Then I'm stumped... Locale Search wouldn't affect this at all. Only columns from Plugins are populated "as visible" (literally, they are calculated as you scroll through a folder, each appearing at the bottom), so that's the only thing I can think of.

Does the old (annoying) 512 version sort everything properly (especially if you have NOT previously scrolled the entire length of the folder contents first)?

I did add the column-selection thing to SortByRegEx, which theoretically could interfere, but it works perfectly for me. If the older one works better for you, then I can just modify the window activation fix for that one and run away to become a tonsured old monk in the woods, never to know love again, preying upon unwary passers-by for food and grub, sucking their souls dry of any warmth they ever knew in their short horrid lives. Let me know.

the old version worked fine, the double version window flash is something I can live with no problems.

edit; I tried something (latest version), after a bottle of something...
I first manually scrolled down to the end of the column, highlighted the last item and then initiated date sort and it now works fine. amazing stuff :beer:

infact I'm so chuffed I'm going to open another bottle of something.
