PathFinder left/right panel sorting

Currently its possible to sort the right panel by Date, ascending/descending. This is OK.

However, the PathFinder doesn't appear to keep that sorting. Selecting a different item requires the sorting to be reapplied. Returning to a previously sorted path also requires sorting.  It would be extremely useful to keep a path-specific sort and/or a global sort.

i.e. some paths I need to look at alphabetically sorted, another path I might want date/ascending sorted

 

It would also be very useful to be able to select whether the left panel sorts the same as the right panel.

With some systems using a CMS that creates JOB names using 32 'hex' characters - sorting alphabetically in the left panel is meaningless, while sorting the right panel by Date is a requirement and, sometimes, the only way to ascertain the most recent or oldest item.

  • However, in XPP 9.x PathFinder does not go as far as Windows Explorer does in remembering a sort "per folder". It only remembers a single sort setting (per user) and applies that to all folders (in the List View pane) - until the User picks a different sort.
