Incorrect Title Sort

I have a series that is improperly title sorting. 1 is showing above 10, 2 above 20, and so on.

How do I get it to sort the number properly.


An example of what I am talking about.

Calibre (and many file managers) does Alpha sorts (left to right character weights)

If you want 5 to be befor 50, then it is 05, 50 pad single digits with leading 0's
There are examples on how to do this on the Save to Device template form

I'm not finding that Tweak. I found Recognize numbers inside text when sorting

I have a hard time finding certain Tweaks since they are not in any kind of order (alphabetical). So it may be there.

Thanks for a GREAT program Kovid.

Thanks for that.
I didn't find that tweak, but ID: numeric_collation was what I was looking for.

Did you find that under Tweaks? I couldn't find that either.

I suspect Kovid was typing from memory. I used the Recognize numbers inside text when sorting option and it worked fine for sorting book titles 'correctly'. There's really no difference (to a programmer) between "in string" and "inside text".

I notice there's a comment on this tweak that enabling it may cause issues with titles that begin with numbers. What sort of issues are likely to arise?

Not sure, I think the sorting for them is incorrect, other than that, I cant remember any issues.
