"save to disk" name export

Hi all,
I have a question regarding the "Save to disk" naming convention; it seems that the export module uses the "title_sort" and a "series_sort" (even if no such thing seems configurable) in place of "title" and "series". Is it a bug or am I missing some congiguration parameters?

To clarify with an example:
I have an EPUB book called "The night flight", the 3rd volume of the series "The seven adventures"

The corresponding metadata variables should be:

Title "The night flight"
Title_sort "night flight, The"
Series "The seven adventures"
Series_sort "seven adventures, The" (ASSUMED, I cannot find the variable)
series_index "3.0"

if I use an export string like
[{series} - {series_index:0>2s} - {title}]
I would expect the ebook to be named
"The seven adventures - 03 - The night flight.epub"
however I end up with a file called
"seven adventures, The - 03 - night flight, The.epub"

Thanks for your help

Maurizio

You can customize how series and title should be formatted when used in templates. By default "library_order" is used. You seem to prefer "strictly_alphabetical".

You have to manually edit the tweak. More details in the manual, see save_template_title_series_sorting:
