How sort Groups a-z (not subgroups)

how can i sort groups alphabeticaly? there is “sort subgroups a-z” option already but i can’t find any for main groups under “all entries”!

JabRef 5.8:



See “s” is after “z”

Right-click on “All entries”. Then select “Sort subgroups A-Z”




See “s” is before “z”

Can you describe how you tried to sort the groups?

Indeed, you are right and I think this is a problem that was introduced in Group context menu presents relevant options depending on number of subgroups by Gpax971 · Pull Request #9286 · JabRef/jabref · GitHub
