Creation Kit not using LOOT's sorting


So I am converting a copy of Inconsequential NPCs to SSE. I have successfully saved the main plugin with CK and now I have to do the same for the Cutting Room Floor patch. My problem is, CK places the CRF patch higher in the LO than the main plugin. The LO CK is using seems to be based on Date modified. So I have managed to work around this by editing the patch in notepad (now it is the most recently modified file). Just figured I'd post this anyway in case this helps anyone.

This page on the LOOT site explains how load order is determined in Bethesda TES and Fallout games. Until Skyrim the Bethesda game engines used the plugin file date, and the older TES and Fallout games still use date to determine load order. Wrye Bash/Flash can be used to manually change the plugin file date for TES and Fallout files as needed. Mod Managers typically take care of load order for the game engine, but not for the Creation Kit. The CK was never updated to use the "plugins.txt" file and still uses plugin file date.

      Hello there, I've been trying to find a way to color the text for separators. The text color is either black and white, but sometimes it's black on a separator that shares the same color of others that have white text. I would really like to be able to control the color of both the separator bar and it's text.

      Hi everyone,

      I have a portable installation of MO2 on a different drive than the OS, same drive where Skyrim is installed, and since I updated to Windows 11 I can't start Skyrim through MO2 either with or without all mods, SKSE. If I start it from outside of MO2 in any way, it works fine (with SKSE too). What could be the issue?

      Hey everybody, i ran into an issue that i was hoping someone would help me with.
      last night when i was installing my mods from STEP 2.0.0 Guide, my PC accidentally turned off and on again, after it turned back on and i went to open MO2 i found all my mods rearranged alphabetically into the last separator, and all of them were unticked. as seen in the screenshots.
      Is there a way to revert this and not go through the menace of rearranging all of the 310 mods into their separators?
