Reordering the data category groups as it appears in the Article Management tab


I want to reorder the data category groups as it appears in the article management tab and while creating the draft article. Even though in the data category setup I was able to order them as per preference but in the draft article creation its just random, it doesn't even follow any pattern, alphabetical or otherwise.
I have tried to deactivate and then reactivate to get the proper order and it worked fine in the data category setup but the order in the draft article creation page is just random.
Any suggestions are welcome.

So this is the workaround I finally applied.
Create dummy data category groups for example category 1, category 2, category 3.
Go to article management tab to verify the sequence, and if it's something like category 2, category 3, category 1, just rename the category group names from category 2 to category 1, category 3 to category 2, so on.
Only after this step add the categories to the category groups.

Drawback of this method - This will always be a post-deployment manual step and a big pain if there are a lot of categories associated to the category groups.
