Hey, James:

QRecall saved my bacon for the first time today! I had just downloaded a new version of some software and trashed the previous version. Unfortunately the new version seems to have some serious problems and garbled its database. With QRecall I was able to quickly and easily restore both yesterday's version of the database and and previous version of the app! Hooray for QRecall!

Anyway, when digging out the previous version of the app, I noticed that QRecall seems to have a bit of a sorting issue. In my application folder I've got a batch of folders forced to the top of the list by prefixing their names with a space:


AUDIO apps
BIDDING APPS
CHAT APPS
GRAPHIC APPS
INTERNET APPS
MEDIA PLAYER APPS
MIDI Utilies
MUSIC APPS
MUSIC Labelling apps
OCR programs
TEXT APPS
video efx
WEB DESIGN apps
ABBYY FineReader 5 Sprint


In QRecall, the sort order gets messed up:


AUDIO apps
BIDDING APPS
OCR programs
TEXT APPS
video efx
WEB DESIGN apps
ABBYY FineReader 5 Sprint


And then way down at the bottom of the app folder:


WakeOnLan
zotware
CHAT APPS
GRAPHIC APPS
INTERNET APPS
MEDIA PLAYER APPS
MIDI Utilies
MUSIC APPS
MUSIC Labelling apps
video efx


Is there something going on that I'm missing, or is this a buglet?

Thanks,

If I had to guess, I'd say that some of your folder names begin with <space> and others begin with Option+<space> (non-breaking space).

QRecall uses a Unicode comparision function supplied by Mac OS X that's supposed to sort exactly the same way the Finder does. Clearly some investigation is in order. Which is actually good timing, as I'm in the process of reengineering the way that strings are managed internally.

You guessed right. I pasted the list into Word and could see the non-breakers.

What was I thinking!

Sorry for the blind alley.

Best,

Steve
