Yosemite and Mail sort problem

Hi,

I typically have a few-hundred items in my Mail inbox. Prior to upgrading to Yosemite, when I had an email highlighted and clicked either "From" or "Subject" Mail would sort all of the email by that corresponding field and jump down to all of the messages that fit that criteria.

After the upgrade, I can still obviously sort, but for example, if I sort by name, the view doesn't "jump", meaning all the A's come to the top and I have to scroll down to find the highlighted message.

This is a bit annoying and slows me down quite a bit in terms of productivity, ie reading all the messages from a particular person or from a particular chain.

Does anyone know how to toggle this back?

dont think there is a toggle

once you've set the sort to 'from'

go to the view menu, choose Select then Next message in conversation

That should move focus to the next message by that person (ie the one just after the one that was selected at time you did the 'sort by from')

Thanks but that definitely doesn't fix the problem. I really would like to get it back to the way it was.

It's annoying me too :( Thanks x77686d for the tip about using the up/down keys. That helps, but I would certainly prefer the old behaviour. I have also sent feedback to Apple in the hope of getting them to reinstate it.
