Recently I imported a table with main topics that started with a mix of real numbers and numbers as text, for example, 1, 1a, 1b, 2, 3, 3a, 3b, etc. As a result the topics were imported out of sequence, for example 11 came before 1a and so on. I thought I would fix this by adding a leading zero to all numbers under 10 so I had 01, 01a, 01b etc, and then sorting the map. When I tried to sort however MM crashed comprehensively, and did so every tine I repeated this.

I implemented a work around which was to sort the topics and concatenate the numbers with the actual text so that the numbers were all converted to text before I imported (which preserved the correct sort order) but I was curious whether anyone else has experienced this.
