IV11 Reorder Positional Representations in Browser

Is there a way to reorder positional representations in the browser. I'd like to keep them in order of how the assembly will function. That way, it's easier to create the animation in Studio. See attached image.

yes, I'd like this too... I don't think it is currently possible.

I don't believe it is now possible to sort/rearrange Design Views,
Positional Representations, or Level of Details.

I have logged your request in the Inventor Assemblies Wish list (798925).

This is not supported but it is a good enhancement (logged by Hovhannes).
One possible work-around would be to make use of the copy capability
(Right-click on the rep and then Copy). This will place the copy at the end
of the list. Just copy them in the sequence you want them to appear and then
delete the originals.

Joe

This sure would be great right now... (4-5 years later)

Thank god someone at Autodesk was smart enough that as long as you copy and keep the name the same the IDW views associated with that don't go up in smoke.

I use design view reps for assembly steps for the floor people. There are many times when I need to add operations (view reps) or move them around,etc...

I would also like to express my interest in such an option!
