I would like to be able to sort the library in list view by 'Tags' as well as all the other currently sortable column headers. Currently if the 'Tags' column header is clicked on, the 'Sort ascending' or 'Sort descending' icon appears above column title but the column does not actually sort.

Agreed. However, items with multiple tags simply list them alphabetically at the end of the row. This means that for items with multiple tags, you will always be sorting by the tag that comes first, alphabetically. Is that what you want?

David - here's a quick sample of my library' tags. Note the highlighted tag, "Site Management" can be in the first, second, or third position, depending on what other tags are added:

I see your point. I have never had occasion to use multiple tags for what I use Snagit for.

I wonder though if it would be possible to have multiple tag columns such as 'Tag1, Tag2, Tag3, etc. It might then be possible to do a 'Custom' sort, as is possible in Excel, since this is, I believe, just a display of a database table with links. In your example, I would always start with 'Site Management' and apply some sort of hierarchy when adding multiple tags.
