Just a general comment on something which tends to catch me out quite often during day-to-day use of our Redmine installation. In many areas, it'd be great to have drop-down lists sorted alphabetically. For example, drop-downs which list users (or, indeed user's roles) would be easier to scan through if they were sorted alphabetically.

Many thanks,

I think you'll find that user lists are sorted alphabetically, they're just alphabetical on surname. Caught me out too. Should probably be a user preference thing.

Ahh. So they are! But what about roles? They seem to be in order of creation, which can be tricky to search visually.

  • Resolution set to Fixed

Users lists sort is fixed in r2010. Roles are sorted by their position that can be adjusted in administration area.
