    The roles listed by NMR are a filterable multidimensional array, so you could try something like this in your theme’s functions.php:

     * Sort the NMR roles
     * @param: $roles an array of all available roles with ID=>Name
     * @return: array
    function kia_sort_roles( $roles ){
    	if( is_admin() ) {
    		$array_lowercase = array_map( 'strtolower', $roles );
    		array_multisort( $array_lowercase, SORT_ASC, SORT_STRING, $roles );
    		return $roles;
    add_filter( 'nav_menu_roles', 'kia_sort_roles' );

    Keep in mind that NMR displays the roles left to right before starting a new line.

    So the roles will come out like:

    A B C D
    E F G H

    and not

    A D
    B E
    C F

    I hope that helps!

    You’re welcome! I’m glad it worked. I probably ought to display them that way by default.
