I accidentally pressed on "key" at the top of the Compile > Metadata pane, when compiling for MultiMarkdown. Now, all of my metadata fields are sorted alphabetically. There is a small arrow now appearing to the right of the word "key".

I need to be able to sort the keys manually, as I am using them to create a Pandoc Yaml header.

How do I get rid of sorting? Is this a bug or is there some combination of holding down some key while clicking on "key" that I am missing?

Yeah I'd call that a bug, or an oversight more like. Fortunately it is not a permanent problem, as it looks like reloading the project dispels the sort condition.

It does indeed (though everything still needs to be re-arranged manually, which happily is a one-off affair). Perhaps this could be forwarded to the relevant bug-department. Thank you for the quick reply and solution.

This won't be a problem in 3.0. I checked and the table header doesn't allow sorting.
