Hi Mircea

I think you have to careful about how you are selecting. If you select the
first CDS in the sequence and then use 'Select'->'Same key' and then use the
Auto Create Gene Names option the numbering will be from left to right. Then
you do the same for 'gene' (using the same start and increment values as
before) and for the RNAs. The numbering then should be consistent.
