Why is this not sorted properly? (filenames in Finder)

Dear all,
I have scanned a bunch of pictures. When the date was available, I included the date in the filename. When not available, i put the date of the scan.
My understanding of "alphabetical order" also with number is that I should be able to sort them by date based on the filename.
Isn't 2013xxxx > 1992xxxx > 1979xxxx  ??
Thanks for any hint..
Olivier.

That the listing will be

  • Why is my Numbers spreadsheet not sorting properly?

    I am working with a sheet and want to sort the sheet alphabetically by a column that is formated as text.  It is not sorting properly.  What am I missing?

    It is a column of words which are names of catagories of medicines.  When I sort the list alphabetically, part of this list seems to sort correctly and then the rest is unsorted.  The column that I am sorting on is labeled.

  • Why iMessage is not working properly anymore since i've uploaded the new iOS 6 ??

    Why iMessage is not working properly anymore since i've uploaded the new iOS 6 ??

    I'm having the same problem. I have a 4th gen 32GB iPod Touch, and since upgrading to iOS6, iMessage has been nothing but buggy. It will work for an hour or so, and then randomly stop working as it won't send or receive messages. There's nothing wrong with my wifi, because that's the same as it was before. I really hope someone knows something to fox this problem. Some people use iMessage for good reasons - it needs to be a reliable messaging service like it was in iOS5.

  • HT202853 I have many project made in move HD that are not updating to the new iMovie 10 on my new iMac.  Why is this not working as stated?  How do I get my projects back from backup after old iMac crashed?

    I have many projects made in imovie HD that are not updating to iMovie 10 on my new iMac.  Why is this not working as stated on the article HT202853?  How do I get my projects back from backup after old iMac crashed?

    According to:
    Update projects and events from previous versions of iMovie in iMovie (2014) - Apple Support
    you can update from iMovie versions 7, 8 and 9, but iMovie HD is iMovie 6.
    Maybe you can update in two steps, first from iMovie 6 to iMovie 7, 8 or 9 then to iMovie 10.

  • I want to start with audio on a timeline and add photos. Why is this not possible in the new confusing version of iMovie?

    I want to start with audio on a timeline and add photos. Why is this not possible in the new confusing version of iMovie?
    Yrs,
    Unspeakably Frustrated

    Yes, you can do this. Drag the music track to the background and start adding your pictures. A great way to do this is to use beat markers so your photos will change on the beat.
    A really fast way to do this is to line up your photos in an iPhoto album in the order you want them. You can drag the whole album into iMovie at once.
    Here is a tutorial on the beat marker feature.
    Here is a sample of a slideshow made by dragging in the music first, adding beat markers, and then adding photos.

  • HT1629 why is this not by default?

    Why is this not by default?
    This .ds_Store files clutter my synology diskstation which is accessed by windows clients (and one mac).

    .DS_Store is a file used by Finder to 'remember' your prefences for that folder or volume. Every folder on your Mac has one, and any connected HDs will also get one.
    In OS X it's hidden, but on Windows it isn't recognised and shows up as a 'ghost' file.
    You can use the free version of Tinker Tool to stop Finder from creating them on network shares.

  • IPad photo sort order issue is ridiculous. Why is this not fixed?

    Apple,
    Sometimes you might want to come down from the mountain and just fix the most obvious and insanely frustrating issues with your software. The one that rises to the top at the moment is when images are imported to iPad from folders (not iPhoto) they are not sort by name. Whose universe are you in that thinks this is helpful to anyone not using iPhoto and why did the 4.2 update not fix this issue. The iPad is made to present photos in the most amazing way. One of the top three uses for the device. Third party apps for photo presentation/portfolio are a sorry lot of problems and forcing them to import one image at a time is brutal.
    This may also be a good time to rant about changing the orientation switch on the side of the iPad. That was one thing that just worked now it doesn't. You now need to take 5 steps to stop the orientation from changing. Again in what universe is this a good idea?
    Thanks for all the incredible things you make but please take a minute and fix the simple stuff.

    Apple does not really read these forums. If you want to make a suggestion to Apple go here:

  • HT2470 Why does this not explain how to change the sort order?

    Why does this (i.e. support at Apple.com) not explain how to change the sort order? I can "arrange" by Date Modified for example but it won't let me switch to use most recent dates first. Also, what is Apple-speak for arrange versus sort anyway? It seems I used to be able to click on a column heading in finder and get a drop down arrow allowing me to change the sort sequence.

    Arrange roughly translates to "group the items in the folder." Sort is how each group is ordered. If you have arrange set to none, you can sort by anything. However, there is no way in the Arrange/Sort menu to choose the direction. The only way to do that is in the List View, and you must have Arrangement set to None.
    I've submitted an Enhancement Request to allow choosing sort direction from the Arrange/Sort menu, but I haven't ever gotten a response, which is good and bad. Good because they will often respond that they have considered it and don't plan on implementing. Bad in that they've haven't implemented it.

  • My address book in v. 32.0 will not sort properly e.g. by first, last, etc.; how can I correct this?

    My address book has 106 names. I have selected for an ascending-sort by display name. But it will not fully sort that way; instead, the names appear as batches, within each of which the sort is (mostly) correct. When I click on Name at the top, the sort toggles between ascending and descending, as expected, but the change occurs within each of the seeming batches rather than overall. Also, it seems that in 1 or more batch, the name displayed is not what I have chosen, e.g. first, last or display.
    In other words, displayed is one long list of names but it's really sets of names, that are treated as such. I want them all to be in one "set" and correctly sortable as such.

    I also have this problem sorting my address book which did not occur until I updated to Version 32.0. I will go back to version 31 but v32 needs to have someone look at the sort module and make corrections.

  • Albums are not sorted properly by their titles

    I'm using itunes for windows (the latest version).
    And I have a problem with album sorting - they're not being properly sorted by their titles.
    As you can see it from above, I'm grouping music by genres and inside one genre (in this case, piano sonata), I want to sort them with their titles.
    I chose the option which says it sorts by title, but as you can see it's not working properly.
         Chopin (C) - Schumann (S) - Liszt (L) - Barber (B)...
    Actually most of albums are sorted correctly, but only some of the albums seem to be put on the wrong places.
    Is this problem known and is there way to fix this?
    It's not a critical problem but it's quite annoying for me...
    If there's a way please let me know.
    Thank you!

    HJ Lee,
    For one of the  problem tracks, right-click, Get Info and look at the Sorting tab.  There may be information there that is overriding the main tags. 
    If so, you can edit it in that tab.

    Hello ap76t3,
    The Refresh feature (called "Reset" in older Firefox versions) can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your bookmarks, history, passwords, cookies, and other essential information.
    '''''Note:''' When you use this feature, you will lose any extensions, toolbar customizations, and some preferences.'' See the [[Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings]] article for more information.
    To Refresh Firefox:
    # Open the Troubleshooting Information page using one of these methods:
    #*Click the menu button [[Image:New Fx Menu]], click help [[Image:Help-29]] and select ''Troubleshooting Information''. A new tab containing your troubleshooting information should open.
    #*If you're unable to access the Help menu, type '''about:support''' in your address bar to bring up the Troubleshooting Information page.
    #At the top right corner of the page, you should see a button that says "Refresh Firefox" ("Reset Firefox" in older Firefox versions). Click on it.
    #Firefox will close. After the refresh process is completed, Firefox will show a window with the information that is imported.
    #Click Finish and Firefox will reopen.
    Did this fix the problem? Please report back to us!
    Thank you.

  • Why "RequestContext had not been properly released on earlier request"?

    Hi all,
    When looking at the server logs, it shows this line: <Warning> <org.apache.myfaces.trinidadinternal.config.GlobalConfiguratorImpl> <BEA-000000> <RequestContext had not been properly released on earlier request.>. What could be the cause for this warning and what's the implication when this occurs?
    I found in one post (http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.jakarta.myfaces.devel/35325) that it mentioned possible reasons: Is the filter exectured twice ? Or do you have multiple Trinidad JARs (two -impl or so) on the classpath ?
    Which filter is it talking about in web.xml?
    Thanks,

    wihtout knowing your exact jdev version nobody can tell. Read your post and you see that we can't answer any of your quetsions whithout knowing much more about your app and your environment.
    do you have the exact same error as in the link you provided? I don't think so.
