Sort-indicator arrows on columns



  • Having a sort-indicator arrow on whatever column was being sorted on would make it a little easier to tell at a glance what column was being used for sorting.

    I’m just talking about a little arrow that points up (indicating ascending) or down (indicating descending), right in the column header. I’ve attached a screen shot of how WinRAR incorporates this little feature.

  • I support your wish.
    This would be a handy feature



  • I already has this. It’s a ‘+’ or a ‘-’

  • NOw I has it, too.

    For the first time you can’t see them.

    You have to push on the columns, then you see the arrows.

    So I think this feature request can be closed 😉



  • What? I have no idea what you mean. Push on the columns? I have done that–many times–and I don’t have anything on them. I can change the sort order and click on the columns all day long, and no “+” or “-” appears on them. This is with PowerArchiver 9.00.31.

    Maybe this is another example of PowerArchiver still not working correctly at 120 DPI.



  • It really works, have a look at my Screenshot

  • Yeah, well it doesn’t work on mine. I can post a screen shot of that, too, if you want me to.

    Why did the other guy say it was a “+” or “-”, when what you show is an arrow? And what version (Help > About) are you using?

    Maybe it’s a DPI issue, or a language issue. I am using the English version.



  • I’m using Powerarchiver 2004 9.0



  • I have a feeling I’m going to dump PowerArchiver again. I don’t have the time or patience for this garbage.

    • arrow will not show if you have “original order” option setup in config, until you re-sort it.
    • In WinXP with themes enabled, +/- will show instead of arrow.
    • works fine in 120 dpi.

    And thank you for your kind comments nameless, you are very helpful and supportive, as always.



  • The arrow wouldn’t show up for me, even after re-sorting. And re-sorting. Again and again. Nothing would make it appear for me.

    Well, sorry for the harsh words, but it gets frustrating to try new versions of PA over and over, and seeing the same things–and new frustrations–each time. (The arrow issue isn’t a good example of that, but…)

    Don’t worry though; I’m out for now. See you for version 10. 🙂



  • The indication appears when you activate View-Explorer style. It does not appear in View-Classic style. 😕
    However, it only appears in explorer mode (with no open archives)!!

    Open any archive, now there is NO indication of the sorting order.
    I believe this is the view nameless was referring to as that is the RAR view he attached in the original post.

    on both Win98 and Win2k? And if you resort?



  • on both Win98 and Win2k? And if you resort?

    Only able to confirm for Win2k at the moment.
    No indicators in open archive view (both classic and explorer styles).
    No indicators in explorer (no archive open) view using classic style.

    I guess you mean restart (not resort) ? If so, no change - still no indicators.



  • on both Win98 and Win2k? And if you resort?

    Same in W98
    No indicators in open archive view (both classic and explorer styles).
    No indicators in explorer (no archive open) view using classic style.

    I guess you mean restart (not resort) ? If so, no change - still no indicators.

    P.S. Are you suggesting this should be a Bug and not a wishlish item?



  • I tried Explorer and Classic views as well; no indicators in either view. I can’t remember if I tried it with no archive open. This is on WinXP.



  • Sneaky… PA 9.00.33

    The arrow indication appears when you activate View-Explorer style with no open archives.

    Open any archive, (explorer or classic) now the indication of the sorting order is the + or -.

    So far only checked under Win2k



  • oh you are right.

    The indicators just appear, if no archive is open. if you have opened an archive you can’t see the indicator.

    so this is a BUG 😞



  • f you have opened an archive you can’t see the indicator

    You can in 9.00.33 (dated today - did you get it yet? )
    It is the + or - after the column headers.

    Also in Win98 🙂
