Simply changing the Unsorted DMode sort to Name, Ascending, Path On will still not produce the desired result, because in DMode that sort order is not the same as it is in FMode.

To illustrate, if the directory structure is:

[image]

Then in the FMode Branch Window, sort by Name, Ascending, Path On, lists the files in those directories in this directory order:

DirSortTest
AAA
BBB
CCC
DDD
EEE
FFF
GGG
HHH
III
JJJ
KKK
LLL
MMM
NNN

That is the sequence they appear in the Tree Window, and is what is expected with Path On. (Note, the subdirectories are in alphabetical order only because the tree is constructed in that order for illustration purposes. They will be in Tree sequence regardless of the names.)

But in the DMode Branch Window, that same sort spec lists those directories in this order:

[image]

So in DMode, the directories are being sorted in name sequence by subdirectory levels within subdirectory levels, rather than simply in the Tree Window sequence.

With Path On they should be in Tree sequence, as they are in FMode. And like in FMode, Unsorted should be the same.
