File Manager - change Author name order

It looks like the mass rename option in the file manager will only insert author's names in order of first then last name. I need to rename last then first because my directory structures are based on the last names. Am I missing something, or is this really not an option at this time? If not, could it be added in a future update? I thought most systems organizing by name used the last then first system.

Alfa does almost everything I need, but it looks like I'm going to need to find an alternative program to manage the file names.

Hi, we'll try to add this option in the next update

I have a similar issue - though not exactly as described above.

I would like to be able to sort Authors in the Table list alphabetically - just because it is the way I like to see them, okay - pure aesthetics. But AeM doesn't offer that choice - so hopefully Mr/Ms Admin person above is taking note of this for the next update.

In the meantime, I guess I am going to have to add the author (Surname, Initial) into one of the Custom fields, as AeM will sort on the custom fields - but it is a lot of work I would rather not have to do.

Perhaps this might be an option for Mermosia to consider also?
