Tips and tricks for Haiku/BeOS users

Precision file sorting

Contributed by: Scot Hacker
This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

Like other OSs, BeOS will let you display a list of files in the Tracker according to certain criteria. For instance, to view all your files alphabetically, click the Name header at the top of the column (you need to be in List view to make this work).

But BeOS goes one better than that by allowing for a sort within a sort. Establish your first sort criteria, then hold down the Shift key and sort by a second criteria. You can, for instance, get a Modified Date sort to appear within your alpha sort.
