[chirp_users] How to save/upload after sorting the CHIRP rows?

I really appreciate what CHIRP does, use it often and seek only to improve
it. No offense intended!

I do understand.   I've been a system software developer since 1962 and
contributing to the "Open Source" source community since 1992 (e.g. the
/BriefCase(tm)  revision control & release management toolkit -
www.applied-cs-inc.com).

Because options to print, save & upload edited/displayed content are so
ubiquitous among editing programs, it seemed inconceivable to me that they
were not available in CHIRP.

The "Safe in Church" deception: believing that calling some building a
"sanctuary" will magically deter criminal violence is a dangerous delusion!

The "Gun-Free Zone" deception: believing that a "No Guns" policy or sign
will deter criminal violence is "magical thinking" in its most dangerous
form!

In your time of need, may your piece be with you!
