Filter/Sort combinations

I've finally got most of my books into the correct collections, so now I want to see which books aren't in a collection yet. My ideal view, which I used to have on the KK, would show me a list of all my collections, and then any 'orphaned' books that aren't in a collection yet.

From what I've gathered, to get this view I need to have the filter set to All Items, and then sort by Collections. I have two queries about this:

1) is that right?
2) no matter what combination of 'cloud/on device' and 'all items/books/collections/documents' I select, the order by dropdown always has collections greyed out. Now I know this used to work a few days ago; any idea why the option isn't available now? It's not still busy indexing, if that helps...

I have the same problem with my new basic kindle. It has finished indexing, but there is still no way to see which books are not in any collection.

Never mind, I figured it out. The collections have to be starred, you have to long-press on a collection and choose "show in all views". Then choose On Device -> All Items and now sorting by collections is no longer greyed out. And you can see all your orphaned books listed after collections.
