Default How to assign the strongest LOR as number 1?

Hey Everyone,
I am applying this year for residency. I was assigning LORs to the programs. Someone told me that the strongest letter of recommendation should be number 1 when you assign it to the programs, but I have no idea wether how to keep one letter above others as all LORs are present in the order i finalized them in eras and not according to my choice. I am pretty confused regarding this. I ll be very grateful if someone can help me regarding this.

there is no assign the letters that you want the programs to see. You can have as many as you want uploaded, but the max you can assign to the program is 4
