The Files > Recent Files currently appears to order the filenames in reverse chronological order of their being opened, i.e., the most recently opened one is in the first slot, and so on. This means that the user, to quickly find the file name they want, needs to either remember how recently it was opened compared to others, or scan down the list and read the filenames one by one, until reaching the desired one. It would be better to order this list alphabetically, to speed up the process of the user finding the desired file. Even better, would be to have an option in Edit > Preferences > File Opening that would allow the user to specify either alphabetical or chronological ordering of the filenames.
This would become even more important if and when a related feature is added to Komodo IDE – specifically, the ability to increase the number of recent files so it is no longer limited to just 15, since the more file names listed on the menu, the longer it takes to find them if they are not sorted alphabetically.
