Hi guys,
does anybody know, how to change the order of entries in the legend? Changing the order of the plots is not possible, because the black dashed lines have to be on top.

You can change the order, but for that you need the handle for each line. For example, plot two lines
p1 = plot(rand(1,10));
p2 = plot(rand(1,10));
Now you can use these handles to set the order of legends
legend([p2 p1], {'P2', 'P1'})
%^ this order decide how it will appear in legend
