    difficult to follow your solution - scroll up to the top?

    The individual messages within a conversation do not sort properly and i don't see anyway to fix it.

    are you talking about the list of message on the left side of the screen?  Haven't even checked that - my big concern is the individual messages within a conversation are out of order

    yup and it's been happening for years! apparently apple doesn't think any one cares.  best way to tell them is to use the contact link in the bottom right hand corner of apple.com

    Hi,

     

    |Chris| is talking about a long conversation that you have in one chat where you can scroll the chat to the very "top" or start of the Chat.

     

    It seems that when the current section containing those Out of Sequence iMessages are then out of view they get re-ordered when you scroll the Chat back.

     

    Since that post other people are reporting that turning Off Messages and restarting it also seems to re-order the iMessages.  (There are no issues with AIM or Jabber IMs)

    HI,

     

    He is stating about closing the whole App down (Quit) and then restarting the app as I just posted to your oldest reply to this Thread.

     

    As Messages is not a year old yet it have not been "happening for years".  It is a rolling year from when it was released not an arbitrary counting of "two years" as we passed the end on one of them.

    It is not an issue on our iOS devices because we never turn them off then..?

    HI,

     

    The Mac Version can sort incoming messages or chats by Time or Manually  (See View Menu > Sort Conversations).

    The iOS version does not have this.  The Newest chat which is also an iMessage in most cases  is always at the top.

     

    In the Mac version this appears to be only a sort for the conversations themselves (the order in which they appear in the left hand pane of the Main Messages window).

    It does NOT appear to be a way to sort the iMessages or IMs within an iMessages Chat or a Buddy List chat.

     

    The Mac version being Off and then turned On to sync conversations that had been held on an iPhone or iPad (or were in fact continuing) did seem to be the ones with the issue as the sync process and ongoing conversations seem to have different rules or priorities from the iMessages server causing new message to be out of place.

     

    People do report that once the sync process has "caught up" Messages on the Mac can be restarted and the individual iMessages appear in the "right" order.

    (I have not evidence of this due to my lack on Off line conversations as far as my Mac versions goes).

    I've tried restarting the Mac version myself without any such luck. I was just thinking if the opposite occurs as well - if I turn my phone off and chat away on my mac, will the iOS version experience the same issue? I've only heard of it on the Mac version, but maybe that's because we never turn our precious iPhones off...!

    HI,

     

    I have never tried it that way round either.

    Just a quick update, I installed 10.8.3 and in the release notes, it said this bug had been fixed.  It hasn't.  Today, I had an iMessage conversation with someone on my iPhone.  Later, I turned on my MacBook Pro and the conversation went 10:36am, 10:04am, 10:45am.  I am really puzzled by this one.  If the time stamps were wrong, I guess I could understand the problem but they aren't.  Why is it so hard just to sort the messages by time stamp?

     

    I will say the things seem less out of order since the update but they still aren't correct.

     

    Come on Apple...let's get this one fixed!

    Im having the same problem.  I installed os x 10.8.3....even did a clean install from a flash drive.  I had a couple of conversations on my iphone and came home, opened up my rMBP 13" and messages were out of order.  For as long as this update was being tested you would think this would easily resolved.

    Same issue here since 10.8.3 its actually gotten worse it'll randomly right before your eyes go from a good order to scrambled without even pressing buttons.

    I have the same issue. Have noticed since getting a new MBP in Dec w/OS 10.8. This is a pretty obvious bug. I'm going to post something via the feedback link provided.

    I'm having similar issues though they don't seem to be as severe. Just now the latest two imessages in a chat were out of order on my iMac and iPhone. I exited out as suggested and restarted on the iMac and it fixed the problem. Closed the app and went back in on my iphone and this solved it as well. However, I usually have the problem where imessages are just missing on the iMac, whilst the iPhone is fine. I'll do my bit and post on the feedback link too.

    Just tried the feedback link, but I never used iChat or mobile me and it's asking for .Mac or AIM name? And the iChat version only goes up to Snow Leopard. If there not updating the feedback section to iMessage, are they really going to pay attention to anything we submit through this?
