I created a page with 30 elements on it. I wrote all my
enumerations for the screen fields eg:

!define SERVER_ID 12
!define SERVER "Field ${SERVER_ID}"

Then changed the tab order. When I looked at the fields
again the Fieldnum column has changed aswell. I had to
rewrite all my enumerations :(

Changing tab order should not change Field names.

    The InstallOptions plugin sets the tab order of the fields according to their names.
    e.g., "Field 1" comes before "Field 2", etc.
    Hence, changing tab order implicitly means that the field names change.
    This is not a bug.

    Yes, but if I create a mixture of labels and controls the controls are scattered in between the labels.
    Could you keep the labels at the end of the "Field n" list as they don't have any effect. So that when I have to change the order (because I have added a new control) it is simpler.

    Oh, I'm not the developer of this project.
    In fact, I think this project has been abandoned by the developer- he has not released any new files in almost two years and doesn't seem to be reading the bug and feature request trackers.

    Fair enough - I'll stop moaning then ;)
