find in files - results are unsorted
« on: July 15, 2016, 06:21:48 pm »
Used to be that find in files results were pretty much in sorted directory order.


Now it appears more random..
I get results like


C:\a\b\c\d\file1
C:\q\b\c\file1
[/size]C:\a\b\c\d\file2
[/size]C:\a\b\c\x\file1
[/size]
But, I'd rather see:

C:\a\b\c\d\file1
[/size]C:\a\b\c\d\file2C:\a\b\c\x\file1C:\q\b\c\file1


...


Automatically reordering the search results, or after the search, it annoying as well.
Perhaps a context menu with sorting options?


Even better ... make search results more structured, like "Message list".
A list with headers: line, col, text
