Can get sort by file name not by added order?

May 28, 2012 12:23 PM

When I import, LR for some reasons seems to always default the sort to added order, not filename. Its a real nuisance, anything I can do. thanks!

    Make sure you have selected "All Photographs" then View->Show Toolbar and select the sort criteria of File Name

    Toggle visibility of tool-bar with the T key.

    As long as you stay in "Previous Import" the sort order will always be *added order*.

     

    You can change that only in folders and collections.

    "Capture time" is my default, which means the same as file name, depending on your naming scheme.

    This toolbar allows you to change the sort order. To the right of the AZ icon (the sort direction icon) is a drop-down that lets you choose file name order.

     

    The default is not previous import, except when you have just done an import. If you select Folders after that, it stays on folders until you do another import, or until you choose another item from the left-side panel

    For those of you that came late to the party, like me, use Library mode to sort as mentioned above in LR4.  You can't sort in Develop.
