That won't work unless you're on the card with Index = 1

No, it's really just one thing. I want to do both. I want to
find/goto the card with Index = 1, then sort by the index of that cd.
I just want to re-order a stack of cards to the numeric order that is
in their custom property, but you have to be on the right card in order
to do that. I'd rather not have to go to the card and just sort by the
index, but that doesn't seem to give any useful order.
