How to sort virtual copies independently of the originals?

Hello,

I have created several virtual copies of several images. I have assigned notes to each of these virtual copies. When I ask Lightroom to sort the images according to the notes, I don't have the virtual copies correctly sorted. They appear next to the originals and it seems that only the note of the original counts. Is it possible to ask lightroom to manage virtual copy notes independently of the original note? 

best regards,

When you create a virtual copy, it normally gets stacked with the original. Stacks sort as a whole, so if you want to sort the virtual copies separately, then you need to unstack them first.

Yes indeed, you are right. It works well with this. I just need to split the stack.  
Thanks :-)
