Numerical sort option
« on: February 10, 2009, 05:30:43 PM »
All the custom sorts are done in alphabetic order -- quite reasonable  ;)

However, if you use a IPTC field to hold a numeric value, then sorting alphabetically doesn't produce the desired result. Instead you get an order of 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, .., 19, 2, 20, 21, ...  I realize the values could be entered as 001, 002, ..., but for a number of reasons, that doesn't work.

So, my suggestion would be to add a numerical sort option in the Custom Sort dialog box.
