Sorting in-text citations

I am really sorry if these matters were discussed on this forum, but I couldn't find it...
  1. Is it possible to add a sortkey for in-text citations according to the publication year? E.g. if I have citation like this (Author1 1950; Author2 1980; Author3 2010) and then I want to add Author4 2000, system will automatically add this entry at the end of citation, and not before Author3 2010?
  2. Is it possible to create bibliography like this:
    Author 1
    2000 <tab> title
    2005 <tab> title
    Author 2
    1980 <tab> title
    1982 <tab> title
    and so on?

No. See the FAQ.

Not out of the box. It would require some serious XSLT manipulation. I have been thinking about adding headers in a future version, but I'm lacking time. Note that using a tab would never be a good idea as bibliographies are build as HTML which does not understand the concept of tab. A table layout would be better there.

Alas, changing citation (edit field) does not work with Word 2013…

It does. But realize that if you have hyperlinking turned on (that is, clicking on an in-text citation brings you to a bibliography entry), the default context menu might be overridden if you don't right-click in the exact correct place.

Yeah, I've found my problem - you can't change citation if it's in a footnote. You must copy it to the main text, change, and then copy again....
By the way - when I insert citation I can choose from the already cited items, clicking "insert citation" button. But everything on this list is sorted according to the first name of the author, what is very irritating. I solved it typing last name as the first name... But, maybe, I can change something in Word's settings?
