Difference with sorting by “Equipped”

With default SkyUI, sorting by Equipped (click Name 2 times) will group equipped items at the top, but everything is sorted alphabetically.
Result: equipped items A-Z > unequipped items A-Z.

With this mod, sorting by type also groups equipped items at the top.
Result: equipped items by type > unequipped items by type.

Sorting column reset bug in SkyUI

In SkyUI, the sorting column is reset if the current view does not have the chosen column from the previous view.


1. Open Magic menu
2. Go to Active Effects view and change sorting to Time left
3. Go to another view (any spell school). The sorting changes to Name (or Icon with this mod) because the other views do not have Time left column. [Expected behaviour]
4. Go back to Active Effects view, the sorting is reset to Name (or Icon with this mod) [Unexpected behaviour / bug]

To avoid this bug, the same column is used for sorting every view, then the attributes for sorting are all added to that column.

Similar mods

There are other mods that do partly similar things as this mod:

But, I was not satisfied with them because I still need to change the sorting manually for different views. So I made this mod.
