Slide show resets
« on: April 10, 2007, 01:18:37 AM »
Hi,
the new feature in 4.5 to be able to rearrange the order of the photos (by drag and drop) in the slide show is greate.
But, when i quit, and restart Photo Mechanic my personal new order is gone.
Is there a way to save, so ill get the pictures in a map to follow the order I want in the slide show?

Thanks,
Melker

Is the contact sheet that you're working with just a single folder, or have you opened multiple folders into a single contact sheet?

It is supposed to maintain your arrangement.

When you come back to your contact sheet, try changing the sort popup menu to Arrangement.  Your reordering should come back.  If you always want it to be in Arrangement sort, then go into the Preferences dialog, click on the Contact Sheet tab and then change the default sort to Arrangement.

HTH,

-Kirk
