Make sorting of directories "Like files (also by time)" the default.

Post by *petermad »

Almoset every day (at least every week) users here on the forum complains that foldes are not sorted like the files - and they have to be advised to go into "Configuration" -> "Options..." -> "Display" - > "Sorting directories" and select "Like files (also by time)".

Maybe it would be a good idea to make that the default setting for new users.

Really? Haven't noticed that.

In any case the help page named "Sort" should be improved. Add another hint about sorting directories by time. And use boldface for Name, Extension, etc.

Agree on this.

Also remove square brackets from dirs.

I would keep the default sorting as is (but both is fine).

In any case: Please keep the square brackets!!! This makes it much easier to quickly distinguish between dirs and files.

Have you tried disabling the option: "Configuration" -> "Options..." -> "Display" -> "File display" -> "Show square brackets [] around directories" ;-)

Or - do you mean that this should not be enabled by default?
