Sort file/folder list when folder cruising or at the very least sort by alphabetical order as default

Folder cruising is a very handy feature that I never use because there is no methodology to the list of files and folders in the current folder dropdown.  At the very least, the list in folder cruising dropdowns should be sorted in alphabetical order and at best, customizable sorting like in the main folder view, even if the sort type can only be chosen in preferences.

  • Like I have to search a random list of files and folders each time I use folder cruising

This drives me mad! It would be so much more useful if it was in alphabetical order. I’m often cruising folders with dozens of sub folders and it really gets in the way that the list is in random order. Typing the first few letters of the target will find the folder, but that gets tiresome.

Seems like it would be an easy fix for Adobe, but it's been like this for years.

It's still odd I can't see even that fucntion, 'Folder Cruising'. Maybe it's only for MacOS?

btw is this topic related to your problem?:

Perhaps related, hard to tell. Here's a screenshot of the dropdown menu with random ordered folders

They are listed alphabetically for me for every folder beside those in 'User / my name' on Windows. For some reason they have some random order. If I extend a path of some folder in that mentioned then order is again alphabetical. Maybe it's MacOS problem?

Thanks for testing it. At least we know it's not a problem on Windows. But I wouldn't characterise it as a macOS problem, it's more like an Adobe Bridge for macOS problem. There are no issues with file or folder ordering on macOS.
