Hi Nick
I've noticed that playlists are sorted (in DC3) in such a way that names that begin with a lowercase are displayed after names beginning with an uppercase.
Example:
Poliça_2
Poliça_3
poliça_1
This is not the case in iTunes itself and should be, in DC3, (imho):
poliça_1
Poliça_2
Poliça_3

Hi

The way the list is sorted depends on the column selected in the Import dialog of Disc Cover. Sometimes, you need to import with activated AppleScript in preferences.

Hi Nick
I'm talking about the list of playlists not about the list of tracks.
Here's a clearer example:
From iTunes (note that some playlists begin with a lowercase: poliça, ray of lights, siouxsie…)

From DC3 (note that these lists are displayed at the end of the list of playlists)
Image
Sorting seems to use ASCII codes (A != a) not a more "clever" sorting algorithm (A = a).
Enabling AppleScript doesn't change this behavior (10.6.x and 10.7.x).
Of course:
This doesn't crash DC3! ;^)
I can easily rename these lists in iTunes (but I don't necessary want to do this!)

Thanks for explaining. I'll pass these details to the developers.
