I'm annoyed that when I arrange a folder "by Kind" while in Icon View, each section is a single line with a cover flow collapsing all the icons that don't fit in the line.
(I very rarely use icon view, but the folder in question contains a mix of images, GIMP files the images were generated from, and a great many subfolders; I'd like to be able to quickly look at the icons for my png images.)
Is there any way I can get a grid view of the files sorted by kind, or better yet by type (e.g. separate .png and .xcf files.)?
(The results from finding *.png are perfect layout (not shown), but mix in images from folders, which does not serve my purposes.)
Arrange By: None
Good: Grid arrangement. Bad: files and folders mixed.
Arrange By: Kind
Good: Files and folders separated. Bad: most icons hidden in cover flow scroll area.
This question has been asked before on other versions of OS X, but the solutions given there (arrange by none and then clean up by kind) don't work for me, as "Clean up by" is grayed out on the top menu and completely absent from the context menu.
As per the accepted answer below, the solution was: 1. Arrange By: None 2. Pull up the options with Command-J or Control-click on the window 3. Sort By Kind
