    Sorted Parameters not sorted in Project

    I've got a bunch of Families where I've organized/sorted the parameters in the Family Editor - using the Move Up/Move Down buttons.
    However, when I load them into a Project, the parameters are not only not sorted, but some are noteven in the same Grouping.
    Anyone know what the rule is for sorted parameters?
    I suspect it's because when I loaded the new family into a project, I used the "Override the existing version and its parameter values" option, but it doesn't seem consistent.
    Do I have to purge out the old versions first?
    Or does this only happen if there are placed instances?

    Did you Edit Family or open the family through the menu?

      Hmmm.. Good point. I've done both. Maybe that's why it seems inconsistent.
      I'll have to try again and pay attention this time.
      But, either way, if the parameters are sorted in the Family Editor just before I Load into Project, shouldn't they stay sorted in the Project?

        You would think...

        I've had the same issue but haven't really dug into it beyond that.
