[Feature Request] Sorting with numbers

Post by PeterPan » Sat Jul 21, 2012 8:31 am

Hi,
one feature which I would love to have in the new version, later this year, is a "correct" sorting in PDF-Tools. Like you can see here:
Image
It starts counting with 1 but then comes 10, 11, 12 and so on. I have a lot of pdf files which are named liked this and I have to order them all by myself.

So my feature requests are to following, maybe it would be possible to do that:
- Treat numbers as real numbers (Numbers greater than 9)
- I have to click about a lot, till the document with number 10 is at the bottom, so maybe you could add an option to bring the selected document at the bottom
- Select multiple documents and move them down at once
- Implement drag & drop to sort them faster with the mouse

Maybe a few of these ideas are already on your list or implemented in the new version later this year, if not I think they would be a great improvement. Maybe you could think about it. :D
Nevertheless, thanks for your great products! I love to use them! I'm looking fordward to the beta release of the viewer next montht!

Found this old request and Peter was looking for the same things as I am now, when merging files, mainly

- Select multiple documents and move them down at once
- Implement drag & drop to sort them faster with the mouse

Thanks

Hi Robert,

The PDF Tools is still to receive it's overhaul, but at the moment in the Editor selecting more than one file and moving them Up/Down together already works (check attached image). Rearranging with the mouse is something I will suggest as a feature next time I speak with the devs and see if it will be approved.

Regards,
Stefan

Stefan,

Thanks, that's one more thing I have learned that Editor will do :)
Combining files in Editor will work for me.
