Photoshop 2020 Bug - File Info/Metadata/Template Folder Non-Alphabetical Random Order

Photoshop 21.2.0

 

Under File Info, all my saved metadata templates are totally out of order! Of course, in their folder they are fine, but pulling up File Info shows a complete jumble of over 500 saved names, so I now must slowly scroll through every entry until I come across the data file I'm looking for! 

 

Is there a preference file I can trash to make things get back into order???

 

Computer Info:

iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019)

3.6 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9

128 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

Radeon Pro Vega 48 8 GB

 

Screen shot attached to show out of order data entries.....

Since nobody seems to have any clues as to how to fix this issue, I've spent hours searching he forums for similar problems and came across the exact thing in Bridge from over two years ago...

Since having 'File Info' list metadata randomly has been a problem in the past that had to be addressed in a software update, how about someone from Adobe let me know if they've seen this in the current version on Photoshop?!! Having to hunt & peck for a metadata file from a pull-down menu that show over 500 random names not only screws up my workflow, but the frustration truly makes me wanna punch a wall 

!!! 😡

A week later am not a single reply? Does that mean I'm the only person alive who's having this issue, or simply that there is no fix available? Since this is the only way for users to 'speak' to an Adobe tech regarding issues, it would be nice to have someone chime in...😡

So it's the middle of August and still no reply from Adobe on this issue?!! I've written directly to Adobe techs and no response...I've posted across forums and no response...but other users are experiencing the same problem! It's getting pretty damn infuriating to not have a single person from Adobe at least acknowledge that users are seeing this problem and that just maybe they're doing something to correct it!
