Short description of error
Outliner - Sort Alphabetically checkbox is not working. Objects are always sorted alphabetically. Collections and Viewlayer are not sorted regardless the toggle is checked or unchecked.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Load the attached blend-file.
In the outliner scene tab only the objects are sorted alphabetically.
In the outliner prefs check "Sort Alphabetically".

Nothing happens.
The same problem also persists in the Outliner View Layer mode.

Event Timeline

That said, it seems sorting is always ON. It is low priority but simple enough, let me take a look

I see this is closed, but i still see this behavior. Feel it should be executed globally or give the user the option to only do this on object level. If users a tought properly to name a scene, then we also need to be able to properly sort a scene.

This is in branch 2.80 (sub 74), branch: master, commit date: 2019-07-11 13:50, hash: rB06312c6d2db8
