First, I like almost everything about the new Lightroom CC.

At the moment it appears you can only sort by Capture Date, Import Date, Modified Date, or Star Rating. Capture Date works for me most of the time. But sometimes I like to order photos in an album by file number or name. Could you add this option please.

Great idea, Keith! Thanks for your input! 

You might want to make a separate post for the A to Z preference to make it easier for others to vote for it.

Cheers!

Thanks for your vote, Rick. I'll separate the A to Z preference as you suggest.

Rick, technical question on posting. Tried editing out the A to Z preference here, but couldn't see how to do so. Is there a way?

No worries. I took care of it. All you have to do is make a new post.

I also would like to see the filename sorting option and the option Custom sort and create my own preferred order. Both are available in the Mobile app (interesting..) Sorting by filename only works nicely if I could change filenames. Unfortunately that is not possible.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled is it possible that in the future lightroom cc can sort by filename?.

I'm seeing a 'custom order' option in the sort menu after update 1.3. It wasn't listed in the changelog so I'm wondering if it has broken cover prematurely. Anyway, I can't see how it works. Can anyone shed any light?

Custom order should only appear for albums that have a custom order set in LR Classic or on mobile. There isn't a facility to arrange photos into a custom order in CC desktop yet.

This, and also the custom order never worked as expected :( Sorting should be fixed!
