How numbers are "read" by Anki

Hi there, a question I hope you can help with as I am not very technical. On one of my decks, the heading of each card is a number, as I can then link the card back to the relevant section in my MA module; this also means that when I browse the deck, the cards appear in the order of the module. However, I am running into difficulties doing this, because Anki will e.g. see ‘12’ as ‘1-2’ and therefore will place it after ‘1’ but before, say, 5. Is there any way I can make it ‘see’ numbers that are larger than single digits? I have created my own work-arounds, but this is a bit cumbersome, and it would be great if it could just see multi-digit numbers as numbers!

Thank you.

You can pad the names with zeros: “01 Deck”, “02 Deck”, …, “15 Deck”, etc.

Thank you so much! Why didn’t I think of that? :face_with_raised_eyebrow::face_with_raised_eyebrow:
