Order of charts in chart selection bar

Is there a way to edit the position of charts in the chart selection bar?

For instance, I have a chart group of tidal stream charts - "Portland-6" to "portland+6". It would be very useful to have "portland-6" at the far left through to "portland+6" on the right, then I can scroll through them using CTRL & arrow keys.
I tried manually altering the scale in the .kap file in a text editor but didn't seem to work.

TIA

Your idea with changing scales should work.
This is how the "Pilot Charts" are ordered from Jan. to Dec.
Remember to use "bsbfix" after editing the kap files.
Use "Force Full Database Rebuild".
Still not working? Stop O, delete "chartlist.dat". Restart.

Conachair,
Will you share these charts for others?
If you can attach them to a post or will upload them to
Opencpn Beta File Thingie using User:"upload" Pass: "uploadpass"
I can host them.

I have no problem sharing, but they are copyright so there might be an issue offering them up publicly. ...

My PM works though...
