With a recent release of Canvas, the Course List page was changed. The new layout itself is great, but the problem is that the default sort is so wacky I can't even figure out what kind of order it uses. Whatever order it is, it's not useful for me. Although I can change the order (i.e. to sort by course name alphabetically, which I don't understand why it isn't the default to begin with), it doesn't stick -- every time I come to the course page, the wacky order is there again and I have to re-sort. I would like to have the course list page such that we can choose what we want as a default sort. If that can't be done, can't you at least put it in alphabetical order like it used to be?
I don't know if this has to be listed as a separate idea, but also with the new layout, the pages are way too short. Instead of being able to quickly scroll down through the list, I have to keep going to next page and next page to find what I want. Under the old system, there was a limit to how many courses it would show, but it was a higher number than what shows now. Please bring back the longer lists so that I can quickly scroll rather than changing pages so often.
