Want to change the Order of context Variables in the .properties file

I have around 25 context variables in my Job, which are in 3 context groups. I want to arrange them in alphabetical order in the .properties file created after exporting the job, so that any variable is easy to locate. Right now i guess the order is the time at which it was created, so the earliest variable comes on top.
I wish to rearrange them alphabetically, or atleast by context groups. I tried removing it from the Job and then adding it back, also i tried using the check box - Original Order displayed in the context view, but nothing helped. Please let me know if this can be achieved.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Diwakar

Select the context and move it with the up and down arrows.

Hi Janhess,
Actually in the Context Variables list it is displayed alphabetically only, but when i export the job, it gets ordered by Create Date.

So it does. However, I wouldn't want to change the properties file for context values. Best to use context files and a tContextLoad - more flexible.
