Feature type sort order in drop-down list

In a feature class, I have a field that controls the feature type and, therefore, the symbology.  This field uses a coded-value domain list that is carefully sorted.  I can get the legend to use the domain sorting without difficulty.  The difficulty in sorting comes with the drop-down menu in Collector where the user changes the feature type.   When I create a new feature and add it to a new ArcGIS on-line map, I end up having to go into the “Edit - Manage New Features” and reorder items to get the drop-down list in the same order as the legend - this can be tedious if there are many feature types. I have also used the REST API to reorder the types - this is quicker, but could create other problems.

 

Can this reordering be done in ArcMap when the feature class is created?
