Stacked Bar Chart Sorting Incorrectly


I have a stacked bar chart and would like to sort it in decending order based on the sum of the metric used in the chart.  Instead of sorting by the total for the y axis category, it's sorting based on the total for category/series combination.  The screenshot below shows an example where the sorting only factors the y axis category/series with the greatest value instead of the y axis category total across all of the series'

    I'm not able to see your image, but based on description I believe I had the same issue and found a cheat solution that worked for me.  Rather than using a single series to define my "stack", I used Beast mode to create independent results for each possible series category, and brought in those multiple pre-aggregated results.  In this way i was still able to sort the stack based on the total population, and controlled the stack order based on the order in which i brought in each Beast Mode calc.
