Maybe there is a third party app, or possibly a way to re-order a list alphabetically in InDesign?

Hi @Ken Nielsen: Did you try the Sort Paragaphs script in the Scripts panel? That should take care of it for you. https://creativepro.com/sort-paragraphs-text-indesign/ ~Barb

The script that Barb recommends worls fine on short lists. If your list is long it will take a long time to finish. You can then try this (free) script: https://www.indiscripts.com/post/2020/08/smartsort-1-05-new-design-new-options
