Option to order completed by priority

jlous says:
I have a list with sort order = priority, and I acttively use the priority to group items. When I view the list in 'completed' mode, the priority ordering is gone (i'm guessing replaced by completion date?). I would like to keep the 'native' sort order in 'incomplete' view.

Case: One of my lists is my actual grocery shopping list, (including the milk!). Since the items are normally from the same set, I rarely type new items, I just uncomplete existing ones.
I use the priority field to roughly group items found in the same area of the shop. This would be equally useful when creating the list (in incomplte view) as when shopping (normal view)

This isn't currently possible; completed lists are sorted by completion date. Sorry for the inconvenience.

But thanks for the feedback on how you'd like it to work!

That's not a helpful response, Andrew. You just told us it's not possible because that's not how it's done. That's not a real reason WHY it's not possible.

Couldn't you do something like this:

list:shopping AND status:completed AND priority:1
list:shopping AND status:completed AND priority:2
list:shopping AND status:completed AND priority:3
list:shopping AND status:completed AND priority:none

I realize it's 4 different Smart Lists, but it'll get you what you need.
