  • Custom Sorting question

    I have to modify the sorting order of some files from a large folder. I tried to do it by drag-and-dropping (as the Help says) but it takes a lot of time for the (lengthy) list of files to scroll till I reach the desired place. I tried to Paste them near a selected file - doesn't work.
    Any way of doing this more speedily?

    If you want a truly custom sequence (not in any sortable order), then Drag & Drop is your best option. However, you don't necessarily have to drag thumbnails. While in Manage Mode, you can press F9, or F10, or F11, or F12, and get different views of your images. I use F11 most of the time for custom drag & drops. I can see hundreds of images on one screen and move them around very efficiently. F9 is also useful. Check out these viewing options and see if one of them will help with your custom sequencing. /Bill

    p.s. When I create a custom sequence that I want to keep, I always rename the images so as to "lock in" the special sort sequence, permanently.
