    [FEATURE REQUEST] Add "line numbers" to left side of Components tab in blueprints

    When you have many components to a BP and need to know which element it is, it'd be nice to have numbers on the left, like in most IDE's and text editors. Also, can we PLEASE have the ability to re-order components by dragging them, like in UMG?

    Just how many components do you have to require numbering them?? Anything more than 10 and I'd say that you're doing something very wrong.

      In my case, the actor is a children's playset (a tower) with lots of connection points around it where pieces can be added. Each point is a sphere, which I have added as a child component of the root component.

      Each tower is unique in many ways. For certain towers (that have dozens of possible connections points) there are times where I need to access a specific point (like, child component #26) in my blueprint to handle a certain case for certain attachment pieces, and have to count from 0 down in the list to find which 'element' it is. Honestly it's not a huge inconvenience, I just thought it would be a nice thing to have.

        you might have to wait for this. meanwhile, how about using naming conventions like STM_ etc? sure it won't work with hierarchies but that's some visual clue at least

          True I could go through and re-name them, but there are ~21 towers and many have 20-30 components. Just thought line numbers would be nice
