Wed 24 Jan 2024 09:15:37 PM UTC, original submission:  

when scanning through a list of object properties, it's helpful if they're in alphabetical order. get() appears to alphabetize in subsections, first listing all of the properties inherited from a base property set, then listing object specific ones, while set() alphabetizes the full list. e.g. in the following get() resets alphabetization after 'visible':


>> hf = figure(1);
>> get(hf)
