How do I customize the file display format in Corel Word Perfect?


When I go to Corel Word Perfect 7/File/Open, the files are in reverse alphabetical order. How do I get them in alphabetical order?


This question was answered on August 22, 1999. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

To change the default format (how the files are listed) of the File Manager file list, use the following steps:

1 Enter WPWin, and select File Manager from the File menu (the default display of File Manager shows the Navigator and Viewer)

2 Click on View|Layouts|Navigator|File List|Viewer (a Files List window should now appear each time File Manager is entered)

3 Click on View|Options

4 Set the Sort selections as desired (date, time, descriptive name, appendix, alphabetic, etc.)

5 Click on File|Preferences|Environment, and verify that the "Save Current Layout on Exit" is marked with an X Do not close the File List window in File Manager If it is closed, the settings will not be retained when File Manager is exited.
