naturally when we SS some processes the order in Recent Captures Tray will be n-5-4-3-2-1, however, when I want to create Image from Template (Select multiple using CTRL) the order in default is also n-5-4-3-2-1 (the last SS positioned in the first step of the template) which is not what i want. I think you should reverse the order into 1-2-3-4-5-n.

I do note for some that this would be a nice change. But it could also be viewed as unwelcome by others.

What would seem a better solution would be to allow the user to select the images in the order they want before choosing to combine in a template. Or to right-click and sort the order before combining.

As workarounds until such time as things are changed, one may very easily click and drag the images into whatever order they like, then choose them and combine them into the template.

Or, click the Create button and choose the template they like, then just click and drag the images from the Recents tray into the placeholders in the template.

 Why might this be an unwelcome change by others?

Currently, one would have to take screen shots of their activity in reverse order.
Allowing them to add them to the wizard in the correct order. How exactly would you accomplish this. Would you undo your previous steps?Capturing them as you undo your work?

Plus, if for some reason you need to rearrange the order of captures.Its easier to do in the combine in template wizard.
Where thumbnails can be scaled up much larger.



The way I see it, reversing the order of import is all thats required.
