Make classes on 'Style Manager' sortable and searchable

USER STORY:

As a Webflow user, I want the ability to sort classes alphabetically and find classes using a search box, so that I can locate specific classes or assure my class names follow conventions that are consistent.

For example, I would want to rename the following classes if I was actually able to see them one above the next in the Style Manager:

navlink-A
navlink_b
navlink_C
nav-linkD.

or

modal header 1
Modalheader2
modal header_3

Additionally... if we could see how many times a class had been used in the current project that would be great. You already track this on the 'Style' panel, so why not make the 'Style Manager' more useful.

(Especially helpful for us users who export all files for upload to non-Webflow hosting with cPanel and custom database integration.)

    I would like to add further that it'd be incredibly helpful to be able to adjust the order of classes in the style manager. CSS is order specific, if I create Class A and then create Class B that has new properties, it will override Class A. This becomes a problem when I create global modifying classes that are used to override other properties.


    There's been several times where I made the mistake of making my global modifier classes to early in development. My only choice at that point is to delete all of the modifier classes to then have to remake them later in development. Such a waste of time. Being able to re-order classes in the style sheet would fix that.

    Also, make it exportable, so you can work better with your class-naming system

    It would be cool to implement this under the quick find (CMD+E or K) and add a tab that said styles.

    This has got to happen. I am spending way to much time scrolling up and down my styles panel trying to find the class I want to edit.

    We can sort database fields by dragging them, so why not the style manager too...

    Isn't it about time this feature was addressed?

    Totally agree. Seems like such an easy thing to implement that would be so helpful to keep organized on more complex builds.

    Given how Webflow enforces a new style for even the tiniest local tweak in formatting, you quickly end up with hundreds of styles for a realistic website. The ability to at least sort them alphabetically in the style manager is critical--it should have been a basic feature right from the beginning. The style manager is almost useless without it.
