Hidden in the Project panel is a wealth of sort options for all the elements in the Project panel or a bin. Here’s how to access them.

  • Open the Project panel.
  • Switch to thumbnail view.
  • To the right of the slider that determines thumbnail size, is an icon of three stacked lines with a down arrow. Click it.

From this menu, you can sort thumbnails on over 30 criteria.


For you list junkies, the default sort is alphabetically on file name. However:

  • To sort on any column, click the column header.
  • To sort in reverse order, click the column header again.
