Thanks for that, it will help me sort the images in lightroom on my PC. However I'm finding that the order on my mobile is not he same as my PC and I want it to be
I'm getting nearer. I have found just one sort option, but if I hold it down then the other options pop up. If I chose the same sort option as the PC then it seems to work except I have just 5 files out of 3 hundred that are tacked onto the end, after what is the last file on the PC. They don't appear to be flagged or starred
I am not able to understand the exact situation.
Do you have more images on your PC Lightroom than on your mobile?
You need to be in the same Lightroom Mobile collection on your PC as your mobile device.
On the PC I have lots of photos in lots of folders.
I have set up just one collection which is synced with my phone. On the PC the files are in perfect filename order.
Thanks to you I now know how to change the sorting order on the phone.
However when I put them in name order 5 of them are in wrong order. They don't have flags or stars.
PS, I tried it on my wife's ipad and it works perfectly.

Does those filenames have special character in them?
Does all other images apart from those 5 have stars and flags?
Can you test it with another collection on your end?
Many thanks Chetna for all your help, I've finally got there.1) On my smartphone, to be able to select different sort orders, I have to hold down the collection/catalogue name to reveal the sort options.2) In the collection folder which had 5 problem files, I had named the files numerically, i.e. 001,002,003,......010,011,...100,101, and so on. However the 5 problem files where numbered 3,7, 21,43, 45 and therefore appeared right at the end when sort by file name was selected.
Many thanks once again, we got there, Tony.
You're welcome Tony.
Glad to know that you got it sorted
