Move <all other values> in TOC

When you symbolize data on categories, sometimes you symbolize a few unique values and assign the rest to <all other values>. In the TOC, this entry is always listed first in the layer. Other values can be reordered with arrow keys on the layer properties symbology tab, but not this one. For me, <all other values> is usually a collection of less important features in the view. Usually, I would rather see it at the bottom of the list than the top. Or sometimes, I want to rename its label from <all other values> to something else and then I might want to insert the renamed value alphabetically into the list of values. Anyway, I would like this flexibility to be available.

+ possibility to move it to heading
It's often a lesser important collection of values and I want it to appear that way in the legend.
Rather than using the "All Other Values" category you could turn that category off so it doesn't get shown, group all of your "other values" into their own group, edit the label and adjust its postion in the list of classes. Not as automatic as letting "All Other Values" pick up any unused classes, but it works now.
Just got off the phone with ESRI support as I wanted to do this very same thing. At least having the option to move it to the bottom would be a big improvement.

Tim, looks like this is how it works in ArcGIS Pro
