Inserting conversation branch issue

We use conversations sometimes with a range of choices. We like them in a certain order and if we add a choice, we don't seem to be able to insert it at a place of our choosing in the horizontal order.

This is true and a bit unfortunate. Especially changing the order or adding new options in later after an initial authoring. It's also a bit weird that when adding new branches they always come 2nd from left. There is some sort of auto ordering there though. Is there a logic that you can pick out between the order in the editor and the client? I think I remember @tnelson hacking around with this to get it right, but if so it didn't sound like a lot of fun to delete and painstakingly re author in a specific order.

I wonder if a downloaded game file would indicate the ordering in a way that you could swap indices and re upload? I'll mess around with this a bit when I can.

I think even if they can't easily be re-ordered in the editor visually, if the ARIS designers could add a field in the branch settings somehow where you could enter a integer for display order/priority,... that would be enough for us.

I agree, it would be really nice to be able to reorder conversation choices. But I can live with it as is.
