Messed order in merge component

Hi Guys
Is it a bug or expected behaviour?
Merge component doesn’t keep the connections order, even if they are re-connected at proper order.

Check out the red fields.

Data trees strike again! Merge combines branches and it frequently happens that the inputs you want to combine in a single list have different paths, so they end up on different branches. There is no perfect solution, it can be very frustrating… One thing that works in some cases is to flatten the inputs to Merge.

Hi Joseph
Thanks for the tip. Flattening all inputs restored the order.
I do agree with you it can be frustrating… luckily in this case I didn’t care about the data structure, just the displayed order.

The Entwine component will let you do a merge+flatten in one go.

Cool, thanks.
