Description S. Burmeister 2009-12-09 19:51:48 UTC
Version:           1.0.0 (using KDE 4.3.4)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    openSUSE RPMs

If one uses View > Sort Albums > By Date the oldest albums are shown on top. If one wants to have the newest albums on top one can click on the column heading and change the sorting from ascending to descending. Yet if one quits digikam and re-opens it, it always shows the newest albums on top, i.e. does not remember whether the user chose ascending or descending sorting.

Johannes,

This bug must in add to model view port of album tree view...

It's already on my TODO list there.

Sorting albums seems to be gone from the menu... have we removed this feature on purpose?
Comment 4 Johannes Wienke 2010-12-04 13:27:20 UTC
For me the sorting works as expected after restarting digikam.

Was it in the menu before? I cannot remember this. With a click on the header in tree view it works.

Since one cannot sort the album-tree by date anymore, how can you test whether "sort by date asc/desc" is remembered across sessions?

Bug 227530 needs to be fixed before one can re-test this.

Oh, I did not see the date. Sorry.
