Sorting : indicate in title

Post by meteorquake » Fri Aug 05, 2022 4:10 pm

When you sort by a key stroke eg Ctrl-6 you may already be on that sort and so get the reverse result. The existing sort may not be visible, for example you might have just launched a window and some pre-existing sort is already there, but invisible if the column heading is off the screen edge or you're in a thumbnails view.
My recommendation is when you do a sort by a keystroke or newly focus the window, the title bar should reflect the sort at least until updated eg ".... Sort: Date"
This means you open a window or do a sort and the head is not visible you can just glance to the titlebar to see what you've got.
I find this is quite a regular issue as I constantly launch windows and constantly sort by name or date.

I have put on my TODO list to add an option to show the current sort in the window title.

Thank you for your suggestion.
