Sort entries in drop down list of filters

Postby Moondawgie » Fri Jun 10, 2011 2:08 pm

Is there an available means by which the drop down list of filters can be sorted so that the list is displayed in alphabetic order?

This list of filters was being displayed in alphabetical order in subsequent releases of Newsbin, but no longer.

This is not essential, but it does help those of us with an abundance of filters.

I second this. Unexpected behavior, i.e. I expect the filters to be sorted the same across the platform, not vary depending on where they are viewed.

Also, not to hijack, but PLEASE bring back in-line editing of the filters. It used to be there and now I have to create a new filter just to edit it, then delete the old one. Seems counter-intuitive and a step backwards.
