Make XnView use the same order of files as in folder

Post by Bezier »

Hi,

I happened to come across the same, or a similar, problem.

I have 3 files (differently processed versions of same picture): P818.jpg, P818-1.jpg, P818-2.jpg .

I want them to be sorted by name, in this order. XnViewMP under Windows does that :D

However, under Linux (Mint Mate), sort order in file browser (Caja, Nemo) is as intended, but in XnViewMP, order is always P818-1.jpg, P818-2.jpg, P818.jpg , no matter which "Sort by Name" option I choose.

Any way to change that?

Best regards,
Bezier

No matter whether I use
Name - numeric order
Name - normal order
Name - alphabetical order,
on Linux, the order is always P818-1.jpg, P818-2.jpg, P818.jpg .

(On Windows, it's P818.jpg, P818-1.jpg, P818-2.jpg (= what I want) with numeric and normal order; P818-1.jpg, P818-2.jpg, P818.jpg with alphabetical order.)
