Changing default content type in a Document Library

When adding several content types to a document library (SPDocumentLibrary) I would like to decide which content type is the default type, and also in which sequence they occur, i.e. in the New Document interface.

I have searched but couldn't find any information about how to modify the default content type and the sequence of content types in a document library. I found this blog saying it cannot be done.

Conclusion: It is possible - just read this blog.

In Document library settings, look at content types. there is a link to change order of the new button. It's just below conten types that your have selected.

If it worked it would be great. But sometimes it simply don't - and there is very little you can do about it :-(
