FCP clips always out of order!

I'm sure other people have noticed that in Final Cut Pro, and after effects the clips are in alphabetical order,
which causing them to look like this: 10, 11, 1, 20, 21, 2, 30, 31, 3, 4, 5,

How can I make the order like this instead?: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

Why wouldn't you want your clips in order? Anyone know where to set this in final cut or after effects? -Who numbers their clips with the alphabet anyways?

Number your single digit clips 01, 02, 03.... 09, 10 ....
and you're set.

That's fine, but to late (for this project). If anyone knows a way to order your clips in the batch window, let me know. It's a logical question since MAC OSX can recognize "1, 2, 3..."

FCP Media management rules takes precedence inside the app itself so unless you're willing to rename the clips manually (or using third-party software like Adobe Bridge) then you're stuck.

You could organize the clips in your bin by media start, might not work for you, but when working with p2 or xdcan ex stuff I log it with the original clip name, make notes and then just organize the clips by media start (not in or out)
