Sort by date but in direct order, like in Windows Explorer

Post by Litr »

Let say that we have 3 group of files with different dates, and the files within the group have identical date down to a second.

Windows Explorer (sort by date, descending i.e. newest first):
1 date3
2 date3
3 date3
4 date3
5 date3
6 date2
7 date2
8 date1
9 date1
10 date1

XnView MP (sort by date, descending i.e. newest first):
5 date3
4 date3
3 date3
2 date3
1 date3
7 date2
6 date2
10 date1
9 date1
8 date1

It may be sorted by some correct mathematical method, but visually it looks a bit illogical to me...

So is it possible to add feature in XnView MP to sort by date but in direct order, like in Windows Explorer?
Checkbox in the options perhaps?
