Spotlight align and distribute reordering problem



Hi All,


i have an issue which is bothering my quite a time already and i would like to know if iam doing something wrong here.


When i use the Spotlight tool "align and distribute" on a horizontal selection of fixtures it works like expected, the fixtures are aligned and distributed in the same order as  they were initially.


However when i do the same on a vertical selection, vectorworks reorders my fixtures seemingly "per type". Please see screenshots attached.

I dont know since when i have this problem exactly but i can say that it is in 2020 the same as in 2021



this happens always regardless which distribution mode i choose. Also depending on the initial position, vectorworks seems to reorder randomly, i dont get the pattern how that happens. pls see additional screenshots


I have several workarounds for that already but iam wondering if iam doing something wrong here maybe or if somebody else experiences the same problem.
