It's quite annoying when you need to need to add another variable to a script, but it only lets you append to the end. They are always presented in a consistent order, so it's a bit of an artificial limitation that one cannot change this presentation.

Say I have these

  1. groupName
  2. groupNumber
  3. thingName
  4. thingTime

...and I want to add groupCoordinator, it becomes disorganised. Long input lists are worse because you may have related inputs that don't even show on the same page (it only fits ~4 at a time, for me). A button/link to sort by name would also be helpful.

To work around it, I have to add an extra input slot, then edit existing variables from the bottom up to create an adjacent space. Tokens in values cannot be dragged & dropped, nor cut & pasted, which can introduce errors.

It just doesn't make sense to have an ordered list where the order is immutable.
