Enable sorting in the main pane by ANY field
The sorting functionality is restricted to
However, citations include many more fields that could (and in my opinion should) be used to allow sorting. I want to be able to right click on the field bar and choose which fields I want to populate and select which field I want to sort by by toggling the column header (similar to Windows Explorer).
Any fields that are accessible to Mendeley should be able to be a sort term.

There's a more general suggestion that include also this suggestion...
It is this: http://feedback.mendeley.com/forums/4941-general/suggestions/397065-allow-users-to-choose-column-headings-in-my-librar
I advise who has voted this suggestion (in this page) to move his/her votes to the one I have reported, so we don't waste the votes... ;-)

Totally agree. For example, I'd like to sort by document type, and copy all "books" to a "Books" folder. This task right now is practically impossible to do, because I'd need to do it manually for 3000 entries.
