Pasting foods should append them to the end of the list
On Android, if you go through the somewhat complicated flow to copy a food from yesterday to today, that item may be pasted somewhere in the middle of today's list. My hunch is that the timestamp you had the food at yesterday is copied along with the item, and that determines the sort order for today.
That's strange - if I had a snack yesterday morning and I want to paste it this evening, it will show up instead this morning.
Note that I don't have Gold; by "morning" and "evening" I mean the first and last foods in today's list.
If unclear, the screencast may help.
Thanks for the video! You might be onto something with the timestamp affecting things. I've logged a bug for our devs to investigate.
As always, any and all postings here are covered by our T&Cs:
@Karen_Cronometer: any progress? Now that I have Gold, it's been really annoying to have to always reorder foods and fix the timestamps after pasting.
This problem has been reported since 2019, and again in August 2020.
This also happens when using the "Copy to Today" functionality on the web app. It often adds items inbetween already inserted ones and not at the end
