Editor: Sorting in Project Window

General

-

-

For windows users, the most common sorting in most applications sorts folders and files in the same window separately, i.e. when sorting by name, folders appear alphabetically in the list first, followed by an alphabetical list of files. This works great for organization, and the more complex your folder structure, the more the lack of this sorting really stands out.

    It's been almost 9 years since this was created and unity team still don't give the slightest s**t about it.
    What a shame...

    Sorting by size, particularly when viewing specific asset types, would also be of interest

    I really don't understand why such as simple and potentially useful configuration option is missing.

    I'd also prefer to see folders sorted before files. Just make it an option.

    Lack of this feature REALLY freaks me out. Every time I find my subfolder in the bottom of parent folder (after all files) I receive brain damage.

    I would definitely like if at least the subfolders showed up alphabetically together above the files in the folder. Kind of annoying that they are sorted with other files in the folder...

    I would at least like the folders to show up before the files do... in fact it would be nice if it sorts by type, and then alphabetically. Of course this is only if they don't give you option of how to sort.

    Sorting by kind (as in filetype) would be awesome too.

    Currenty naming my folders with '-' prefix.
