Numbering Files out of order

Mea Culpa if this has already been dealt with.

I was transferring 19 files from the draft folder of one project to the draft folder of another project.

The files were chapter numbers that began: 1. Chapter One, — through to — 19. Chapter Nineteen. So I used a number sequence from 1 to 19. Each number was immediately followed by a period, then there was a space and then text.

When I dragged the 19 chapters they were number reversed as follows:

19, 18, 17 … 11, 10. Then 1, 2, 3, … 8, 9.

MAYBE this means something.

:confused:

Thanks, will look into it. Were they all reversed, then?

I tried it again and this time the sequence was 19 back to 1 in perfect order.

Last time the sequence was 19 back to 10 then the rest of the numbers in correct order 1 to 9.

Hmm, I need to check this out more. Is there any way you can always reproduce it?
Thanks!

Yes Keith,

It looks like this in the original Draft Folder:

Title Page

  1. The Kadaitcha Man Calls
  2. That is not Possible
    .
    .
    .
  3. The Teacher
  4. New Journey

And looks like this after dragging these draft chapters to the draft folder of a new project.

  1. New Journey
  2. The Teacher
    .
    .
    .
  3. That is not Possible
  4. The Kadaitcha Man Calls
    Title Page

It happens every time.

Is it perhaps a preference setting or something I have overlooked?

Okay, thanks! I’ve fixed this for beta 5. Until then, you can drag things across in the right order by dropping between items - the bug only occurs when you drop “on” (or “into”) a document in the other project. I just needed to deal with these two situations in reverse order from one another in my code, which was easy to do (I fixed a similar bug ages ago, but just missed it in this particular situation).
Thanks,
Keith
