I asked this myself a week or two ago. It does not yet exist in FM7,
apparently not in FM8. I expect -- when I get time -- to write
something that'll allow you to sort selected objects from north to
south (and west to east, if you have them at the same NS position).
I'd *like* to have it configurable, or a single routine that takes an
argument indicating sort gravity. That's the second test.

I can't help you here. You could perhaps selec the symbols applied and
set the scaling after the fact, I think.
