+\item[Interpret numbers when sorting:]
+ \setting{As whole numbers} enables a sorting algorithm which is similar to
+ the default sorting of, for example, Windows Explorer, Mac OS X's Finder
+ or Nautilus, with regards to numbers at the beginning or within file names.
+ It combines consecutive digits to numbers and uses this numbers for sorting.
+ \newline\setting{As whole numbers} disables this algorithm, and causes every digit to
+ be compared separately.
