Sort Order for 'All Books'

Hi,
I'm new here and I'm german, so excuse my english. I miss in 'All Books' -> 'Sort' the possibility to select 'Author'. This Item does not exist and this is very bad for me ( and maybe others) cause I have managed my ebooks in that way : 'Title - Author.epub'. That means that i get a chaotic Sort Order by selecting p.e. 'Title'. Clicking on 'Author' in the mask of 'All Books' kicks me out of 'All Books' into the view of one single Author. It would be very nice if you can build in a sort order ' Author' for 'All Books'
Thanks a lot
Michael

Michael,
The problem is that one book may have several authors, that's why we removed sorting from this field
But using the Library Explorer sidebar you can get authors list sorted by alphabet and by clicking on author, you'll see his books

Thank you for your fast answer, I understand - but sorting by author would mean, that one book is a few times in the list All Books if it has a few authors. I think this is a more Little Problem, than not to be able sorting that list in a sinful way. Maybe you can think about it, cause i think that many People organized their files in a way your sortorder is not good for. I wish it would be possible to scroll fast through All Books - Authors.
Anyway - again thanks for your answer.
Michael

Michael, we'll probably add sort by author in the next version
