How can I cancel the selection of a sort criterion?

When browsing a folder, we have the ability to sort the content views according to one or several columns, which is nice:

However I never managed to make this feature work, since folders are always sorted by title by default, and sorting by another column only adds it as a “second sorting criterion” which has no effect - unless I have documents with the same title.

I must have missed something, but how are we supposed to remove a sorting criterion so we can actually sort by something else than the title?

Thanks

Hi,

Sorting can be done 2 ways :

  • either click on the name of the column and in that case, it will be sorted using the column only
  • or click on the arrow of a column, in that case, it will add a sorting criteria as you have experienced already.

When several criterion are set, click on the name of a column to cancel the sorting and start using the column only.

and these explanations are visible when putting your mouse over the column titles or sorting arrows (maybe not enough visible?)

Thanks, it works. I now realize that the tooltips actually document this, only they seemed unclear to me until now.
