Description Telesto 2020-08-25 15:44:39 UTC
Description:
Tracking changes are sorted by action, not by date (by default)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attachment 162927 [details] (assuming there is no author set in Options)
2. CTRL+A
3. Backspace
4. Edit -> Track changes -> Manage

Notice the list not being sorted by date (or by name). I assume sorted by action


Actual Results:
Sorted by action

Expected Results:
Sorted by date? Or I'm looking at it from the wrong perspective (I mostly interested in the last changes). Or is this not THE workflow


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Is this a thing, or I'm the person who is abusing the tracking changes concept?

They are sorted by order of appearance in the document. Quite natural, I think.. if you select the first change and travel through you visit the changes in order.

Valid user case. In my case I simply wanted to undo the change I made (while retaining the changes someone else made)

Sorting has been proposed in bug 87695 about TC's UX, in particular but not only related to the sidebar. I recommend to make this ticket a duplicate. In case people disagree, I vote for sorting per click on the list header, ideally any. Definitely not a new control or option somewhere.
