In this quick episode, we are going to take a look at the options we have to reorder different parts of our document types.

When we view a document type, you will see the option to “Reorder” in the top right corner.

If we select this option, then we have the ability to reorder tabs and specific properties on our tabs by clicking and dragging the move icon.

The other thing to note, is based on sort order. As you can see in our reorder view, we have small numeric counters next to our tabs. These are the numbers in which the tabs are listed.

In the next chapter we will look over document type compositions and property inheritance. Even though we cannot click and drag inherited properties we can still adjust their placement using these numeric fields. Keep this in mind moving forward.

When you are done reordering, be sure to click the “I am done reordering option” and save your document type.

If we move to the content section, you will see the tabs and properties have been updated to reflect our reordered doc types.
