Gobi Manage Folders sort - either preserve choice within setting or allow us to set default

Within a single Gobi login session, when I sort the Manage Library Folders list, I have to keep re-sorting it every time I follow one of the folders to do some ordering, and then come back to pull the contents of the next folder. And the default sort order is the worst option, as it defaults to putting the ones with the oldest, not newest, activity at top.

So either give us the option in Library Preferences or My Preferences to define our preferred sort order for Folders, or at least preserve my last sort choice within a single login session.

    Sorry, want to correct misinformation - the default sort order is the folder name - it just happens that in our internal naming convention for wishlists, which start with the fiscal year, it puts the older ones all at the top.
