Content Type picklist values order when uploading to Public Library


When I try to upload file and publish it into a Public Library with Restricted Content Types, the list with available Content Types is displayed in completly random order. Look at the screen:

Content Type Order

I can't find any option to manage this picklist. I thought that it might be ordered by Created Date or ID and I can make some workaround but...

Name, Created Date, Last Modified Date, Id (all records created and modifed by the same user: Pawel Marszalek)

There is no relationship between available Content Type picklist order and these fields. The question is - how to make the list to be displayed in alphabetical order?

Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

Given that content is a sort of 'bolt on' module for the platform I highly doubt that there's anyway you could control this.

They seem to be ordered by Created Date for "Termination Notice" through to "Deeds", but there must be some other kind of grouping applied first. If anybody knows the details of the query used—and you can control the relevant fields—then you may be able to control the display, but otherwise I'd say you're out of luck.
