Order of Investment Transactions?

In a recent version upgrade, I noticed "Security transactions from the same day now appear in alphabetical order." as an improvement.
It appears they are alphabetical by "Action" which is a really dumb way to sort. Why did they change it to that. Previously all new transactions for a day were alphabetized by Security (which makes the most sense)?

    I guess someone thought it was a good idea.

    It has been proposed that it be put back to the original order:

    Restore previous investment register sort order — Quicken

    The good news is the change is "planned" so we should hopefully see it put back sometime soon.

    See this "Idea" post to revert that change. 

    Quicken has indicated that 'correction' is planned but there is not schedule for it (not a surprise there).  Exactly how it will be corrected is unknown - we can only hope.  As noted (I think) in those comments, that sort-by-action was in an earlier release also and was quickly removed. 

    As to Why they even attempted that sort-by-action approach, no one seems to have any idea and Quicken is not saying. 

    Actually, I believe the prior approach was sort by order entered within the day.  That seems to be preference of most users who have commented.
