How can I change the default sort option of Priority for the Issue Navigator?

When I get into the Issue Navigator for a project I see the issues sort according to Priority by default.  We don't really use Priority in our projects, so it's annoying to have to select a new field (which I can't scroll to, btw) and then re-select the ordering, and THEN, if I'm lucky, I don't have to change the filter, otherwise the view defaults to sorting by Priority.

I can't find any documentation on how to configure this setting.  I want to be able to have the issues sort by Key, descending, when I open the Issue Navigator.  Anyone know if there's a way to make that happen?  Thanks!

I am afraid that there is no other option than add ORDER BY clause in every filter

This is COMPLETELY Stupid

I have to track mulitple projects on an hourly basis, and having to change "priority" to "key" each time I want to view latest issues is a waste of productivity and amounts to a definate COST to the company as the time it takes to do this is multiplied across engineers PMs etc.

As a system admin, if I can change the way boards and screens are displayed, why can't a user profile have the ability to assign their default "issue" order without having to create a filter to do so.

This should be an easy feature to provide considering how configurable JIRA is. 

Atlassian please don't address your customer base needs like MS does.

I am in the same boat.  If we could configure the default sort order from priority to another custom field such as key, that would be very helpful.  Please make this happen!

I agree with John, this is a no-brainer.  Need to avoid changing the sort order EVERY time - too many clicks and we have other places to sort by Priority.  If I click Issues to see the master listing, I obviously want to see the latest first.
