View - Sort by - not saving

Post by krosal » Fri Feb 14, 2020 5:04 pm

When trying to configure a sorting option it doesn't seem to want to save the settings. I have tried to set it a couple of different ways, but it comes back with the default settings. We are trying to have it sort by extension and then in Ascending order.

I tried exiting and then going back in, but it didn't seem to save. Is there a way to set a default setting for this?

Please see the images.

Thank you,

If the information is not in Everything's sorting index, sorting by it will be slower. That is why Everything switches back to one of the sorting fields that *is* in the database.

Try enabling Fast extension sort on the ETP Server (Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes) and see if that helps ( I'm not sure if this works the same way on an ETP Server ..)

Furthermore, under Menu:Tools > Options > Home, you can configure the default sort.
