Resource Manager Alphabetization


Ever since the upgrade to 2017, I've noticed that the Resource Manager (looking at Textures in particular) orders resources with all of the capitalized names first, A-Z, followed by all the lower case textures, a-z. I have to hope that this is a bug and not intentional, since separating the resources based on whether or not you capitalized the name is not helpful organization.


Here's a screenshot from someone else's file in which I've begun working, where you can see how the resources are being ordered. For example, I shouldn't have to remember whether it's Brick or brick when locating a texture. (Ideally all of the textures would be capitalized, which I tend to do myself, but I often work on files begun by other people with a wide spectrum of organizational approaches.)

That's gotta be a bug. I'm a stickler for capitalization in my resource naming so I never noticed this before, apologies.

Submitting it now. VB-140819

This was fixed in 2018! Woohoo! It's been driving me crazy lately as I've been collaborating on files with someone who capitalizes nothing (while I capitalize everything).
