Reorder Blockout Types
On the main Definitions window, highlight a type, then click the up/down arrows.

Hide a Blockout Type
There are two ways to hide a type so it is no longer an option. 

  • On the main Definitions window, select the item, then click Hide.
  • On the Edit Definition window, check the Hidden box.

We recommend also moving the item to the bottom of the list. To unhide an item, open the Edit Definition window and uncheck the Hidden box.
