    There's a very annoying issue with looting monsters in combination with the Enhanced Client:

    Most people use grid view for containers. If a monster loots an item from your corpse, you will not find it in the monster's backpack right beneath the monster's usual loot, but mostly you have to scroll all the way down to find your belongings.

    This often causes the loss of items, because you don't expect any more items in the monster's corpse to be sorted way down in the grid. I personally have lost lots of items until I noticed this.

    Developers, can you please make sure items dropped into a container or looted by a monster are correctly sorted in grid view? Thanks!

    This also happens with traded items. They appear to go to a random location in the grid view, not the first open slot.

    People may get freaked out when a trade completes and their item is gone and it looks like what they were to receive has vanished.

    I think the same thing happens with items received from questgivers…

    Happens after death and rezed. All your insured items pile at the bottom.

    Can toss in there sorting the stretched container. Unless it is stretched the same way things are not sorted. May need to look at the old 3d stretch container.

    On log in the backpack doesn't auto open but any container you had open it is opened at log in.

    And then the grid view that doesn't use the top row for items dropped into the container even when grid boxes are open.

    To me, it seems as if the item goes to the last grid-square that it was in... so if you have an item farther down in your pack, and a monster loots it, it will be in the same grid-square in the monster's pack. Same with traded items... it appears in the same grid location in the receiver's pack as it was in the giver's pack.

    But what if the very same grid on the monster's pack has already have another item?

    Then it kicks down to the next lower slot available.
