I did say "from memory" ;-)

Having Alt-Sort as a way to change the behavior of filter and display, is not intuitive, so there is some work to be done to improve the interface.

As Alt-Sort,F4 has a toggle for the 3 dates, they must be all now logged, which means they can (technically) can be sorted(done), filtered, displayed, and in ZLOG(I presume done).

So
Display: would need my Alt-Filedisplay ZEP and/or a YACO
Filter datespec: to include Created, Written, Accessed, I expect something like ">c2019-01-01".
