I need to sort classifiers by type in a Package (e.g. first all Actors; then all Classes; then all Components; then all Use Cases; etc. etc.) in Model Explorer and in Generic tables. Can't find a way to do it! Please let me know if any suggestions thank you!

You need to make a new customization file for the model explorer, in this file you link a request in which you look for all packaged elements but you store in the list by alphabetic order.
This customization is quite complex to do.
you can see example in all *.custom files in all plugins of the modelexplorer

Hello Richard,
in (Generic) Table, you can't yet sort elements by Metaclass. You can only use these sorts :
- sorting the rows by alphabetic order(Right-Click on the body of the table>Rows->Sort Rows (A->Z)).
- sorting the rows by feature values (Alt-Left-Click on the column header) and Shift-Alt-Left-Click on the column header to sort with several columns.

Thank you very much Patrick and Lorenzo. I think sorting by type (metaclass) would be a useful feature, I'll submit an enhancement suggestion in Bugzilla...
