Hi

Im wondering if there is a easy way of chaning the order of a single item in the gui editor?
for example:

I have my staus screen window with 10 different stats, i forgot one and it needs to be in 3rd place.

Currently i pull out the 8 bottom items out to some temporary place, put the missing stats at its proper place, then put all those i moved earlier back in.

Is there any way of just moving a item up/down within its parent's listings?

Thanks

To the left of the Save to XML button are buttons for moving things up/down in order relative to their siblings, where, of course, higher in the list is farther back so the last item in the list is on top.

What?  You have to be kidding me!  I'm sure glad someone asked this question.  I have been manually re-ordering things when needed as long as I have been using the GUI Editor.  Thanks to both of you :)
