Simple questions on searching
Newbie here so please be kind with any reply. Notwithstanding the many questions and complaints on the search interface which I've recently read and I agree with, I have a couple of basic questions on when search results are returned.
- Why are the results returned in no particular order, and why is it not possible to sort those results by their column headings, eg alphabetically by name, by date, or by category of source record to make them more useful?
- Why , when often the results are in the hundreds or thousands, is the default set to just 20 results per page? And why cannot a higher default be set permanently by the user?
