Unless it's somehow possible for the displayed behaviors to get out of order, then the numbers seem somewhat useless. I think this is a big step backwards from displaying the number of lines in the behavior script

Hi Mark,

actually the problem was that if you use the number of lines of the behaviors and you have a couple of behaviors stacked then the space needed for the behaviors would run into the text. The current solution was the one which used the least space. If you look in the Project Browser at "Message Box" or "revIDEProjectBrowser" that have two behaviors that the spacing for between the behaviors is minimal to save space, also that is the reason why they are oval so you can reduce the spacing between behaviors.

I agree that counting from 1 to 10 is not really a big help, could have been greek letters instead, but what you gather from the number of lines of the behavior script escapes me.

Kind regards
