A category’s number is automatically assigned when the category is created: the category is appended to the end of the file, so its number is simply the highest until another category is added. There is no command in Todo mode to reorder the numbering of the categories in a todo file, but this is possible from the file’s table of categories; Todo Categories Mode.
