Sorting files in the source folder

HalinaGold Hi -

I created the files for my ebook in Front Page. I called them 001.htm, 002.htm etc hoping this will be the order in which they will appear in the Files tab...
But they don't! So I have to move them around, one by one.
It takes time and I wonder if there is a better way...
1. Is it possible to tell the compiler in which way you'd like to sort the files?
2. Or could you tell me what determines the order in which files appear in the Files tab?

Thank you!

dreuby The files tab allows you to include and exclude files from your book. You can use the arrows on the toolbar to move the files up and down into the order that you want them to appear in the book.

Click a filename to highlight it, and use the up and down arrows to move it in the list. You can call the files anything you want - this won't affect the order in which they appear in the book.

EBookCompiler The default sorting is alphabetic by title.

The arrow toolbars can be used to rearrange the order

HalinaGold Thank you both for taking the time.
Thank you Sunil for info about sorting criteria.
Have you considered adding other sorting features?
Maybe a special sorting string that could be specified within the HTML of a page? (maybe inside a HTML comment?)

If you create a rather huge ebook (100+ pages), and you don't want to sort it by title, then moving one page at a time is very tiresome...

Thank you
