Create a Smart Collection that shows at least 20 pictures in grid view

 

View - Sort - Label Color

View - Sort - Ascending

 

None of the cells must be colored

 

Use the scroll bar to show the 1st. row

 

Click a cell an press “9” to paint it blue.  Repeat this 5 more times to paint non consecutive random cells

 

Every colored cell must go to the first rows

 

Now: Click a non blue cell, drag it and drop it on it self

 

Result: the color order is lost

 

Note: This situation doesn’t happen if you repeat these steps in a folder, the problem arises just in smart collections

A simpler way to reproduce this behavior:

1. Start in Library Grid view.
2. Select any smart collection that shows at least 2 photos.
3. Do View > Sort > Added Order.
4. Drag one of the photos on top of itself.
5. Observe in the toolbar at the bottom that the sort order has changed to Sort: Capture Time.

What would be the expected behavior here? Honor the Custom Order or honor the Added Order?

It’s easy: 

If a cell is dropped on itself, means that nothing has changed: keep the original order of the cells (just do nothing)

If a cell is dropped elsewhere changing its place, activate the custom order


Dropping a cell on itself seems to be meaningless, but it happens sometimes while using the Wacom Pen with a very sensitive tip that seem to miss contact with the tablet.  This situation scrambles all the cells!

To build on drobitan's reply: When in a regular collection or a folder, dropping a photo on itself keeps the current sort order.  So it would be consistent for smart collections to behave the same way.
