Deck Sort Key Command
This Deck Sub-Component adds an action that sorts the cards in a Deck according to pre-defined sort parameters based on properties defined by the cards.
The Sort action can be initiated by a right-click menu action, or by a Global Hotkey sent from another Vassal trait or component.
