This feature request is related to this bug report.
When sorting a set by a tag relation, objects are sorted depending on the order of the tag’s options.
At the moment, to change this order, you are required to delete a tag, create a new one (that will be appended to the options [at the bottom of the list]).
Moreover, it would be ideal to be able to manually order certain options (i.e. those which are often used) earlier — especially useful when there exist dozens of different tag options with similar names (and thus searching for specific options, is also rendered inefficient).
The ideal solution would be to have the ability to reorder tag options, thus changing the order by which objects are sorted (when a set is sorted by a tag).
Another potential solution (commented by @lynxlove — thank you!) to the former issue above, would be to have the ability to custom sort the order in which tags are displayed, via the “Sort by” menu (in addition to the current “Ascending” and “Descending” options).
The only viable alternative is mentioned above.
Thank you for reading, hope you have an amazing day!
