I know this is basic but I can't seem to find an answer with a web search. Is there a way to sort the items in a bin alphabetically? By default they sort by the order I imported them or moved them into a folder.
Click on the 'Name' column in the bin to sort alphabetically.
You can sort bins using any of the columns
by clicking the column header.
Customize List view columns / Sort by a column
This works but in list view but I'm working in thumbnail view. When I sort them in name view and then click thumbnail view they become unsorted again. Is there any way to sort in thumbnail view?
