[DocMerge] - How does DocMerge order quoted line items by default


I have a quote document in DocMerge for a customer and they want the items to be displayed in the order they appear in the QLI section of the quote. PDF manager seems to be able to get them in the order they appear on the quote. How can i manage to get DocMerge to do this? It seems to just dump them in in a random order.

I dont have a way of using the sort without adding more manual input fields. Using an auto inc field isn't an option either as they re-order the products throughout the quote process (logical ordering based on location in a drawing). Any help appreciated.
