Customizing the display order in the 'Auto-Type Entry Selection' dialog would be more convenient if an entry's Auto-Type tab included an option to reorder the Custom Auto-Type sequences (e.g. via a context menu, hot-keys, or graphical up/down arrows).

This feature would be particularly valuable to users that consolidate custom auto-type sequences into a single entry.

    • For 'Perform auto-type' and 'Auto-type selected entry', if an entry contains multiple sequences that match a window's title, the order of the auto-type sequences in the entry determines which keystroke sequence will be typed.
    • For 'Global auto-type' the order of the auto-type sequences in an entry determines the order of some or all of the choices presented in the 'Auto-Type Entry Selection' dialog.

    There does not appear to be a convenient method for reordering the custom auto-type sequences in an entry. One can either make a list reflecting the desired order, and add the sequences in that order; or one can transpose two entries by copying & pasting via a temporary sequence or sticky note. When modifying existing sequences in entries, either method is likely to require multiple Add, Edit and Delete steps.

    A method of reordering auto-type sequences such as the available in the Trigger dialog, or a copy & paste method for complete auto-type sequences would be very helpful.

    I've now added up/down arrow buttons for reordering auto-type associations in the entry editing dialog.

    Here's the latest development snapshot for testing:
