    I hope this is a simple request: I would find very useful if the class names in the left pane in scripting reference (here http://docs.unity3d.com/ScriptReference/ ) where sorted by name.

    If you open the UnityEngine/Classes folder you'll see many classes from AccelerationEvent to ParticleSystem in alphabetic order. Then it starts again with Burst and goes down to VelocityOverLifeTimeModule. Then you have many other classes, ending with YieldInstruction.

    This is very confusing when you have to quickly browse the doc searching for a class. Looks like some classes should be in a collapsing folder, or they should be sorted in the correct order.

    Thank you :)

    Thank you for reporting this. Yes classes like Burst and VelocityOverTimeModule are inner classes of ParticleSystem, and should be nested in the table of contents. We actually JUST fixed the issue internally and it will come out in the next release (5.4)
