Allow Editing of the Order of Dropdown Entries in Asset Custom Fields

We have a few Custom Asset Fields where we use the Dropdown Entry option for the field type. The problem is, when I go in to edit those Dropdown Entry Answers (ex. Add answer).

I like having my dropdown entries listed in alphabetical order, which is disrupted when I have to add a new answer. So, to have these answers listed in order, I have to copy and paste them into the new positions.

(ex. Asset Custom Field Dropdown Entry Answer #1 = Beta, but when I go to add the new answer, Alpha, I filled in Alpha as Dropdown Entry Answer #1, and Answer #2 = Beta).

But I recently discovered that doing this causes a HUGE problem, because all my assets that use that custom field, now have different Dropdown Entry Answer listed in that custom field, (ex. Asset Custom Field Answer - Beta, has now been changed to Answer - Alpha).

This would all be a lot easier if we could just click and drag the answers into rearrange them into place, and we wouldn't run the risk of resetting the custom field values for all of our assets.

        Any movement on this? I'm just starting to use the product and this would be of great help.

        YES!! I thought the same when setting mine up. I'm glad I saw the issue with what would happen if I changed an answer later. This would make life much easier and less tedious and make more sense. An easy way to alphabetize the list without having to delete them all and re-add them in the order you want would be great.
