Why are sort indicators backwards?
Hereâ€™s something I donâ€™t understand: why are sort indicators in OS X backwards? Consider this screen shot:
The column is sorted alphabetically, from A down to Z, yet the sort indicator arrow points up instead of down. I would expect it to indicate the direction of the sort, but it indicates the opposite of the sort direction. (Or so it seems to me.)
Iâ€™m sure thereâ€™s an explanation. But what is it?
