Sorting option for project bins in Icon View.
Currently, when you switch a project bin view to thumbnails, the clips are arranged randomly without the ability to sort them.

My bin contents import in as last created first. You're telling me there is currently NO way to reverse sort in icon view?
When I switch to list view and click Name, of course I get the expected reverse sort.
Why is this not available in icon view??
Need ability to sort on just about everything available in list view, but in icon view.
Right now, Freeform Icon View is the only way to display these by criteria such as creation date- because you can re-arrange them BY HAND..
I'd rather be a postman- they get paid for sorting.
I do like the Align to Grid command from the popup menu when one or more icons is selected. But frankly, I'd rather not go scrolling to the bottom the popup for this. I'd like to see it in a button bar. Now I have to go looking for the keyboard shortcut.

At the same time, would be great to be able to manipulate the clips in space, the same way that you can in Media Composer. For every Avid editor I've ever known, having clips grouped by setup, as well as being able to make smaller clusters for group clips and their sources, is an essential part of the binning process. Premiere would really up its game for the professional community if it added this functionality. Final Cut Pro used to have this ability, as well (maybe still does, haven't used X).

This really, REALLY, needs fixing. Please let us view our clips in chronological/alphabetical order.
