Split Transactions Lines Changed Order

I set up my payroll check in split transaction so that entry would be easy, each line would follow the same item title as on my payroll, so I could quickly enter amounts from viewing my payroll statement without bouncing around. I had to add a few new items to my payroll over time, such as sick time and overtime payroll.

Now every line is all mixed up. The two salaries, line 1 overtime and 2 regular, are at the top. I'd prefer the regular above the overtime but I can live with that. However, the next line should be Salary:Sick, but it is now moved down to the bottom, line 11. The Retirement 401k is now on line 3 below the two Salary lines and it should be at the bottom, line 11. State tax is now below Fed Tax and the other things line ss and medicare are moved also.

The whole list changed without my input. I don't understand why Quicken chose to move everything around randomly. I need to know how to move the lines back to their original line number.
