in my Linked Mentions (top right), the default sort order is filename (A-Z). i changed it to sort on 'Modified Time (new to old)" so the newest mention is always highest on list. It seems this sort order is not stored, as when i quit and restart Obsidian, the sort order is back to it’s default value. It seems the preferred sort order is not stored.
I think this is more a feature request.
Just hopped in here to +1 this. Would love to save a default sort option for linked mentions (I generally want to sort by most recently updated).
+1, is there a related feature request already?
+1 - is this being tracked anywhere? Still a bit annoying to open Obsidian and do a couple clicks each time to reset my sort preference.
this has been implemented a long time ago for the backlinks pane (side panel). The backlinks in document is another story.
Does that mean it’s not going to happen?
