Torrent List Filter
With over 1000 torrents in a list, it can be cumbersome to sort by name in order to find a torrent with a given title in the main window (or if the keyword in question is not at the beginning, often impossible).
The main window should include an explorer- or finder- style list keyword filter, or a firefox- style find bar, or at the very least a find dialog box.

With simple wildcard (*) support. A text field for filtering, not searching, the torrent list (upper pane) with respect to the current view; also the files list (lower pane) of individual torrents would benefit from a filter.
There could either be a single filter box in the toolbar (this would act on whichever pane is active upper/lower) or individual filters for both panes.

A way for searching for torrents locally in utorrent is absolutely needed. Sort only works if the torrents are named exactly uniformly. Either a filter function or search function would be fine.
Azureus has this, but it's otherwise crap... would love to migrate to utorrent.
I currently have ~=475+ torrents in my list waiting for when a request for a dead torrent is asked for.
A word search or filter is definitely needed by seeders like us.
Duh... OK, now I read the "whole" request and must agree. Would be a nice function and should be easy to implement.
All you have to do is click the "Column Heading" and it will sort "Alphabetically". Click it again and it will "reverse" the alphabetizing.

You may want to transfer your votes to the other one.
This is much needed and should be a high priority. I find it annoying when you have 500 files and you just want one and you have to go on a wild goose chase searching for it. I guess for developers to implement this feature into future utorrent releases must be time consuming.
I second that. In fact, I think what we need is custom categories. That way, you can choose what to see.
