Sort by size does not work on folders.

Sorting the details view by size does not work for folders.

Does it work for you, BGM, if you enable File/Folder List > Sorting tab
[x] Folders Like Files ?

Note that folders and files sort together then.
(It works for me in FC-XE 613; Win7/64.)

Oh - maybe that would do it. For some reason, I thought I should be able to NOT sort them together, yet be able to sort them by file size separately. Maybe that can't be done...

Do you want to sort it like this?

Dreamer, yes, exactly (except for the funky colours :P ).

That's exactly how it works for me with these settings:

I use the same options, except Natural sorting and it works good.

Sometimes it's not auto-refreshed, so try to refresh manually.

Joby, Dreamer, ah - that was it. I had "Sort folders always by name" - I didn't realize it would override the manual sorting in details view.

It works now as expected.

Thanks y'all!

You're welcome.

It's not a bug, topic closed.
