Alphabetic sorting of Documents in Navigator

Post by aphor » Sat Dec 21, 2013 5:47 am

I'd really like to see an option to keep the files listed under Documents in the Navigator pane sorted alphabetically.

"Options -> Editor Options -> General -> Automatically sort files on open"
only seems to apply to the tabs in the documents bar.

If I only use the Documents bar to change between files, the listing in the Navigator pane remains sorted, but as soon as I select a file using the Navigator pane (my preferred way to switch - I generally have the Documents bar turned off), the selected file always unsorts (usually, but not always, to the end of the list) until I manually re-sort it using the Documents bar.

I will look to link the sorting of both the document bar and the navigator panel to that sort option.

I suspect this should be fairly easy to do, so look out for a new Zeus beta with this feature early in the new year.

I will post a link to that beta in this thread when it is available ;)

This feature has been added to the beta version found here: http://www.zeusedit.com/z300/ze397r-beta.zip

To use the files in this zip file just make a backup copy of the Zeus install folder and replace the files contained in that folder with the ones in the zip file.

Works beautifully, thanks! No more searching the list for my files :D

I found an edge case that doesn't behave as expected. If I have:
c:\Dir1\File1.txt
c:\Dir2\File1.txt (note, same filename)
and open both, I still see the old behavior of the files moving around in the "Documents" folder.

Not a big deal, I just wanted to point it out in case the fix is trivial.

Thanks!

Why this is happening is the file sorting is only being done on the file portion of the full name and not the directory portion.

This should be easy enough to fix ;)
