Document Default Sorting
I came to UserVoice here specifically for this topic : I couldn't find a Global Sort option in Settings. Now that I understand how it works, though many requests and comments here, I'm happy to use it as-designed. Given the high profile of Sorting in Q&A for this app, I highly suggest that the Getting Started Guide or FAQ include a paragraph to specifically describe how this mechanism works:
There is no "Global Default Sort Order" setting. To set the default sort for all episodes of all podcasts, Uncheck the App Setting > Display Configuration > Podcasts > Custom Sorting. Then go into any podcast and set your preferred Sort order. That becomes the global setting which now applies to all podcasts. To change this setting for any one podcast, Check the Custom Sorting option and then go to the individual podcast to change its specific option.
Sortingis a global setting by default. Every time you change the sorting mode it applies to every screen. If you want screens to have their own sorting then you can enable this in the app settings.

You misunderstood. My request is to DOCUMENT how that feature works because there has been so much confusion. Right now, the only way someone will know how this works is if they come to this site.
I provided a user-friendly text sample for either the FAQ or user guide, to make this request easy to approve. I'm essentially just asking you to copy/paste that into your docs to improve the user experience. :)
