Icon Rules question

Is there a way of creating icon rule sets with multiple icons but have them show in the column in a specific order - not alphabetical by name?

An example: Icons "letter A" and "unfinished" show up opposite of how I want them. (unfinished anthology). I have specific columns that are blank and hold a lot of icon rules. I like to have the icons line up when I scroll down, but I can't do that with multiple icons in a rule set.

I have "unfinished anthology" "unfinished omnibus" and "unfinished". I want the "unfinished" icon to be first and the other icons to follow.

I know that the rules with individual icons can be moved around in the rules list so that I can choose which icons show before others, but when I am dealing with a single rule set with more than one icon, I can't set the order they appear.

Do I need to just rename them?

Many things Alphabetize when processes, which is why I sometimes Prefix a name with a Digit (Number) 9AlwaysLast, 0BeforeEverythingelse
Why not change just the one you want first?

Might also be able to put them in a specific order with the advanced icon rules. Not sure what version they were added in, but the if/then/else statements are a bit more intuitive to figure out than the old template.

Not up to the advance icon rules. lol. I will just go in and put that digit in the names...It's not a problem that comes up too often.

From what I can see, the icons are shown in the order the icon rules are defined. And it doesn't matter whether I use simple or advanced rules. And as a test, I just changed the order of the rules and the order of the icons changed to match. This is definitely not alphabetical.

I think that Rellwood was talking about the option to use multiple icons in a single rule.

Yeah, it was the multiple icons. I fixed it with the changing of the names.
