Sure- quite easy. Just insert the ELSE IF where it pops in
(at the bottom) then pop over to your favorite text editor.
You can juggle the order all you want in a few seconds, since
they are all bunched together in one area.

Around here we use "vi" to solve all kinds of things like this.

Once you get used to the syntax it becomes very productive.
Do be careful though- you can create corrupt files if you are not careful.
