alphabetic order, please. when looking for something we don't know, having them categorized doesn't really help much. maintain in Excel and it is easy to sort them.
FYI,If you have (if not make one) a google gmail account, you can then use Google Drive to maintain files on line. On top of that, they have their own version of word/excel/power point (watered down a bit), but for maintaining an list of definitions it is easy. you can sort the column as well, just like in the real Excel.These apps work on any platform, pretty much.
