I was using MusicBee 3.0 and I finally upgraded, but now the sort order of my 0-9 artists has been thrown off:

It used to sort like this: 1, 10, 2, 20, 2000, 3, 300, 4, etc
But now sorts like this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 20, 300, 2000, etc

Even more oddly it still uses the old sorting method when I go into Artist view as opposed to Album Covers view.  Is there a way to revert back to the old sorting setting or am I going to have use a bunch of convoluted Sort Artist tags to make it work?

The way it was sorting in 3.0 was 'incorrect' and it was fixed in October of 2016. It was sorting by ASCII characters instead of numerical.

Ah, phred beat me to it.  Glad you could find the actual post! If there's somewhere it hasn't been changed to numerical order, that should be corrected, at the very least for consistency.

All right.  Well, that explains one side of it, then.  Any idea why it would be inconsistent b/w Artist View and Cover View?

Probably just an oversight.
