Heya,
looks like the inbox, if sorting by 'Path' is behaving differently than the standard tracks view. As is in 3.1.6287 Path does sort by path, but ignores secondary sorting / the fileName alphabetical sorting.

i.e. in main library tracks view, sorted by Path only, I see this:
/filePath/01_fileName.ext
/filePath/02_fileName.ext
/filePath/03_fileName.ext
/filePath/04_fileName.ext
/filePath/05_fileName.ext


In Inbox, sorted by Path only, I see this:
/filePath/04_fileName.ext
/filePath/02_fileName.ext
/filePath/05_fileName.ext
/filePath/01_fileName.ext
/filePath/03_fileName.ext

 (random example... not necessarily in that order... but definitely not alphabetic by fileName as a second sorting facet, which seems to be the default in standard tracks view now).

Cheers.
c.

path only sorts the file path. To sort the entire file location (path+filename) you need to sort by URL

Heh, interesting. URL is indeed what I am after...
Then what I saw over the last weeks was all coincidence i.e. that most in my inbox when looking at it was non-URL and everything in my main library, despite only being sorted by path, was alphabetical...

Thanks for the info!
