I always sort my images in a collection by Capture Time, which is the same as sorting them by File Extension. Looking at eight new images sorted by Capture Time today, somehow I realized that they were in reverse order. To get the order back, I chose File Extension. Now choosing Capture Time puts everything in reverse order again. I tested on another collection in the right order by Capture Time. It seems that clicking on File Extension didn't change anything, but clicking on Capture Time again reversed the order. What gives?

Thank you, Johan. It's such a simple thing I never noticed.

Another problem: I recently I transferred everything on my old MacBook Pro to a newer MacBook Pro with the latest Mojave OS. I was happy that my LR 5 worked fine. The only thing is that when I copy new images from my iPhone to LR, 535 old images already in LR show up each time too. Of course, I uncheck them and I am back in business. Do you see an obvious reason why this happens?
