Cannot custom order product categories

I'm not sure if I'm missing something, but I cannot custom order my product categories. I added them in the order that I wanted but they are displaying in reverse order. Can custom sorting be added, please?

While you're at it, when I added product attribute options with "sort by" set to "custom", then saved the options, they were reordered alphabetically even though "custom" was still checked. I manually rearranged them in the order I needed, saved the changes and they were fine. This is cumbersome, so can you please look into this?
