TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I understand how to change the sort order of things (in the styles pane and various ribbon tabs, such as the Table Tools Design > Table Styles section) -- use the Manage Styles button, the Recommend tab, and change the priority level.
But... *some* of the styles are not changeable. That is, when I select them, the priority buttons (Move Up, Move Down, etc.) are disabled. This seems true for all the tables (which are the ones I want to sort), and various other styles where I can't detect a pattern.
And somehow my custom tables (Alert-1, Alert-2, Alert-3) got automatically assigned weird values: last for Alert-1 and Alert-3, but priority 1 for Alert-2, which causes them to be misordered in the ribbon. And I can't find a way to correct that.
Alert-1 is based on Table Grid; Alert-2 is based on Alert-1, and Alert-3 is based on Alert-2. So I certainly don't know how the odd priority orders got set.
