Description shaunmcdonald131 2007-06-08 12:25:32 UTC
Lists that have numbers in them should be sorted numerically instead of alpha numerically. The problem occurs in various places across the app, and the issue tracker too. Here's some examples: Insert > Crossreference > Type Illustration: Illustration 19 should not come before Illustration 1 "Formatting and Styles" window: Heading 10 should come after Heading 9 File Chooser: If you have a list of files "Picture n.png", where n is a whole number. Real file choosers will sort this properly. (The Mac OS X Native file chooser and jEdit file choosers will sort these numerically for any set of files that only change by the numbers. Issue Tracker: "Found in version" field: 680m22 should come before 680m211. This problem is really throwing me off when looking through lists of things.

Seriously. It's 2019 and this still isn't fixed. Get on it.

> Issue Tracker: "Found in version" field: 680m22 should come before 680m211. This is a Bugzilla Issue not an OpenOffice Issue. -> Wrong Bugtracker. > Real file choosers will sort this properly. (The Mac OS X Native file > chooser and jEdit file choosers will sort these numerically for any set of files > that only change by the numbers. My mac doe not do that. I have 3 files sorted by the following order: File_21/27/13 File_03/56/10 File_04/16/30 I tried Order by Name and order by Program. >"Formatting and Styles" window: Heading 10 should come after Heading 9 maybe sort first by length and then by alpha numeric would do the trick. We can not sort numeric as is, because we do not know the Pattern of your File. Or we could try to find a way to sort by Pattern. but that will not help at places like formats which have fixed patterns.. I note this Issue on the Overview board under UI Issues. It will be fixed when someone has interest in fixing it and not earlier. If you want to get a fix, best way is to do it yourself.
