In my research, I have found an 1870 census which I have put into RootsMagic, then perhaps an 1850 census, then an 1860 census and so on. In the source drop down list, they are out of date order. I want the 1850 to appear first, then the 1860, 1870, 1880, and so on. I am not able to rearrange them now. I hope this feature can be added in the future.

In FamilyOrigins and in RM1, RM2, RM3 the sources appeared in alphabetic order in the source dropdown list. This functionality has been lost in RM4, RM5, RM6, and RM7. I really hope this functionality is restored in the RM rewrite. Indeed, I hope for something better, namely that you could click on any column in the source dropdown list and sort by that column. We shall see what happens whenever the RM rewrite is released.

Confirming this is on the enhancement request list.
