Contact sheet sort order
« on: July 12, 2019, 07:17:33 PM »
Just installed Public Beta 6 Release (R3413) and in contact sheet it now only sort z-a instead of a-z. I can't seem to find a setting to sort a-z. It did not do this in Beta5. If I load the same folder from navigator it is sorted a-z.

Romeo,

Is this from a Catalog related search/filter or opening a folder-based Contact Sheet?

Catalog search

Catalog results are not sorted in any definitive way.  Basically at this point the images appear in the order they were added to the Catalog that the results are coming from.

Kirk, thanks for the quick response. How come in Beta 5 when pulled up it is sorted A-Z but in the latest Beta it is being sorted Z-A. This folder was added to catalog on 7/7/19 using Beta5. The only change I have done is update to latest Beta. FYI sorting has been A-Z from the 1st Beta it only started with newest Beta.

I don't know.  There were virtually no Catalog-related changes in this build.  Our time was spent elsewhere.

Kirk, am I able to keep using Beta 5? I know it expired yesterday 7/12/19. It is a pain having every folders in the catalog sorted Z-A in Beta 6.

Thanks Kirk,  would this be considered a bug since it did not do this in prior Beta's?

I am having the same issue. After the update, both filters and searches from the catalog are now showing in bottom to top sequence. Before the update, they displayed in top to bottom sequence. No changes were made to the catalog.

The filtering and searching were conducted on the EVENT field

Hi Kirk,

Any way to get the sort order back to A-Z like it was in Beta 5? It really is a pain to have to scroll to the bottom to see the #1 pic. Is this a bug?

Thanks

No.

No, but I found out recently that this was an intentional change.  We'll likely return the old behavior unless we get actual deterministic sorting done for the next beta and then this problem won't matter any longer.

Kirk,

Latest beta seemed to fixed this issue.  Thank you for the great work you guys are doing.
