Topic "sorting the files with the new version"

Author Message


Hi all,

Ever since I have updated my installation, I cannot get the files sorted the way it was before. I want the files to be sorted according to the extension. For example, I have two groups of files . The fist group named as file1X, and the second group named as file2X, where x runs from 1 to 30. I want the second group to appear after the first group. Apparently, non of the sorting options in the "Remote" menue works the way I want. What can I do?
