This makes it hard to find a particular folder when there are many.

Done, hash:   1d340241e02124ff7e221a2c9fa74b29ce0a5d0d
Comment 7 Lluis Sanchez 2014-05-02 10:43:23 UTC
Should be fixed in
Comment 8 Akhilesh kumar 2014-05-05 01:59:43 UTC
I have checked this issue with following builds:

X.S 5.0(Build 839)
Git revision: ea6a454f1af1af09dd11b1441507fae2dc0a8414

I am still getting same behavior, Folders are not sorted. This is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/v21TxZrktEF

Hence reopening this issue.
Comment 9 Lluis Sanchez 2014-05-05 06:34:18 UTC
That's the expected behavior for F# projects (but only for F#). In F#, file and folder ordering has an effect on how the project is compiled, so we can't sort by name for those projects.
Comment 10 Mohit Kheterpal 2014-05-05 08:21:58 UTC
I have checked this issue with XS 5.0 (build 839), Now I have created an Android C# project and this issue does not exist as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/3Lm64ftKsG4
i.e. all folders added in sorted manner.

Hence, closing this issue.
Comment 11 Paul Johnson 2014-05-05 11:48:30 UTC
I've created a fresh project (I don't have any of the F# stuff installed at all). The directory listings down the side a *not* alphabetical - makes no difference if it's imported from old or from new, iOS or Android, the project directories are not alphabetical
Comment 12 Lluis Sanchez 2014-05-05 13:28:43 UTC
Paul, the fix is not included in the alpha release. F# support is now included by default in XS, it doesn't have to be installed separately.
Comment 13 Paul Johnson 2014-05-05 14:02:12 UTC
Ah, OK.
