Allow sorting of symbols in Insert Symbols into Portfolio dialog box

Go to the next open issue

I use IQ Feed for my data provider. When I am importing symbols using the "Insert Symbols Into Portfolio" dialog box in the QuoteManager, I will typically use the "*" wildcard with the "All Exchanges" option to import all of the symbols.
This returns a list that is sorted alphabetically by symbols. For example, it will start with the following stocks (assuming I am in the "stocks" tab):
Symbol, Description, Exchange:
A, Agilent Technologies, NYSE
AA, Alcoa, NYSE
AA-, Alcoa, NYSE
AAAA, AAA Pub Adjusting Group, OTCBB
AAAB, AAA Best Car Rental, OTCBB
However, there is no way to sort this listing according to other criteria, namely either "Description" or "Exchange." For example, there are times when I will want to sort this list alphabetically according to the exchange, rather than the symbol. However, clicking on the "Exchange" header doesn't do anything. (In contrast, clicking on column headers in other dialog boxes, like the Format Instruments dialog box in MultiCharts, will perform a sort based on the contents of that column.)
It would be great if you could update the "Insert Symbols" dialog box so that when you click on a column header, it sorts on that column.
