Meta data is shown in columns, each column has a "header", the header describes what is shown in the column, eg: Song Name, Artist, Album etc. To *sort* by that colum, just click the column name, like this:
above: sort by Play List Item Index (PLI)
above: sort by Song Name
above: sort by Artist
To sort in reverse order, click it again.
Hiding and Showing
You may hide or show any of these columns, or re-arrange them to suit you. To hide a column, Context Click on the column header, and you'll see the name of that column listed first, with a check next to it, just pick that, and the column will disappear. For example, to hide the *PLI* column, Context Click it, then pick "PLI" at the top of the list, like so:
To Show a column, Context Click on any column header, then pick the name of the column you want to show. For example, to show the "User Sort Order (#)" column, Context Click *anywhere* in any column header, and pick "#" from the list, like so:
above: now you can sort by # (User Sort Order)
To re-arrange a column horizontally, pick it up and drag it.
To re-size a column, put the pointer on the borderline between two columns, and the pointer will change to a "resize" cursor, then drag.
