    Not sure if this was asked before. A quick search returned nothing. Anyway, I just got a new tablet with android 4 on it. And it doesn't seem to show the correct ordering of numbers (filename). Say, I have 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg all the way to 15.jpg. Normally, you would expect it to be ordered as 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11, and so on. In my case, it's 1,10,11,12,13,14,15,2,3,4,5~. It's not limited to ES filemanager. Even imageviewers seem to defy the logic as well. So I'm beginning to think this is a hardcoded one. Is there a fix available to this? Or is there a section in the settings that I missed?

    Name files as 01, 02...09, 10,11, etc. and they will show in the proper order.

    Thanks for the reply. Not precisely the work-around I was expecting. It would be too much of a hassle to rename my image collections one by one. But thanks anyway. I've been considering batch renaming them as a plan B. Thanks for the reply. :)
