    You could use the column-editor (Alt+c) to prefix incrementing numbers onto the start of each line.

    In doc 1, use odd numbers: 1,3,5… with leading zeros appropriate for your data. In doc 2, use even numbers: 2,4,6…

    Then copy both docs into a new doc, doc 3.

    Sort doc3 using an integer-ascending sort.

    Finally, remove the prefixes you added by column-selecting them and then delete.

    Your final results will then be in doc 3.

    (That was rather brief, so if you need more help than that, post again.)
