If I have alternative descriptions 1,2,3,4 where 1 and 2 have restriction x, and where 1 is set to display once (first time) with command A, and where 3,4 have restriction y, where 3 is set to display once (first time) with command A, a problem arises: If user runs command A twice where restriction x passes, Adrift outputs 1 then 2. If user then runs command A where restriction y passes, Adrift outputs 4, and skips 3.

So, an ability to prioritize in what order alternative descriptions run would be great. Unless this of course is a bug. This would save the time required to create tasks in order to solve this problem.

The priority order is left to right (assuming the compositing is set to "Append this to previous").
3 should be displayed the first time its restriction passes and 4 thereafter.
This definitely looks like a bug to me, possibly the same bug that is causing every second display-once in a sequence to be skipped (bug report #18773)

They are all set to "start description with". But yeah, it definitely looks like the same bug you reported saabie.
