      Description

      The presentation tool shows slides from the Resources/Presentation/... folder, ordered alphabetically.

      However, when exporting a slideshow from Powerpoint (Office 2003) in PNG format, Powerpoint exports the slides as Slide1.PNG, Slide2.PNG, ..., Slide10.PNG, Slide11.PNG, etc. This set of PNG files can be easily dropped into a Resources/Presentation folder using drag&drop with WebDAV.

      However, the Presentation tool shows these as Slide1.PNG, Slide10.PNG, Slide11.PNG, which is the wrong order. A correct order (in this case) would be by creation date/time, but the Presentation tool does not allow selecting alternate orderings.

      The only workaround is to manually rename each SlideX.PNG file to Slide0X.PNG, which makes the end-user do more work.
