All items in the side panels of the Studio workspace appear in the order in which you add them, with each new item appended at the bottom of the list. For some items, the order in the list is critical and can be changed, for others not.

Below is a high-level summary of the key points that you need to keep in mind.

Studio items Is order critical? What’s affected Can you change it? Comments
Assets No Nothing No You can sort assets by column headings in the Assets panel.
Scenes No The order of scenes in all drop-down lists throughout Studio Yes You can drag individual scenes to change the order. The order of scenes in the output, however, is defined by transitions.
Layers and Elements Yes Interactive elements, which must be the frontmost ones on the screen Yes

To change the order, select the Show All checkbox and drag the layers as desired. For more details, see Elements and Layers.

Actions Sometimes Execution order


The order of actions matter in certain cases, for example, when you need to update a counter value and display it on the screen.

If you select the At Time and On Exit events, they will change the original order of actions in the list.  

For details, see Actions.

Transitions No Nothing No Transitions in the Events & Actions panel are performed based on the logic you define. If multiple conditional statements evaluate to true, Studio will randomize the transitions with equal probability.
