CODE Designer - field sort order



fixed

I have been using Code Designer for nearly all my screen work.  There is a
very nice feature that allows me to resort all my fields.  There is no
choice as to the sort order.  

My problem is that the sort is different than the one used by SDA.  In Code
Designer its non-hidden fields in row/col ascending order then hidden fields
(in an order sequence I have not yet understood).  In SDA its hidden fields
first (with the same confusing order) then non-hidden fields (in row/col
order ascending).

Here is why the difference is a problem.  I was going to create a external
DS for my screen and then overlay fields I can use to clear several input
and output fields at once with out clearing the entire screen.  I would need
to specify specific positions (using the DS name) for this to work and it
would have prevented me from keying nearly 100 fields in my "CLEAR"ing DS.
If another programmer, who will not use Code Designer for one reason or
another, sorts in SDA, then my positioning is all messed up.  

Is there something going to be done to Code Designer to make it sort as SDA
does (or vise-versa)? 

Thank you,
