Ordering the results by type

Asked by PIGEON Alexandre on 2011-03-21

Hi,
When searching things in the category "all" it would be nice if the results were sorted by type (applications, folder,documents,music,video...) kind of what "spotlight" does.
Would it be possible to add an option where you can choose how the results are ordered (alphabetical, most used, type).
Thanks, Alex.

Synapse's UI as well as backend are optimized for "I'm searching for this kind of thing" (it takes a few arrow keypresses to pick a category and search within a particular domain is much faster), categorizing the results in All category goes against that, you know what you're looking for before you see the results, don't you?

That being said it would be nice to be able to pick most popular vs most recently used ordering.

I can say that in the future we're planning to make it possible to create your own categories (based on specific result types).

Thanks Alberto, that solved my question.
