Pre-amble: "All clues and solutions are normal. However, before entry in the grid the down solutions must be treated in a way indicated by elements of the across entries."

I think that I must be being a bit dim here - I have many of the down answers, but am unable to understand how the down entries should be adjusted before entry into the grid. I know that the letters have to be re-arranged somehow, but cannot see any pattern to this. Can anyone help please?

Many thanks.

Alphabetical order of letters in the answer

eg "order" would be input as "deorr"

Thank you so much, what is it in the across clues that enabled you to work this out? I'm still being dim!
To be honest, I didn't notice anything. I just noticed the pattern after solving a lot of across and down answers and seeing that all the crossers were in alphabetical order. I then used this fact to solve even more clues, working out what letters had also to be present in the answers.
