Actually the place in which a new dictionary appears seems random. It is not even the order in which entered.

Also seeing the same issue. The Languages group is also appearing in a random order (either alphabetical or creation order)

Also seeing this issue, except that the items appear to be randomly ordered. Looking at the code in the source, no ordering is applied to the dictionary items.

The loadDictionary file needs to be altered to apply ordering to the tree. Should be a pretty simple one for a quick pull request.

It looks like they're being ordered by the id column, which used to be numeric (so they were in the order they were added in). In 7.3, id is now a unique id, so when it's ordering, it's ordering by the GUID, which is effectively a randomised order. Am prepping a PR for this now.
