In Finder the “-” Minus character sorts above the “+” Plus character. In DevonThinkPro it’s the other way around.
You can verify this by sorting the name column and have the little triangle point upwards like a pyramid.
In Finder it sorts like this:
Untitled Folder -
Untitled Folder +
In DTP it sorts like this:
New Rich Text +
New Rich Text -
I don’t want to go into details, but this discrepancy has caused a big error in my work. I wonder why this difference in sorting exists to begin with. I wonder if other characters are affected as well. Isn’t everything supposed to be Unix Certified ? Is it a mistake by Apple or by DevonTechnologies ?
Even if Apple does it wrong, not obeying some ISO norm on character sorting (if that even exists - I do hope so), it would be at least great to have a harmonized working atmosphere.
