Sorting videos on playlist by name

What is your operating system?

What is your Shotcut version (see Help > About Shotcut)? Is it 32-bit?
20.09.27. No its 64bit

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?
When I do sort by name on my videos on playlist

Like video.mp4, video(1).mp4, … video(40).mp4

When I ask to sort by name it goes like

video(1).mp4, …, video(40).mp4, video.mp4

If you can fix this … thanks a lot !

This happens because “(” comes before “.”. I think it is unlikely that we will change anything to make that naming scheme sort the way you want. Can you just name the files differently?


Thanks a lot … I will proceed as suggested I will make video.mp4, video2.mp4 instead I was doing it

I need this sequence to help me to place videos recorded time :slight_smile:


The playlist also has a feature to sort by date/time.

thanks again
