Organize and sort projects in Projects view
You can organize your projects by the year the photos were created. If you organize your projects in folders in the Library inspector, you can group your projects by the folders they reside in. You can sort projects by name, in ascending and descending order, and in the order in which the projects appear from top to bottom in the Library inspector. If you have a large number of projects in your library, you can search for a specific project, removing the others from view.
If you have more than one project documenting the same subject and you want to consolidate the projects into a single project, you can merge the projects.
