A button called Reorder Attributes will be added to the Channel Box -> Edit menu. Clicking this button will open up an ui that will allow the user to drag and drop the attributes to reorder. Attributes are deleted in the new order and the undo commands is then ran to redo the attributes in the order preferred. There is an option to sort the attribute list in alphabetical order by right clicking the list to display the order menu.
