Navbar widget limitations

Richard Gaskin via use-livecode
I've had growing frustration with adding items and changing itemNames  
of new items in the Navigation Bar widget. Today I finally took the  
time to attempt and recreate/troubleshoot the issue which led me to  
filing two bug reports.

One major limitation I discovered was that the widget only seems to  
support up to 9 items. When a 10th item gets added, the correlation  
between item and itemName seems to disappear. My suspicion is that the  
itemNames are being sorted alphabetically rather than numerically so  
once you hit double-digits the order breaks down.

Can any Navbar users confirm or comment on my findings, or offer some  
sort of workaround?

just made a test on my Mac 10.13.5, LC 9 and I had no problem with 15 items in the navigator widget!

yes, confirmed on my Mac 10.13.5 and LC 9.
Here the order shifted even funkier!?

But this action makes the inspector completely unusable however,
with 15 items the inspector grows to almost 1900 pixels in width.
