sequential order of files listed in title drop down list that are numbered 10 or higher

if a list of source files are added that have the same name but, numbered 10 or higher the title drop down list is out of order. example: select a source folder or a selection of source files with 10 or more files with the same name numbered 10 or higher. they will be added to the title drop down list:
file 1.---> file 10.---> file 2. this will also add them to the queue out of numerical order, if a user is not aware or forgets of the flaw. the placement of the number in the file name does not correct the error. 1 file name or file name 1, produce the same error.

Why would you like to see this added: when deleting source files a user could delete a file that has not been encoded. file managers list files sequentially, if chosen by the user. when deleting a source file or files a user will delete them in numerical order. but, the queue is not numerically ordered. when a user looks at the completed jobs in a queue and sees the 2nd job is done, they will delete source file 2. but, the 2nd job in the queue is source file 10.

You're getting an alphanumeric sort - What you really need is, if there is more than 10 (or 100) titles, the file names be padded with leading zeros.
