Sorting results

Post by vantablack » Thu Mar 18, 2021 2:55 pm

For files that contain numbers, the sorting results are different from Windows file explorer.
Pleaser refer to the below example.

<Windows file explorer>
A 1.txt
A 2.txt
A 3.txt
A 4.txt
A 5.txt
A 6.txt
A 7.txt
A 8.txt
A 9.txt
A 10.txt
A 11.txt
A 12.txt

<Everything>
A 1.txt
A 10.txt
A 11.txt
A 12.txt
A 2.txt
A 3.txt
A 4.txt
A 5.txt
A 6.txt
A 7.txt
A 8.txt
A 9.txt

I would like to see this result as right order of numbers.
Is there any way to change it?

You didn''t specify your Everything version, but I assume you are running Everything 1.4.

A couple of days ago, the alpha version of Everything 1.5 was released. In this version numeric sort (a.k.a natural sort) is implemented.

Yes, I've been used Everything 1.4 so I changed it to 1.5 alpha.
And it works just as perfectly as I wanted it to.
Thank you so much!!!
