PB 5.0.3.7

Sort order has been addresses quite a few times earlier but I don't seem to find anything on this error although it is quite obvious.

Multi word thoughts are not sorted correctly. I would expect a sorting order like the following:

AB something
ABA something
ABB something
ABC something

but PB is sorting the thoughts this way:

ABA something
ABB something
ABC something
AB something

I have the "Arrange thoughts by" = "Name"

If you only have one word "AB, ABA, ABB, ABC" the sorting is correct.

Hans and Dys,

Thank you for pointing this out.  Our engineers are aware of the thought sorting issues and requests and hope to enhance these features in a future release.

Thank you,
Matt

Well, now you know, Dyslucksia. Don't be helpful, or the posts might get deleted. If you REALLY spend a long time making a post, I'd recommend you store it in Evernote--- so you can find it again, pictures and all, in the future. Plus, with it in Evernote, you won't have to worry about losing it. And you can even create a "Publically Shared" notebook to put the note into, and then link back to from anywhere else.

Checked out the cached pages at Google and Bing, but no luck on finding what was here before.

Anyways, I dimly recall that your post said, in brief: "To get PB to sort child thoughts in manner that is consistant with normal sorting, you must add a period after the term you want sorted. Otherwise, it does this: (pictures)".

We have gone from 5.0.3.7 to 5.5.1.9 without this being fixed

Had hoped a future release as Matt refers to might have been the next one (5.5) but let's see if it gets fixed in 6.0

I agree, this is high on my PB Annoyances list, especially as Reports seems to use a different algorithm.

One workaround is to add a comma, as below:
