Sorting Author and Series at startup

I hope I can explain this.

I have column sort at start up this way

sort_columns_at_startup = (('authors', 0), ('series', 0), ('title', 0)).

This sorts things just like I want except for one thing. Author A. has a series numbered 1,2,3. Author B. writes something about this series. I would like to have this sort as number 4 of Author A's series. Can this be done?

Thanks for any help.

You have 3 possible conflicting sorts.
Sorting Title After series is nonsense. It is either a Series Or a Title order. It can't be both.

Sorting by Author vs Series is another Priority issue

Try to Sort: Titles first, Authors Next Which leaves Authors with the Titles in order, then sort by Series Which will adjust a few Authors

You can try this by simply clicking the Column headers in that order
