Allow re-ordering of Variables

Just let us re-order variables! Even adding variables to a group doesn't affect their order!

    Here in 2024โ€”please, please add this feature! It's so hard to keep track of groups when you can't reorder, and it makes it really hard to focus on what I'm working on as a neurodivergent person (ADHD).

    Please Webflow, this is essential and would make my life so much easier!

    Frankly, variables are just short of useless without the ability to properly organize them.

    Reordering within folders would really help! Not being able to sort the order of each variable as you go decreases the productivity of this feature and makes it difficult to maintain organization should you need to change things down the line. Please add it. ๐Ÿ™

    Webflow! Step your game up! We should be able to reorder variables AND CMS ITEMS! Let's see some hustle happening on the development end of things, lest you get overtaken by the incredibly fast shipping team over at FRAMER.

    The more I read the comments about webflow the more obvious it becomes they're not a user-centric/customer-centric organization. It makes me wonder if they put all the possible features customers ask for on a board and then toss darts while blindfolded and build whatever they hit.

    This is a must. The feature is very cool but it's very annoying to have everything unordered.

    Pretty please.

    This is definitely something that drives me crazy.

    I've found a way to work around this by adding existing variables into a new group in the preferred order. E.g., If you had an unorganized group of variables called 'colors,' you can rename those vars as 'colors2/variable' in the order you want them listed, and then rename them from 'colors2/variable' to 'colors/variable.'

    It's still unbelievably annoying to do this, but seems to be the only way to reorder them.

    Why did y'all make a whole a** redesign and introduced all these new features but didn't give us the ability to sort and order our variables? SMFH why do I pay so much for this crap...

    So weird. This is such a tiny bit of front end dev and reordering colors has already been a wish for years. Can't comprehend why they would completely ignore the user wishes when rebuilding the whole feature anyway.

    Rarely met a company that is so indifferent to user feedback and so not attuned to their customers needs as webflow. Absolutely tone-deaf.

    Again Finsweet with a tiny dev team has to come fix it. Baffling.
