It is my understanding that the collating sequence is different from what is on the Evernote Legacy.

Answer I got from "Support" about what is literally a bug.

Also, the price of Evernote is going up to $129.99USD:

It's unbelievably disappointing the loss of functionality between Legacy and the current version. It's hard to not see this as a cash grab.

I think there is a "text to number" conversion going on in the titles in v10 as far as title ordering goes.

Here I have 10 notes, 1 through 10. When I order by title, the '10 - Note' comes after the '9 - Note'. If it was going purely alphabetically, the '10 - Note' should come immediately after the '1 - Note'. (I don't have Legacy installed anymore to see how Legacy would be behave in this example.)


Also check out how it puts '005' in between '4' and '6' even though that note starts with a '0' so it should go before '1' -- if it was a true alphabetical sort.

I think in your example, the preceding zeros are all equating to the same value -- 0 -- as far as sorting purposes go.

Your post about the iOS sort order is different than the one you just posted just now.
