Help and Preferences menus give no clue about sorting individual names alphabetically. The application is Address Book 4.0.6

It looks the same. There is no "sort" command, as you have seen. I assumed that the unsorted last (or first) names would be automatically alphabetized upon closing the application, but that doesn't seem to work.
