Description

5 years ago
I (at least) can usually find variables in scopes faster by knowing the relative positioning of their declaration. It confuses me, for example, to see DebuggerUI before EXPORTED_SYMBOLS, which in turn is followed by FileUtils.

A quick pref would make my life (and possibly other weirdos) easier.
I'm not sure if we should expose this setting in the gear menu or not.

Did you check whether the order returned by the protocol meets your expectations?

So far. I'm not entirely sure it will meet other people's expectations though.
I won't add a menuitem in the frontend ui because of this.

Okay.

Although we should expose UI for this if others find it useful, too.
