would like to be able to sort by title, as I can't change the file name in Photosmith, so have to redo all the file names after import to LR, so I can sort on name....PLEASE?? I do love the keeping of original file name though!!

I've been wanting this for years as you have.  It is ludicrous not to sort by title.  Every catalogue system in the world, apart from photographic ones apparently, sort by title.  In a database sense, it is inefficient and wasteful to provide a field that cannot be sorted, let alone one as significant as "Title".  I understand that people may wish to title a collection of photos as say "My summer holidays" then caption each photo with something like "Me eating an ice-cream" etc..  However, Lightroom already does a wonderful job of providing extensive folder and keyword hierarchies as do photo hosting sites that to use the "Title" fiend for this purpose is wasteful.  Nevertheless, allowing sorting by Title does not prevent anyone doing what they are already doing.  It does however allow a huge improvement Lightroom's versatility.
