Rearrange Icon / Tag Groups in Map Index

I'd like to suggest the inclusion of the capability of manually rearranging the groups of Icons and Tags in the Map Index. It becomes really inconvenient to have to live with the groups in the order they were created, especially when there are a lot (20+) and some of the groups would logically make sense to be near to each other because they are conceptually related.

Yes I agree. At the very least the management of icons should be more consistent with the way map parts are handled, and both should allow both alphabetical and manual sorting of groups/folders.

I actually found a way to successfully do this in several of my maps. It's not for the faint of heart, but it is doable if it is something that is particularly important or necessary. I had over 40 different groups, and it was necessary for me to have the same order of topics across several maps to keep my sanity :)

If you need to know how it is done, let me know and I'll tell you offline (too much to paste here).
