Is it possible?
Find it very annoying at the moment having to choose one or the other.
In Finder, no. Try Path Finder.
Yes it is definitely possible. Right click on a Finder window and click on "Show View Options". Then you will be given the chance to Arrange by Kind and Sort by Name. See attached.
That's new for Lion. Users of Snow Leopard and earlier don't have that option. It's good to see they added that!
This is how I do it, too. It looks really nice and organized in list view. The only problem is you have to constantly set it. Even if you, "Use Defaults," (which half the time is greyed-out anyway). I really wish you could set a global default view so that Finder always used the same view everywhere without exception.
By my count you need to set it ~8 times. Once you set it for each of the main folders it will stay consistent in the subdirectories within those folders. So set it once for Desktop, Apps, Docs, Movies, Music, Pictures, Downloads, and whatever is under your devices and you should be good.
YES!!!!! Thanks!! Feel so happy.
That's exactly what I needed. Been bugging me for the past 7 weeks (since getting my first Mac).
So annoying when there tons of stuff and its' in a giant mess.
Oh and immediately looked for shortcut - it's Command + J for Show View Options (I love shortcuts).
