    2. Click the Add component category button
    3. Enter a name for the category in the Title field
    4. Select a color for the category, the chosen color is used within the sidebar browser and on the layout canvas to indicate the category a component is categorised within.

    To change the order of a Component Category:

    1. Navigate to DX8 > Components > Categories
    2. Click and hold on the Drag handle next to the category you want to move and drag the variable up or down to reposition it. This order is reflected in the sidebar browser
