We just upgraded to 1.45.1, and sorting has become buggy when the sort column and the axis column are different.
For example, we are displaying test data by season (Fall, Winter, Spring) over two years. The column displayed on the x-axis consists of names like "Fall 2021-2022", "Winter 2021-2022", etc. By default, these values would sort alphabetically, so instead we mandate a sort by a "TestAdministrationSequence" column that forces chronology.
In previous editions, the sort was respected and the x-axis ordered properly. Now, however, the axis is sorting seemingly stochastically, respecting neither the alphabet nor our designated sort column.
With the sort column displayed:
With the display column displayed:
(I should add that there is no data for Spring 2021-2022, so the gap is expected.)
So far this behavior has been observed in stacked bar charts and scatter plots where the x-axis is set to "Ordinal". Any advice on how to remediate is appreciated.
