Hello,

There isn't such kind of built-in feature, but you can arrange the item's order manually, for example:
In the custom post type settings, just above the "Save" button, there is a setting: Admin Menu position after

More help:

'menu_position'
(int) The position in the menu order the post type should appear. To work, $show_in_menu must be true.

Hey Luo, sorry it took me so long to get back.

I've tried and I've used the link you sent, but I can't do it.

Can you help?

(I don't see, or don't have "custom post type settings, just above the "Save" button, there is a setting: Admin Menu position after.")

Thank you.

Sorry for the misunderstandings, you are talking about the dropdown menu of Add content menu.
There isn't such kind of built-in feature within Toolset plugins or WordPress core, I have searched it in Google, found some related threads:
