[Feature request] Sort order for "Alternative versions" list should sort numbers better

Currently the alternative versions list is being sorted alphabetically. This gets annoying when you are labeling numerically since a “version 10” is sorted above “version 2” (see screenshot below).

Is it possible to also take into account the number in the sort similar to file explorer?



Sorry for the hassle with that one, @jedicry.

I’ve added your vote for this request and we’ll see if we can improve this!

Thanks for sharing your need. Anything else, we’re here! :slight_smile:

A natural sort order - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_sort_order - would work nicely here.

As a workaround you could try prefixing a “0” to your single digit numbers. E.g. 01, 02, 03, etc.


@paulshoughton, @jedicry
I do exactly the same, just giving the number prefix for alternate view:

What I don’t like is Alternates get random names and are placed in random order. I’d prefer it is inserted in more predictible way: either as the last item, or as the next sibling to the current alternate.

Why? Because sometimes I’m too lazy to give it a proper name :grinning:, or just doing some no-name UI research & idea generation.


Thanks @Alexey_Kolchenko! We got some requests about this too and I’m adding your vote for it.
