Reordering custom playlists in Media Library
« on: November 23, 2021, 10:51:13 PM »
This is a minor thing, but in Media Library under Playlists, when you create custom playlists they are placed in the list one after another in the order you created them and there is currently (as best as I can tell) no way to change the order. It would be great if it were possible to reorder them by dragging and dropping them.

I'm able to change the sort order of the playlist view by clicking on the column headings. Drag and drop would probably conflict with this current way of sorting.

If there would be conflict, personally, I'd prefer the drag and drop option over sorting by heading, but (at least in concept) there needn't necessarily be conflict - drag and drop reordering could be a separate, custom order, that would get changed if you clicked on a heading (same as if you go from sorting by heading 1 to sorting by heading 2).

Now, that's in concept, I don't know how easy or difficult that would be to actually execute in code.

It is possible to change the order by clicking on the root view headers but specific re-ordering is something I'd need to look into as currently drag+drop is setup to interact with the existing playlists instead of allowing for moving.
