Dear Déjà Vu experts
I have noticed that matches from project TMs during autosearch often are listed in arbitrary order. Besides, I wish to order them according to the option "Order of project Translation Memories" (in fig.).

This issue doesn't disturb me if I use 1-2 project TMs. However, if the project includes few TMs, the order matters.

I wonder, if this feature works in fact, or others also encounter similar troubles.

Client and Subject data are also important. AFAIK, in the case of same match percentage, segments with the same client and/or subject are displayed first.

Project subject: 6- Technology
Segment in 1st TM: 0 - Generalities
Segment in 2nd TM: 6 - Technology

In that case, segment pairs from the second TM will have priority.

As I understand, a subject is assigned to TM segments in the course of translation, when segments are added to the TM.

Is it possible to assign a subject to TM at a sweep?

I found another workaround -- simply by set up of Penalty values in Translation Memories tab.

Subject for TM Apr 10, 2016

You can change subject and client metadata for a TM using SQL commands, I sometimes use it for client provided TMs but never for my main TM.

You assign subject and client metadata when creating a new project (wizard). And any segments from the project or newly added term pairs will have these data. IMO, SQL commands (not filters) should be used with care.
