Order reversed when extracting to excel from backlog board.


I would like to extract the top 5 items from my backlog and get them into excel. In the same order. 

I select the items from the backlog, using shift click, and then rightclick and select extract to excel. 

The result is page in html, with the selected issues from the backlog. However the sort order is reverse to the sort order I have in the backlog. The fifth item is on top and the 1st item is at the bottom. 
I would like to keep the order that I have in the backlog. 

Thanks in  advance

My own workaround is to select the items in the backlog and then use the option 'View in issue navigator'. 

In the issue navigator I manually add Order by Rank to the selection. Then I extract them to html and select/copy them into an excel sheet. 

The simpler solution would be to change into Order by  rank (from ticket Id) , when sending them to excel directly in the backlog view but I don't know if thats possible to configure.
