Order of indirect and direct object
You have these two examples:
Ne la lui écris pas! (Don't write it to her!)
Ne me le donne pas! (Don't give it to me!)
I see the underline under me le but I don't know how to interpret it. In the first example you have direct object (la) then indirect object (lui). In the second example the reverse: indirect object (me) then direct object (le). Is there a rule here that I'm missing?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using object and adverbial pronouns in negative commands (L'Impératif)"

There is an order for placing multiple pronouns after the subject pronouns in a sentence, and it is as follows -
me , te , se , nous, vous
le, la ,les
This is not true of the imperative affirmative commands when the pronouns come after the verb, separated by a hyphen, lots of lessons on this on Kwiziq...
Hope this helps!
Yes that helps a lot. I had missed that tip.
