This trick will save me hours in the furture: Auto ordering variables

Today I learned a trick that would have saved me hours had I known about it years ago.

From time to time you find yourself working on a catalog item with many variables. Sometimes those variables orders are to close together to allow for new things. It would be great if you just press a button and have the order be fixed at 100s. You could write something custom... Or you could just follow these steps;

  1. Preview Item
  2. Right-click header
  3. Configure variables
  4. Change the order of one variable
  5. OK
  6. Change the order back.

Now the variables are spaced in 100s
