Sort By Date Default

Postby sizzlingbadger » Fri Jun 28, 2013 12:28 am

v 7.1.3 on OSX

How can I set C1 catalog to sort my images by date by default ?

The default setting is sort by name. I can change this to date on each folder but I have 1000's of folders.

Parent folders don't remember their sort criteria. When I start C1 up the parent folders all revert back to sort by Name.

A big +1 from me on this one as well. Don't understand why name and not date is the default, a having to change it on every folder is silly. Don't understand what you mean by "Parent folders don't remember their sort criteria" though.

Cheers,

+++++++1000. Any wedding or multiple shooter/camera event requires this. It just makes sense.

I think I have this one figured out.
Y'all may already do this, but I was bored and wanted to figure it out.
Set the sort preferences to "Date"
Then save the workspace.
It worked in catalogs but when I tried a test session it wouldn't take.
However, when I populated the session with photos, it worked.
So in essence: make your changes, create a custom workspace and they will stick.
The only thing is, you have to do this for each session. You dont have to create a new workspace, just update the custom workspace you created.
Having a default setting would be nice but this isn't a horrible workaround.

I know this is kinda old, but just wanted to say thanks to Jimmy who was the only one to post a possible solution, still works in C1 v10, this sorting by Name thing has been driving me nuts.
