Keeping notes in desired order in composition module


After a long hiatus of several years from Biblioscape (version 8) I am embarking on a large project that will require extensive use of Biblioscape notes and especially composition module.

My problem is how to keep notes in a particular order once I have placed them in the composition module. I ask that because if I accidentally touch the "Title" tab or "note mark" or "note type" etc, it changes the order of the notes from what I want them to be and then have to re-position them either by drag and drop or the up and down arrow.

This is not such a big deal if there just a hand full of notes but in this case I am using well over 100 notes and it becomes a major problem.

As part of a solution I have numbered major segments of the outline so that they will always be in the correct order. But inside each of these outline sections there are many notes that I want to stay in a certain order.

So the question is: How do I do I retain the order of my notes in the composition module without having to re-position them if they get disarrayed or number them?
