I do a lot of custom sorts in Excel 2016 on Win 10. I can easily open up the custom sort dialog box using the ribbon shortcuts using Vocola/Caster, and in the dialog box I can add/delete/etc sort levels.  But I can't figure out how to use the keyboard to actually pick the fields I want to sort on.  I know this was possible in earlier versions of Excel.  I'm also a bit surprised; Office is mostly great at giving you ways to manipulate things using the keyboard.

Has anyone been able to make this work?  Even using tabbing doesn't get there; neither do click commands.  And the Dragon command browser doesn't seem to have any built in voice commands.  If I have to I'll create a mouse command to do it; I try to avoid them given that I work on multiple machines that don't have the same screen size.

 

Thanks!

Anders
