Keep folders sorted alphabetically

Post by Foxyrick » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:41 am

When I change the sort order of thumbnails in the browser, it would be very useful not to sort the folders by the same criterion, but just keep them sorted alphabetically at the top.

A tick box somewhere in the settings could be used to make the folder sort order 'fixed' at alphabetical regardless of the thumbnail order selected.

+1 (makes much sense)

This new setting should be active by default, i.e. folders are sorted alphabetically always.. "Name" and "Name (Numeric)" might also affect folders, but all other sort orders shouldn't unless this new settings is unchecked.)

Still waiting for this... it's the only thing that stops me using XnView MP as my main photo manager.
