Suggestion: sort order of Labels list

In the sidebar Labels list of the new layout, Labels are apparently listed based on the number of tasks that have that label (most tasks at the top). The current sort order means there is no rational, predictable way for me to quickly find the label I'm looking for-- if it happens to have a lot tasks it will be near the top, but if only a few, it's near the bottom. The only way to find it is just to scan and read every label in the list til I find it. I think the most common reason a user would click on the Labels tab is to quickly get to a particular label, and this new sort order creates obstacles to that. Please either sort the Labels alphanumerically, or provide an option to do this. Thanks!

As a new Premium account, I am disappointed to see that this long over due feature is still missing. Please add this to the top of your Todoist Development List!

I've added labels as I went along, and now I have a bunch that are in similar "categories" (e.g. is the label related to how long something will take? is the label related to who is waiting for the task to be done? etc.)

Having it all random is a little frustrating.
