How to have folders ignore sort method?

How do I have the directories ignore the sorting method that I have on my lister? For example, even though my files are sorted by date modified, I would still like all of my directories to be at the top but always sorted alphabetically. If I remember correctly, the old windows explorer used to operate like that, and I guess I'm just used to it.

Thanks

I don't think you can have different sort methods for files and directories at the same time, sorry.

I know this isn't what you're asking but you could create multiple listers, or multiple folder tabs or have a dual pane set up in the same folder where one view shows folders only sorted as you want, while the other view shows only files sorted the way you want.
