Openworkbench: View: Sort - (Sort length option)

In a OWB view, inside Sort tab, I can see the column "Sort length" but i think this input field isn't working as expected.  

 

My understanding is that this field determine the number of characters following the position identified by "Start Column" that will be used by sort function, it limits the target of sort function for this row (field) and enables a more sophisticated sort functionality using next rows.

 

OWB view sort length option field

But in the practice, OWB use all the character following the "Start column" position.

Have anyone used this field?

The description of these fields are too short in documentation files but the field "Start column" is working correctly
