Sorting Doesn't Account Correctly for Link

The problem is that sorting doesn’t seem to account for links correctly (both internal links to other Dynalist objects, and external links).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a new document
  2. Add three items:
    • A plain item
    • A link to an external website
    • An internal link to another Dynalist object

For example:

Expected result

After I select Sort > Title (A to Z) to the left of “Test”, I expect it to be sorted alphabetically (remain like the example above).

Actual result

Instead, it produces:


Which operating system are you using?
macOS 11.2.3

Which browser are you using?

If you’re using a desktop or mobile app, what’s the version number of Dynalist?

Are you using any third-party scripts for Dynalist, e.g. PowerPack?

Hmm yeah, sort just uses the plaintext content of your item, which means in your case the item starts with [, which would put it at the beginning… Maybe it’d make more sense to sort ignoring symbols?

Will be addressed in an upcoming release.
