How to reorder custom properties in a dynamic block?

A - answer When you create a dynamic block with parameters (custom properties), these parameters are by default ordered in the order you have created them. After you insert (reference) such block, its parameters/properties are listed (e.g. for cycling or in the Properties palette) in the creation order. Logically related parameters (e.g. Width, Height) can be listed "far away" from each other and their subsequent modifications are difficult.

Use the following procedure you can change the order of custom properties and geometric parameters of a dynamic block.

  • Launch the dynamic block editor (BEDIT) and open the requested block.
  • Click on the icon "Parameters Manager" (fx) on the Manage tab in the "Block Editor" ribbon (or type the command PARAMETERS).
  • This will open the palette PARAMETERS MANAGER (Spravce parametru).
  • In the palette, display the column Order (Poradi) - it may be hidden on the right. If it is not displayed, right-click on the heading bar and enable it by checking it. In the dafault state, the Order column is empty.

  • In the row of the particular parameter you want to reorder, click in the Order column and enter 1:

  • All other order values for other parameters will be filled-in automatically.
  • Edit the other order values as needed for other manually ordered parameters/properties.

  • Save the updated block (Close Block Editor).
  • In the Properties palette (Ctrl+1) you can now see the parameters listed in the changed order - e.g. the distance parameter "Vzdalenost2" is now the first one:

This procedure cannot be used to change order of attributes in a standard block.
