Does anybody know of a way to have your books auto sort by release date as opposed to published date.
example: I sync and load all my DC books (new 52) and if I sort by published, it sorts by month/year, then alphabetically....when the books are released in crossover stories, they are out of sequence for my reading pleasure :(
If I could have them sort by release date, it would flow correctly

thanks for any and all advice!

Have them sorted by release date in the Windows smartlist, then, in the sync options, leave "sort" unticked.
Over on Android, choose "Not sorted", and it will display them in the same order as they are on the Windows smartlist
I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack!!

Are you sure you have the Windows Smartlist set to sort by "Released" (in the smartlist view, not the sync settings)?

In the dialogue box where you set the smartlist to sync, make sure the "Sort by" box is unchecked.
That should sync the comics in the order in which they appear in the Windows programme, unless you've stumbled upon some strange bug :)

by unchecking sorting in the device preferences by default "sorts" them by position and not as seen on screen order. Its not a bug its just what it does.

I'll confirm that it defaults to "Sort by Position" if you leave the box unchecked. Been trying various combinations of the available sort options in the CRA app and Windows interface. No luck. I'm trying to get the list to sort by "Alternate Number" but haven't really managed to get close. I've tried it with both a smart list and a simple list but they both end up the same on my tablet.


Update: Upon further review, it appears that leaving the "Sort By" box unchecked and having the Smart List sorted by "Alternate Number" did work. Mostly. One book had some sort of error that caused it to be out of order, but it looks like all the others are in the right order. That one book just happened to be the one I was using as part of the reference for success.

I wonder if sorting by release date will not work due to release date not captured in comic info section?
If I had a script to populate release date in alternate number, that would work...maybe..but I have no idea how to do that. :(
