Add an Option to Sort Logs in Ascending or Descending Order in Developer Console

Overview

As a Roblox developer, it is currently too hard to navigate through a long list of output text when attempting to spot errors that occur later than the earlier printed outputs, especially for games who utilize print() to print out results for debugging purposes and assets that fail to load. When there are an abundance of outputs in the console, it gets irritating when you want to look at the most recent output if an error occurs afterwards.

Use Cases

When it comes to looking at the developer console. A user can toggle between the most recent or the oldest output in the console when pinpointing any possible error in code from early game to recent activity. An example of what it may look like is shown below.

In addition, a user may want to sort the output logs by the most recent outputs in case an error has happened during gameplay so the user does not have to furiously scroll through line after line.

If This Gets Added

If Roblox is able to address this issue, it would improve my development experience because not only it will make my debugging process easier when looking at either the earliest output or the latest output, it would be very convenient to navigate the output without having to scroll a lot in order to go to the latest output.
