Confused about Sort order ...

I dragged a number of entries into a Scrivener 3 Mac Binder from another project's Scrivener 3 Binder and the order they were displayed in was seemingly random in the Outliner view vs the Binder view (see screen clip of Glossary pages A-Z). I ended up using the Outliner column sort to get them to display properly. What did I do wrong?

It looks like the Outliner is sorted in reverse order, that's all. For any Outliner column, you can choose ascending, descending, or unsorted (Binder order).

Note that changing the Outliner sort does *not* affect the order of files in the Binder. To change that, select the sorted files in the Outliner, and drag them back to the relevant Binder location.
