Hello,

 

I've seen a few different posts about this from a few years ago but nothing recent. How are we able to sort the Files pane so that folders show up together on top (sorted alphabetically) with the files below (also sortedalphabetically)?

 

I am aware that we can sort by type, but that simply sorts by typealphabetically. The results in some files being at the top, then folders grouped together in the middle, then more files below. This feature exists and works well in CS6. However after upgraded to Dreamweaver 20 it seems to have gone away.

 

As an example this is what we are looking for:

  • Folder A
  • Folder B
  • Folder C
  • Folder D
  • apple.php
  • data.zip
  • home.php
  • sample.xml

Which operating system do you have?

 

On Win10, my Files panel (F8) displays folders on top and root level files below. See screenshot.

I have sorted by Type (arrow up) and Local Files (arrow up).  It makes no difference.
