Print order of multi-state return

I just completed a multi-state corporate return of 483 printed pages. As these pages print out from the downloaded pdf, I find they are only somewhat sorted. I prefer to present my clients like this one, a complete set of pages for each entity. The federal return should be presented in the order described by their instructions. All worksheets, statements, and depreciation schedules labelled and related to Federal should follow that return when printed. I found the section of depreciation schedules was an alphabetical series of all federal and state schedules. I had to pluck out the state schedules and reunite them with the state returns. At the front of the pdf were worksheets for federal and all states, interspersed with form 4797 by state. These I also had to pluck out of your queue and reunited with the appropriate entity. I do understand that I can print one state at a time, but if you can sort it there, why can't you sort it in the preparer's full copy? Doesn't seem logical. I would like to see more efficiency in the multi-state process and the fixed asset/depreciation entry.
