I've spent ages changing the various sections of the default.cdf, and my 60+ components are now appearing in alphabetical order in the IDE, but they still appear in some apparently random (but always the same) order when displayed in a component dialogue.
I suspect this is the order in which they were created, but where is this order stored? Surely there is some way to change it other than delete all my components and recreate them one by one from scratch in the correct order? (and then again, to varying degrees, every time I have to add a new component to the project).
Am I missing something obvious here?

Also, there is no way to automatically make them alphabetized as one doesn't always want them to be listed in that fashion.
Instead, to re-arrange them, do a Ctrl+drag in the IDE to make the selected item a sub-component, or use Shift+drag to simply re-arrange the component or to bring the component up a level.

I didn't know about shift+drag, thanks for that, but it hasn't made any difference unfortunately. I restored my original default.cdf and then dragged the components into the correct order in the IDE, but they are still a jumble when diplayed by the component dialogue. All it seems to have done is what I did before manually in the ini file

By the way, what version of IS are you using? Is it 6.31?

If you create a custom dialog with a list box I think you could simply set the "sort" flag in the list box resource.
Another workaround would be a script created component set: duplicate your file components as script components, where you can control the order in which they are created.
