Sorting Items in the Browser Using Column Headings
Clicking column headings in the Browser allows you to sort items by any property
displayed in list view, such as Name, Reel, Label, Timecode, and so on. By default, items
are sorted by Name. In addition to the primary sorting property, secondary, tertiary,
and further sorting refinements can be made by Shift-clicking a column heading.
