Can I reorder the legend entries for gscatter

I am making a gscatter plot where the groups are depths. I want the depths to be in order from shallowest to deepest in the legend (in this case = S, 1T, 10B, 4B, 1B). Can I control that somehow? Right now the legend is just the default.
f2=figure(2)
gscatter(TA_est,TA_meas,strtrim(height))
hold on;
plot(alk,alk)
xlabel('LIAR TA','fontsize',16)
ylabel('Measured TA','fontsize',16)

Yeah, just redo the legend manually with the handles in the desired ordered...
...
hGS=gscatter(TA_est,TA_meas,strtrim(height)); % save the GS line handles array
hLG=legend([hGS(...)],' S', '1T', '10B', '4B', '1B');
where [hGS(...)] represents the handles to the array of lines in the order of depth desired associated with the original order. You don't give the data so can't actually determine what that order would be.

So I did this:
hGS=gscatter(TA_est,TA_meas,strtrim(height));
idxOrderWanted = [1 5 3 2 4]
hLG=legend([hGS(idxOrderWanted)],'S', '1T', '10B', '4B', '1B');
BUT when I replotted the figure it looks like the data is now mislabeled. The points are all the same but the colors now match different IDs...
