Magic Album - Program Bugs

Column sorting changes the order of items in list with similar values (not a bug)


When clicking the header of a column to sort, if there are fewer than 9 items that have identical values in that column, the list will cycle by 1.

It's easily reproducible if you make a deck with 9 differently-named lands, then sort by casting cost. Each time the column is clicked, the top item of the list moves to the bottom.

If there are 9 or more items with the same value in the column being sorted, the order will remain the same when the column header is clicked. I would think that this is the more desirable behavior, since it will preserve custom sorting within each item value.

Not a bug, but a sorting algorithm feature. The order of the items with the similar values is not guaranteed. Use secondary sort criteria (i.e. by set).
