Sorting mode not saved

:) Hello !

:bug: Changing the option in the "Sort by…" list works only during the current session,
it's always reset to "Name" in the next session… :(

• Important note :- I tested with a fresh new INI (made a backup copy of the current one and emptied the used one),
that doesn't change anything, the new sort order is lost.

Which view mode do you use? Which sorting?

Extension only ?

:) Hello !

• It seems that only (?) “Extension” is not saved. Please, try the following steps, supposing you have “Name” (default) :

1. Change to “Extension”, close MP.

2. Restart it, check the sort order : “Name” is back !

3. Set i.e. “Date”, close :arrow: restart.

4. Check the sorting mode : “Date” is alright there.

5. Change to “Extension”, close :arrow: restart.

6. Check the sorting mode : “Date” is back !

• The direction doesn't matter, it has its own entry in the INI.

• I couldn't find out the value for Extension with the INI entry :
sort= ???
• This value is not written in the INI when one changes the sorting order to “Extension”…
