    Re-Ordering Collection Folders?

    Adareimages2 Level 1

      I have a number of folders in a collection set in LR 6, that I would like to re-order, beneath each other, in the order that I will use in a talk. I don't to rename the folders, but as they are now showing in alphabetical order, they are out of sequence for my talk.


      Can someone advise me if it's possible to re-arrange the order in which they sit beneath each other, without renaming them, or am I asking the impossible?


      Thanks for any advice.

          "without renaming....impossible?"- yes!

          Collections always sort  "Alpha/Numeric"


          Keep the names as they are, just insert a number sequence in front of the names (by renaming). They will then sort as you want, the numbers will not be too distracting. And also put (by drag&drop) the 'talk' collections in a Collection Set.

          Note: this is NOT renaming the folders where the originals are located. This is only renaming the Collections where they appear in the Collections Panel of Lightroom.
