Lines Sorter is a plugin for Intellij-based products that sorts lines in text files (available from the Plugin Manager).

Just select lines and call either Edit->Sort Lines menu, or Alt+ Shift+L shortcut. When no lines are selected, the whole file is sorted.


  • Sort is only case-insensitive and ascending
  • When the file ends with empty lines (only one line separator on the line), these empty lines are preserved at the end (they are not included in sort)
  • See Property Sorter plugin to sort property files in a smarter way
  • See String Manipulation for more advanced features about string operations. Should sort features have been implemented at the time, my plugin would not have existed!
