I think that not being able to sort by path in the flat view cuts in half the merits of this feature. When I first tried this new function I ran into the same problem within 10 seconds.

In the normal, hierarchical view, the path is the same for all files, and falling back to sorting by name when sorting by path is requested is a quite reasonable thing to do. But flat view needs a different approach..

Unfortunately I don't have Total Commander installed to check how this works out there because I bid farewell to it some two years ago.

Really like the flat view, but to be really useful it needs to be sortable by path.

The original download (Version 2009.02b) from http://www.freecommander.com/fc_downl_en.htm has no problem with sorting by path.
