Does the order in which components are added to a routine not matter? I thought that this order is the baseline for determining the order in which the different components are executed, with any start/stop rules within individual components merely overwriting this baseline order. There is after all a “move up/down” command for each component, which suggests this order matter.
The reason why I ask this: I have a sound component followed by a text component, and I expected the text to just appear after the sound finishes playing. Instead it is displayed from the beginning. This would imply that, in order to control the order of components (make them appear in series), one would have to condition the start of each one upon the end of another, for instance in my case, define sound.status==FINISHED as the start condition of my text component. And then repeat this logic in a chain for all components of a routine.
Am grateful for any clarification of how this in fact works!
