Different way of number batch view (sort files numerically)?

Postby cyan » Thu Nov 03, 2016 10:05 pm

Example : If I have files :
1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, 10.jpg, 11.jpg
windows will show 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 10 -> 11
while xnview will show 1-> 10 -> 11 -> 2 -> 3

is there a way to make xnview view files in the same way as windows ?

Yes, in the Browser select View > Sort by > Name in place of Name (not numeric) :D

Naming of sorting
I wonder why the naming in XnView Classic and XnView MP and the order of the menu items differs:

XnView Classic:
Name
Name (numeric)

XnView MP:
Name
Name (not numeric)

Default sort order
Sorting by Name (numeric) isn't default for XnView MP. And sorting by Name (numeric) should be default on both XnView Classic and XnView MP.

In XnView 0.84 beta 1 the default is Name (numeric), now.

But: The naming between XnView Classic and XnView MP is still inconsistent.

I'd suggest for both XnView Classic and XnView MP:
Name
Name (not numeric)

This means that XnView Classic needs to be changed.

Fixed in beta 4:
Default is "Name" and label says just "Name" while there is also "Name (not numeric)".
