Configuration of tip box metadata display order


I was wondering if there is a way to configure the ordering of metadata appearing in the tip displays.

I see that order of appearance of the tip metadata is defined in the final exported JSON file. However, the ordering is not consistent between builds and as a result sometimes the metadata contained in the tip box is hard to follow. For instance, I remove special characters and spaces from strain names to avoid issues with IQtree but I retain the original unaltered name in the metadata file. I would want this field to occur first in the list of items in the tool tip, followed by things like submitter, ha clade, etc.

Is there a way to do this?

Hi @matthew.wersebe,

Unfortunately there isn’t a way to do this yet, see related discussion: Is Auspice hover-over information display configurable?
