doPDF is creating pages in the wrong order

I am trying to create a PDF from a series of JPEG images. They are correctly numbered, but doPDF keeps making the document with the images in the wrong order. I have renamed the files repeatedly but the PDF still shows them in the same, incorrect, order.

What application are you printing the images into PDF with? Or are you using the doPDF Getting Started window?

Thanks for getting back to me. I have been opening a folder of jpeg images > Select All > Right Click > Print > select doPDF as printer. However I now know what has been happening. Even though all the images in the folder are selected, the one I happen to be hovering over when I right click to select 'Print' becomes the first image in the .pdf, despite any numbering of the image files. Say there are six images, all selected. If I right click to print on Image No 3, for example, the .pdf will show them in the order 3,4,
5,6,1,2. Weird, and not like other applications, but now I know, it's okay. I presume this would be the position with any numbered group of items, documents, images or whatever.

Glad you figure it out. Unfortunately that order isn't controlled by doPDF, as it acts just as a physical printer would do, so it prints the way the application sending the printing request sends it.
