Moving elements in the Custom type placment editor seems to have no impact.

Following in debuger is crazy.

Looking in DB, the settings column ->ContentTypeSettings.Placement.Editor shows values with repeated positions ?

Is there a solution when you have not creted the fields of your custom type in the correct order ?

Creating a placement file ? Whre, which name ?

This is this bug: http://orchard.codeplex.com/workitem/18894. If you have details about how to reproduce, that would really help.

Workaround is to use a placement file, yes, for example in your theme.

Ok thanks, I discovered the bug later digging about this. I will try the placement file but some comment in the issue say it is not working.....
