there are 5 pages of IDEAS re: sorting... seems simple enough to have the capability to sort in various ways. I have voted, I have had others vote...I don’t have much faith in the V1 idea space. 
many items will be out there for a long time and have a LOT of votes and comments as to why & how it will benefit various companies/users and they are still there…and they should be easy fixes like the manual sorting of custom fields… but then other newer ideas that have much less votes are getting implemented.

this affects many categories too...
