functionality. As your platform grows and a GM has multiple games and content this is a very important feature to improve.

+1 I would be happy just to have items sorted alphabetically within the groupings.

I use folders for each adventure in my campaign. Then subfolders for handouts and npcs similarly to how purchased wotc adventures are laid out. Being able to use the transmogrifier by folder would save alot of hassle of moving handouts in different games. The functionality already exists... bringing in an addon to the game from wotc adventures as an example.

This is something we definitely need!  +1
