Tag Editor display order in V10 (and v8i)

We need a way to set and lock the display/edit order of tags in V10 and v8i.  I've come across references to a defect report but never a fix or conclusion.  please do not respond that tags are going away in V10 and to use item types.  Item types DO NOT do the same thing as tags.  We have title blocks set up and need to set the tabbing order for them to make sense.  Right now they are different for every user. 

Defect 11259:TR#306568

  • We've got the same issue and we're not moving to CE until there is a better interface to edit item types. We don't trust that an update wont break tags again as they were before U1 and wouldn't translate to AutoCAD attributes. I like the item types and i'm even good with the inserting fields to create the same output. The only issue is editing said item type data is impossibly difficult as the only access is the properties menu for the cell the fields are attached too.

    Sadly this is one of the few things possibly the only thing holding us back from CE we've requested a better interface for editing them liken to the tag editor or a way to lock the text field data when it's inserted so that it remains a text field even if a user changes the text with the word processor. So for there hasn't been any progress that i'm aware of but if other users have this issue and want to toss in there suggestions it might help.
