Default spouse order from TreeShare

Brand new RootsMagic database. Download extensive tree from Ancestry. With multiple spouses, they are not defaulting to marriage date order. I get if there is no marriage date or if there are multiple dates getting confused. But why is it not defaulting to the order based on Marriage Dates as recorded in Ancestry?

Also, I do know how to manually reorder, but would appreciate a more automatic default method.

Tools>Rearrange Spouses

This issue is not specific to TreeShare. Even if you are entering all your data into RM by hand, spouses are not sorted automatically into date order.

About the best you can do is to search on Number of Spouses .>= Greater Than .=> 1 to find people with more than once spouse, and then do a Rearrange Spouses for the ones that are in the wrong order.
