Hello Jesper,

today I tried to select multiple entries from one of the list boxes by typing 
some letters. That way I wasn't able to select multiple entries from the list 
(I tried it in the search dialog).

Here come's the second version of my proposal:
You like your kind of sorting. To me (perhaps to other users as well) it's not 
that obvious and perhaps not that straight forward.
So what about asking the user how to sort? I could think of several ways to do 
Let's have a context menu for sorting, available at each list box (momentarily 
it offers renaming, etc. for an selected item; it could have some sorting 
entries as well): "sort by most recent use", "sort by name".
Alternatively you could have a sort toggle button near every list box. One 
state is for "sort by most recent use" (showing an calendar icon), the other 
one is "sort by name" (showing a letter).
Or you could have both.
You also could integrate the way of sorting into to kimdaba config dialog 
where you define the picture categories.
I'd like the idea to have different ways to configure sorting and to save this 
info with the kimdaba index.xml file.

Is this something you could think about?
