Objects sort incorrectly in Set

Describe the bug
I create a Set to collect books and try to sort them by ‘Status’ (Ready to Start, In Progress and Finished), but the order looks incorrect, and I got two incorrect orders randomly.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create three objects in a set
  2. Sort them by one relation
  3. See their order

Expected behavior
The order of objects sorted correctly.

System Information:

  • OS: macOS 12.0.1
  • Device Manufacturer/Model: MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
  • Anytype Version: 0.23.5

@WAMaker this seems to be limited to sorting on Status for me. Did you find any other Relation that results in incorrect sorting?

I am still having this issue while trying to sort by ‘Status’.

There’s another thread that seems to have a similar problem while sorting by ‘Tag’ but I’m not sure if Tag jumbles the results up in the same way.


This issue only seems to occur with statuses, not tags (from my experience, at least). The linked topic is concerning a slightly different issue. :sweat_smile:

By the way, it seems that manually opening each [incorrectly sorted] object, fixes the issue with statuses. :slight_smile:

I think the “Implemented” tag on this topic is mislabeled. This is a bug report about status sorting instead of tag sorting which appears to be fixed already.

Hello, Authors do not get sorted correctly either.

This should be following “Authors - Ascending”, but it seems pretty random. New additions are just shuffled among existing ones (rather than being added at the end), so there must be some logic.


@rypeld Are you using the latest version 0.32.0?

Yes, but the issue appeared already in the legacy versions. I added one author today, and again, it just shuffled the name in the midst of others.

@Angelo I’ve updated the status tag from implemented to triage. Is that the way to go here? If so, could you update the relevant Linear topic?

@sambouwer Does this issue persist in 0.34.3?
