If you are having problems sorting entries, here are a couple of tips:
- Enable the Sort Title field under Preferences-> Fields. Then copy the titles into this field
- Experiment turning off and on the "Ignore foreign articles during title sort" option under Preferences-> General
- Sort through more than one column at a time: first click the second column to sort through (that's right, last one first), then the first column. Entries will be sorted in that order with the last column you clicked being the most recent one.
