Is it possible to offer better control to the ability to reorder sets? I am only able to move a chosen set down, not up; and when moved, it slides down to some random spot in the list. I cannot alphabetize my sets which is driving me crazy.

You mean Collections I think? You can edit your Collections on different pages and it works better on some than on others, so try it from both the Your books tab and the edit book page.

1, It works best from the profile page. You have to have that section of Collections enabled to see it on your profile page. If you can't find that, write back.

I think you mean Home page, not profile page.

Yes, I do. Sorry about dat.

I am speaking of the pop-up box labeled Collection Manager (Javascript based list of Collections). I get to it by mousing over the collections list on my home page. It is the same box where one adds a new collection.

I am not trying to add collections or books to a particular collection; I am simply asking about better control of moving collections to a certain order.

Hopefully that clears up my request/suggestion.

Hmm. I have certainly experienced the stubbornness of movement you are talking about, but it doesn't happen to me when I access collections from the Home page. Maybe it will work better for you from a different page. You must have tried accessing from your catalog. Have you tried from the Add Books page?

Thanks Collectorator, I never thought to try it on the Add Books page. It works fine from that page. Thanks again.

Yeah, Collections can be stubborn. For me it works well in Your Books, ok on Add Books and on a book page and poorly on the Home page. It's just weird.
