Alphabetize notes checkmark list

We keep our forgery list in Notes, and I would like to alphabetize the list, however, the list is a ‘checkmark” list, and exporting the list, sorting it, and pasting it back in removes the check marks, although right now on iOS 15.0.2 I am unable to even specify the note I want to access… but in general, is this going to be possible or will I have to manually convert the list back to a checklist each time?
