Ordering sub menu items Joomla

Hello,

I have one menu item named "hobby"..Under this menu item there are more than 50 sub menu items..So overall tree looks like this

Hobby
---Axxxx
---Bxxxx
   .......
   .......
---Zxxx

Now in the menu if i want to insert "Byyy" under hobby then "Byyy" sub menu item shown at the end.

Hobby
---Axxxx
---Bxxxx
   .......
   .......
---Zxxx
---Byyy

But i want all the sub menu items to be shown in alphabetical order. To make this order i have to up the "Byyy" order by clicking up arrow 50 times (since i have more than 50 sub menu items)

Is there any other way that automatically order all my sub menu items alphabetically?

hmm - do this - instead of using the little arrows -  actually highlight the ordering numbers and change them - i.e. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc  change each to get them in the order that you want   - THEN - at the top of the ordering column is a little disc icon click on this to save the new ordering - not automatic but quicker than your current method

+1 Definitely have better results with direct entry for ordering.. also, once you modify one of the menu items, it can change order, so after changes ensure its in the correct location. :)

Yes, above method reduce the time..
But is there any automated process for this? Its hard to change order of sub menu evrerytime new menuitem is inserted. In my case i need to add menuitem frequently..

u can change the order when u create a new menu item by changing the ordering in the 'Order' dropdown within that menu items admin page..
