problem with filter control when applied to "city"

I'm trying to set up an expandable filter control with the value of "city", and when I do, it displays from Z to A, as opposed to the city with the highest number of sessions to lowest number of sessions. 

 

I also set up a expandable filter control with the value of "country" and it works just fine. 

 

I deleted my initial attempt at the city filter, and every subsequent attempt provides the same result. I don't see any way to control the sort, and think this is buggy behavior.

 

Anyone have ideas on what the issue is?

Hi Allan,

have you set the filter properties as the below?

That should sort of expandable filter.

Thanks, Donavyn. That did the trick. Odd that the country sort initially had the order set to "metric" and the city sort had it set to "dimension". These were both default settings when I added the new filter control.

 

I like what Data Studio can do, but there are definitely quirks you need to watch out for.
