Darin - thanks for your question. I am going to move this to a more appropriate product community. Where you initially posted it is for questions/comments about the communities in general and not product-specific questions. I assume you are using xDX Designer as part of the Xpedition flow. If not let me know. Thanks again for using the communities.
Just an added note: I moved it to the Xpedition Enterprise>Layout community.
That is correct. xDX Designer VX.1.
In the earlier version(7.9.4) also i felt the same issue.
What i will do means right click on the component then select rearrange properties. This one solved the issue. But I did'nt checked this one with VX1.
I think this one will help you.
