    I am just getting started with iMovie, having just completed the Lynda.com training. My setup seems to create an extra layer in the library. It goes like this:

    iMovie Library


    Year/date (with a little calendar icon)


    Event (with a star icon)


    Project

    My question is, how do I get rid of the year/date? I don't really care to group my clips by date, I am more interested in grouping them by theme (or events).

    Thank you.

    That's the way iMovie display events, in date order. Pretty sure that you can't change it.

    Dave Braine is correct. The date is part of how the iMovie database works.

    well that's embarrassing. I have figured it out. Right-click on iMovie Library and select Sort Events By... Name.

    In all fairness it is a little confusing because if you go to the View menu you get the option to Sort By -> but this one only applies to clips within an event.
