#1106 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Listing files in Inspectors files-tab should use "natural sort"

Description

By changing the way files are sorted (and then listed), the readability would — in my opinion — improve.

The Files-tab currently shows:

 mylinuxdist-part1.zip
 mylinuxdist-part11.zip
 mylinuxdist-part2.zip
 ..

whereas "natural sorting" this would result in:

 mylinuxdist-part1.zip
 mylinuxdist-part2.zip
 mylinuxdist-part11.zip
 ..

Most file browsers nowadays (Finder is my poison) sorts this way, which would make it more intuitive for Transmission to behave accordingly. Feel free to only apply this where it should fit otherwise (this is mainly why I stick with the Transmission component).

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The files tab displays it in the order that it is stored in the torrent - this is desired because it lets you know what pieces might overlap.
