Re: How can I sort my collection by weight?
Go to your collection page. Just above the dark blue bar at the top portion of the page on the right side, you see "Download board games: (all | owned)".

Click the "owned" link to download your collection. You'll quickly get a geekmail with yet another link to open an Excel file. When I did this just now, the weight was appropriately all the way in column "W" of the spreadsheet.

Re: How can I sort my collection by weight?
It seems like my collection actually "landed" in this spreadsheet.
Haven't a clue about how to organize this further, but I have something to start with.

Thanks for this tip!

Re: How can I sort my collection by weight?
Stuck again: it seems all info landed in column A, divided by comma's.
By simple counting I confirmed weight should have ended up in column W indeed, but it didn't. Anybody recognize this problem?

Make sure that when you open the program, you use the Import menu instead of just Open, and select the Comma Delimited file type.

Appreciate the help, but I'm too unfamiliar with Excel to understand any of this. I'll ask for help in my neighbourhood...

Thanks again

There is a tool available to create a PDF of your collection and it can be customized to sort as you desire. I keep Rank, Rating and Weight for my games. http://www.bgg2pdf.com/#/

He will sort your games for you by weight . . . among many other ways to sort.
