Sort Order Issues

I have a list of Films. Despite playing with various sort options, I can't seem to get a simple sort to work (in either the Text List or Detailed List Views). I'm cool with number literal or ASCII sort orders, but right now I'm not understanding the current sort order.

Attached is a pic with the current sort order (masked since the list isn't suitable for public consumption). Despite clearing "Group By" and clicking on the Title Column (sending order), the sorting doesn't appear to work.

Any ideas on what I'm missing or how to continue to debug?

Thank you,
Chris

PS. I'm using the GitLab version of the code, here: https://gitlab.com/Kerenoc/GCstar/tree/Test

Re: Sort Order Issues

I can reproduce this bug in my configuration. Maybe it's related to the configuration of the language by the OS (Locale, LANG, LC_ALL, etc...).

Re: Sort Order Issues

Thank you Kerenoc,

While its not 100% yet* changing the environment from:

LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

to:
LANG=
LC_COLLATE="C"
LC_CTYPE="C"
LC_MESSAGES="C"
LC_MONETARY="C"
LC_NUMERIC="C"
LC_TIME="C"
LC_ALL=

did help. I'll need to play with this a little more and see if it effects importation, and see what other possibilities there are.

* I have a UPC titled item, 7xx41914xxxxx, in the W's, but the rest of the looks sorted correctly.


Thank you.

Re: Sort Order Issues

Hi, I have a problem with sorting my items, I have read similar things on the forum but still can't work it out. I am making a collection of movie stars and famous people, it is my husbands collection but he needs to change programs so I installed GCStar. I want to sort the list alphabetically and as he adds more then he can also reset the sorting order, I am working in windows 10. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks smile

Re: Sort Order Issues

If you created your own model of collection, you have to copy the models from the %HOMEPATH%\AppData\Roaming\gcstar\GCModels to the same place on the other computer before importing the collections themselves.
