Here's a list of docs with date stamps at the end of the filename.
Some contained typos (which I'm about to fix) causing them to be one character longer than the others. This extra character changed the sort order in a surprising way.
some name 2015xxx before
some name 2014xxxX (when it is after
some name 2014xxx)?
I'd expect the length of the filename to make no difference, and for it to sort by first character then second character then third etc. I'd expect all the 2014s to be together, followed by all the 2015s, regardless of length.
This is Finder on Lion. The sort is the same whether it is set to "Name" or "None". Fixing the typos caused the order to behave as expected (2014s then 2015s).
Is this some kind of feature designed to make files like
version 9 come before files like
