Description

When using the new filesorting setting Date (Newest first) some directories with this setting is not working properly. Other directories work perfect.

The symptoms for a directory that fails is that when opening the directory the files seem correctly sorted by date (newest first), but almost immedeately the files sort themselves by filename again. You can see it change the order of the files on screen as this happens. When checking the sort order option it is set to Date (Newest first).

I can find no correlation between the directories that have this error.

Hej Andres.

Any hope that you will have time to take a peek at this bug?
The sort by Date (Newest first) function works perfectly on the version it was introduced, but on later versions it changed as described in my bug report.
If I revert back to the old one all directories sort perfectly, update to the newest build and it will fail for A LOT of directories, but not all.

Thanks in advance, and as always thank you for a brilliant piece of software.

Best regards
Morten

Hi again.
Just found out what is interferring with the sorting option "Date (Newest first)".

By turning the option "Metadata mode" to either Manual or Off inside the affected folder fixes the sorting. Turning it back to Automatic forces Filename sorting even though you have Date (Newest first) selected.
So now I have a workaround and am once happy as can be, and you have some info to go on if you ever want to have a look at the bug.

Have a great weekend.

Best regards
Morten
