I've been using the Scrivener on Linux for a while, but the lack of ability to sort columns in Outliner mode bugged me, so I installed the Windows version using WINE. Surprisingly it installed without complaints! But sorting columns in Outliner mode still doesn't work. When searching on the internet for this topic I see references to it working -- so what's going on? Does it work in Scrivener 1.9.7 for Windows or not? Is something about running in WINE on Ubuntu make it not work? Or is there something wrong unique to my system?

It does not.

But my understanding is that column sorting will be a feature in Windows V3, although it doesn't work yet in the current Windows Beta.

Thanks. I'll look forward to v3 then.
