    Initially I thought this would be a problem to implement – should a data file author dictate to a user what order the entries appear?

    Thinking more about it however, I think the solution here is to let the user decide. Instead of the data file author rearranging the entries in the data files, I think it would be better to allow the user to rearrange the selections in their list.

    As it is, I have been doing this manually by adding spaces at the beginning of an entry. For some reason the output ignores the leading spaces, so it doesn't change the view at all, but when it alphabetizes it sorts the spaces before the rest. I just put 2 spaces for Sargent types, 1 for basic models and none for wargear, and it sorts much better.

    Adding a "ranking" value for each entry would allow easy custom ordering. All models start with a 0, all upgraded weapons start with a 1, all default wargear starts with a 2, etc. and then it can "sort" by the ranking rather than alpha by name. Might be easier than creating a folder system.

    Default weapons do work if the entry group is min 0/max 0. The problem at the moment is that if you want more than one default, there is no way to enter it. It would be good to allow a number of defaults up to the minimum selections of the entry group.

    I will look into this in the future, but for now it does not have a high impact, so it’ll have to wait.

    Simple solution in the catalog itself. Make each 'default' option min 1, and then add a modifier of -1 min selections to it. It will start selected, and then be removable/swapable. Leave the actual group default blank.
