How do I change the order of properties in Macro

PostTue Jul 10, 2018 10:35 pm

When I create a Macro, I click on the properties I'd like to export and make them available as controls in the inspector. I can rename them, but how do I change the order in which they appear?
I am making a custom fusion title, there is e.g. a control for text and background color. I'd like them in this order, not the other way around.
Thank you

Open the .setting file in a programmer's text editor such as Notepad++. You can change the order of the inputs by cutting and pasting in the list. Be careful not to miss the trailing curly brace and comma. Here you can see an input selected:

While you're in there, you can change the names of the inputs to be easier to identify in expressions. In this case, I might change 'Input4 = ' to 'YDefocusSize = '
