Tag pane orders tags based on frequency instead of alphabetical

Steps to reproduce

  • Add tags to your files
  • Observe tag pane behaviour

Expected result

  • Tags are ordered in alphabetical fashion.
    (This is how it worked thus far. It would be good to have it at least as an option. Now it is very hard to find specific tags as they are all over the place.)

Actual result

  • Tags are ordered in order of frequency/count.


  • Operating system: Win 10
  • Obsidian version: v0.12.16

Additional information


there is a button in the tag pane to change the ordering.
Also, You are using an old version of obsidian, update it.
