Slicer Sort is broken

The slicer sort is broken in PowerBI desktop.

I am on Version: 2.97.861.0 64-bit (September 2021)


I have a very simple problem. I have a version number that is text, that I want in the slicer. I then have a order column. I created a Sort Order column that turns the date into a number. I should not have to do that. But I was worried it was a date issue. But it's not.


Yes I set "sort by column" in "column tools". Then I go to the slicer and sort by accending. As the screenshots below show it's clear that the slicer is ignoring the sort.

You need to select the column(Version) that you want to sort, then select Sort by Column.

Oh I missed that you had to select the column you wanted first. My bad. Thanks!
