option to remember a previous order per columne

Post by LaserDolphin » Mon Nov 09, 2015 7:18 am

Explain:

If i want to order the columne per "PATH" and per "Size", so every new order process change the previous process.
So i have ordered by Size or by PAth.
So i can never find the biggest File in a PAth with some hundred files in it.

Better for understanding, if i search "*.jpg" i can never find the
- biggest file
- of the files wih a "A" at the beginning
- and latest modified date

A sorting by Name, and dont changing by sorting the path or other colouns would be great.

Secondary sorts, where you sort by size, then path, so matching paths are sorted by size is on my TODO list.

Unfortunately, with the recent addition of fast sorts, this will make secondary sorts impossible. Fast sorts would have to be disabled for this to function correctly.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I doubt secondary sorts will be added in 1.4, most likely added in Everything 1.5.

The Everything 1.4 beta is already available from http://www.voidtools.com/downloads/
