Layer combination ordering in AC26 vs AC27

rm
Expert

I am creating a new AC27 template, using my AC26 template as a starting point. 

 

In the Layer Combinations, up to AC26, when adding a layer combination, you could add a "prefix" number to have your combinations show up in the order you wanted them to show up in the list. See the attached sample of my AC26 Layer Combinations.

 

However in AC27, when creating a new layer combination, no matter what numeric "prefix" I add to the name of the Layer Combination, the new combination gets moved way down the list, with no ability to order it or group it with other Layer Combinations.

 

Is this a new "Feature" of AC27 Layer Combinations? I hope I am just missing how to get the same type of results in ordering Layer Combinations in AC27 as was available in previous versions.

 

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

This is interesting, but I can't replicate it.

I just opened my 22 template in 27.

The layer order is now wrong as per my previous images.

But when I create new combinations starting with numbers, they slot right in where they should go.

 

I wonder if it is another Mac/Windows difference?

I guess if that is the case, we would need GS to offer their comments here.
