It was my understanding the order in which processes are placed is the order in which they should be printed. This does not seem to be working.
In this image the order should be blue, green, red, and yellow. But the travel paths between each part seem to be kind of random sometimes printing 2 layers on one part before it goes to the next part. Tried all sorts of things with the same result. Layer by Layer or even with print object by object does not even change anything. Using version 4.1.1 also tried 4.0.1 with same result.

Thanks for your factory file. The process ordering is working how it has since this feature was originally introduced in version 4.0.1. The printing order will be adhered to with the exception that the last part printed at the maximum clearance height will get printed at the start of the next sequence. For example having 4 processes ordered 1234 will net you the following sequence with sequential printing selected as your printing method:
I'm glad to submit a feature request on your behalf for a further change to follow a more strict 1234, 1234, 1234, etc... sequence. Perhaps this could be a toggled optimization option in a future release.
