I know for myself, and I think I can speak for others also, with the layers what we are looking for is the ability to rearrange order of the layers listing in the design director and layers manager, and have that list order save with the file, so we don't have to keep rearranging them each time we open the file. When you have a large number of layers, arranging them in ways that make sense to the draftsperson saves a lot of time searching for the right layer to make changes to. See attached screenshots. Currently it seems to be hit or miss if the layers listing order "sticks" when opening a saved drawing file. It appears that each time a file is opened the listing reverts back to alphabetical order, correct?
I understand from the reference manual that the "order" function changes the order in which the layers are drawn. Are you saying that also changes how they are listed?
Thanks for your interest Dave
