Tried that but it doesn't seem to work either. Do you mean I have to put a space in front of EVERY folder name maybe? Didn't try that - rather tedious but will do if necessary.
Thanks for v quick response.
Still no good I'm sure I'm missing something!
So I'm only really bothered about one folder in Finder. Within that folder I have 9 folders. All of them now have spaces (it wasn't even tedious!) but nothing has changed.
I've tried variations on Sort by name and sort by kind, no change. All docs first, then folders.
Surely I don't have to put the space in front of every folder and sub folder??
I had a quick look at mucommander but don't feel keen to go for that just now.
Thanks but I'm afraid as I use the system very little I don't want to pay any extra - good value though it may be. It's not a critical issue either - just a frustration. Sorry. I will try spaces before ALL folders - seems weird as you'd think different folders could be set up to behave differently.
What difference does Arrange by Name Sort by kind make?
Brilliant that has done it. Both set to Name and it works. I didn't have to do it in every folder.
Thank you very much indeed, brilliant service!
