Hi Juan Carlos,

 

Custom drop down lists can only be organised alphabetically.

 

You can use a few tricks to get a custom order:

  • If your list in no larger than 10 items, you can order them by prefixing the value with a number:

  • If it's larger than 10, then you could substitute letters instead of numbers (i.e. A. Zulu).
