How do you organize the library in Flash Professional?

I am using Flash Professional CS6 I would like to take the movieclips, images, graphics and sounds and move them around in the library that I have set up in my .fla file. However, it seems that you cannot just drag and drop these assets. I can create folders and drag different things into them, but even within a folder you cannot change the order of the assets. Has anyone figured out how to move things around easily?

    Ordering within a folder in the library is done alphabetically.  If you want to control the order, control the naming.

    It only has basic columns (perhaps expanded later) but it is a standard grid. You can sort by any of the columns. Expand the width of the library if you didn't know these columns existed (I sort by date quite often) Name, AS Linkage, Use Count, Date Modified, Type:
