cut then paste pastes out of order

Here's how to recreate. Create a silly collection with three (or more) records, the _id values are enough to illustrate the problem other fields are unnecessary. So here's my collection:


f4445840a69bbc9c605cb3159288916f

Click on the first "...ff9" then shift-click on the last record ("...ffb"). Then go into the text editor of choice and paste. The results are out-of-order. I'd expect the records to be pasted in ..9, ..a and then ..b but they are not. Instead it is:

{

"_id" : ObjectId("59cc0485f1586f308d5d4ff9")

},

{

"_id" : ObjectId("59cc0488f1586f308d5d4ffb")

},

{

"_id" : ObjectId("59cc0487f1586f308d5d4ffa")

}

This is particularly disruptive if one sorts the data in the query and expects the data to be in that order when one cuts and pastes.

Thank you for your bug report. We will fix it in the next update.


A quick work-around solution: use "CTRL+A" to select all docs. The results are in order.

I wanted a subrange of the documents--not all of them. But yes, I could do that and then trim the resulting set. Good idea!
