Lightroom: Why can't I sort by image size and dimensions

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Why can't I sort by image size and dimension like Bridge does...or hav....The long and short of it is in the question, however, the suggestion at the bottom here is to get emotional and asks how it makes me feel. Well then. I've invested an awful lot of time consolidating the best part of 2TB worth of images originally scattered all over the place from different drives. Lightroom is good for that. However, so many are duplicated and are in different sizes. Easy then. Just sort by size, then get rid of the small duplicates...Just like I can do in Bridge. Only I must be missing something. I see no option to do so. At this stage my blood is starting to boil. Are those good people at Adobe so short sighted as to have left this option out? WHY?!!!!

Note: This conversation was created from a reply on: Lightroom: Search or Filter by Pixel Dimensions, Long Edge Dimension & Aspect Rat....

I see that this comment was merged with another conversation, so might not make much sense now. I've found a workaround though for finding duplicates. This Lightroom plugin has saved the day:

Oh how I feel your pain David Swift.
I question my sanity as surely the biggest photography software company in the world could not possibly have 'forgotten' to add the feature to sort by file size to their program. Surely. Really?
