PHOTOSHOP CC Libraries - alphabetize libraries dropdown

Please alphabetized the libraries in the dropdown menu. I am not referring to the assets in a given library which can be sorted by name or date. I am referring to the dropdown list of libraries in the libraries window. They are arranged by last modified I believe, and the order is always changing. I'd rather they be arranged alphabetically or at least have the option. I work with a lot of brands, and I've created a library of logo assets for each brand. I am constantly updating the libraries and so their order in the dropdown is constantly changing. The point of this tool is to make accessing assets quicker and easier. Please give the option of listing the libraries alphabetically so I can easily find the one I am looking for. Thanks.

Which product are you using?  (at least 4 have different concepts of "libraries")

I use the CC Libraries across Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC and InDesignCC. I would just like to arrange the list in the image below by name.

Absolutely agree and need this. Truly surprised it hasn't been there since the beginning.

Can you show me where to do this please? The only option I see is Sort by Name which sorts items in a library vs. sorting the libraries themselves.

I believe Jaroslav is thinking of the library assets. We want the Libraries themselves to be listed alphabetically in the dropdown. See the image near the top of this thread. If I'm mistaken and you do know a way to do this please share.

Ok, I was wrong. Btw I think you can edit Library code, because it's plugin writen in Javascript and you can edit it. But problem can occurs with Photoshop update, because your changes will be lost.

Thanks for finally doing this! It really helps! I like how they libraries are alphabetized AND there is a short list of recently used libraries at the top. Perfect!
