When clause and it
I can’t stand it when you do that.
In this sentence, “it” means “you do that”, right?
Then can I use “it” before what it indicates?

The sentence means, someone is doing something, that drives the speaker crazy. I am not sure, where you want to put the it? Can you write an example?

yes you can use it the other way around but it is not very natural.
"when you do that I can’t stand it" . Is best rephrased like this
"whenever you do that I can’t stand it", but the other order is much more natural and fluent.
"I can't stand it when/whenever you do that" select this one it is better
