Re: Previous post -- Actually - despite fact I recalled after clicking 'Add Comment' that I did not want to be in that account, and  logged out of Geni and into this account, apparently I forgot to log out of Help, so when I then went to Help, they did from wrong account.  And Help does not have a delete, so very annoying.  Ignore reference there to "other account".   The rest is definitely true.  I try to use this one in Help because Help hard-types the display name (which is then viewable to everyone, Geni-user and not, and searchable, as well).

Re:  "Documents page is now sorted by most recently updated by default"  - I do not see any mention of it being sorted by when it was "updated" - did you mean "most recently uploaded"?? 

Documents used to be sorted with first uploaded first -- I have been slowly going thru those in my other account, making a variety of notes, including checking for those without tags -- now everything is on totally different pages - and what page the document is on will continue to change as I add documents.   I am sure Descending was introduced for a reason, but some of us prefer it the way it was.  Others might prefer it one way sometimes, the other way at other times.  PLEASE - give the option to sort ASCENDING AND DESCENDING - don't lock it in to just descending.
