This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Sort by capture time doesn't always work on 2015.7 / 6.7

After updating to macOS Sierra sorting on the Lightroom stopped working if you make changes of the 'sort-by' parameter. For example, change Capture Time and position of the image won't be changed even if you sort the images by Capture Time.

NEVER UPDATE UNTIL .1 OR .2! How many times do I need to tell you people! I'm an Apple Certified ACTC with 25 years support experience.

I don't have any issues with macOS. I don't have any issues with all other apps. I don't speak about issue in macOS. But I see the issue on the Lightroom. Don't blame others in your fault. The Lightroom has the issue and you refuse to fix it.

P.S. If you're even not Adobe developer then it's much more terrifying. Because I was transferred here from the webpage designed to report bugs. I'm not going to discuss anything here. I've reported the issue and there is only one thing that I expect now: it must be fixed.

I can't reproduce this issue. Can you please confirm you're on 2015.7 / 6.7 and give exact steps.

I can confirm that I'm on 2015.7 / 9.7.

Steps to reproduce the issue:
1. Import JPG files.
2. Add them to a collection.
3. Sort it by Capture Time.
4. Go to the Library and change the date of an image.

Should be: Position of the changed image must be adjusted automatically.
Actual result: Nothing happens.

Yup, I'm doing exactly that, and the sort order updates correctly for me. Perhaps someone else could give it a try.

(Just checking... none of the photos are stacked?)

None of the photos are stacked. Are you using Sierra? It works fine on El Capitan. Please add the following steps before the step 1 and I think you'll be able to reproduce the issue:

1. Download exiftool command-line tool.
2. Run the Terminal and execute the following commands on the folder with images that you're going to import:
exiftool -GPSTimeStamp= ./*.jpg
exiftool -GPSDateStamp= ./*.jpg
rm ./*_original

P.S. Make sure that you're running the commands with the same extension that your files have (not .JPG, .jpeg or .JPEG, for example - it's case sensitive!).

The fact that you should use the exiftool can be considered as the separate issue. The Lightroom doesn't change all date & time parameters when a user changes the date or time!

Victoria, please look also to the much-much more annoying issue: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/bug-report-auto-tone-over-expose-all-images-b... (there're 2 issues actually: too high exposure and different values on Mac and iPad versions of the app).

Sounds like you're describing the same symptoms as this post -
https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/sort-by-capture-time-5gbguiycaa101

I believe it's an acknowledged bug introduced in the 2015.7 / 6.7 release.  Same thing happens to me in Windows, so it's not OS based.

The workaround is to simply change the sort criteria or direction and then change it back.  That should restore the proper sort order.
