default track playing order based on tag field "track"

I really like using Vox, but I have one major problem. Due to many reasons, names of my music files are always "artist - title". I have always correct order of songs in the album stored in "track" field of tags. Can I force the program to set an order based on this "track" field"? They always play in alphabetical order only.

    Hi Maken,
    Thanks for using our app!
    VOX uses tags: "Title" ; "Artist"; "Album"; "Track Number"...
    In your case tag "Track" (btw how did you add it? Not every tag editor allows to set such tag) should be "Track Number".

    Actually it is "track number" - field which is used by e.g. Kid3. So all my albums folders contain proper numbering of songs in this tag field, but not in the files' names. And I cannot force VOX to sort it based on this tag field. Any advice?
