Logical sort - as in: 1,2...10,11 not: 1,10,11,2

I searched the forums for logical sort and could only find some posts from 2015 about it being considered.

Is it implemented, and if so, how do you enable it?
If not, is it on the "TODO-list"?
If not, could you create a custom query thru the SDK?

in any case, as always: thanks for a wonderful application!

This is also called numerical sort and searching for that brought this thread to light.

TL;DR: Not yet available. Possibly i the next major version of Everything (unknown release date).

This is a feature I'd * DEARLY * love to have in Everything, notwithstanding the downsides as explained in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6547

Perhaps incorporating a switch to toggle this feature on / off could be used? That would be the best of both worlds. I'd consider the short wait while the database rebuilds a minor inconvenience, when numerical sorting is wanted.

Please consider this !!
