BUG: When sorting by random order, it randomizes again every time we switch to another tab...

Post by ghost zero »

When sorting by random order, it randomizes again every time we switch to another tab and back, within the same pane. Please fix, so that it maintains the random order until we manually randomize it again.

the current behavior is not desired. we naturally would expect the randomization to only happen once per activation of the command. can you change the behavior, or at least give us an option?

NOTE: it doesn't have this problem when we switch tabs between panes. it is only a problem when switching tabs within in the same pane.

The sorting is applied after the list is filled. No plans to change this.

after the randomization is applied, can you make it automatically switch to a manual sorting mode so the current randomized order is retained even if we switch tabs within the same pane? or add an option for this?

Well, I got curious for theoretical reasons, and found that it would be easy to change it the way you desire. I can also kind of see the point of it.

But I would like to hear a 2nd opinion: Should a random order be restored between tab switches? (I would say: Yes)

Well, thinking about it even longer I think the change makes all sense. XY philosophy has always been: find it as you left it. So I'll give it a go.

I'm coming late to the party but yeah, I didn't like the behaviour in OP, definitely good now in 21.70.0101! :tup: :party: :cup:

there is still a problem in which it randomizes again every time we add a new item into the directory. please fix.
