Find, sort and position

Post by mdruiter » 18 Feb 2016, 17:29

The block selection start position in Find is strange after sorting.
I try:
- search for (find) a long list of files and folders
- go to position 20 or so
- sort (say by size) so the selected line moves
- press Shift+Down to add the next line to the selection
The selection now starts at the former selected position! :(

If I press Down, Up first and then walk using Shift, everything works like expected: it resets the position.

A similar situation has been worked around before.
