I've also tried double clicking the playlist ( the named folder if you want to call it that). I then go into the playlist and wow it works! Once. I move one song and I'm ok. yay! Then I go to move another. Crash. Back to home screen.

It just sucks.

Please explain HOW TO unselect a column header. I clicked everywhere else and the arrow still appears on a column header. Where is the DESELCT?

Jamie,

I'm sorry but I do see these green triangles. Mine have arrows pointing down in them and I guess I always thought if them as just part of the avatar/image/call it what you will .

I also thought the arrow pointing down was a kind of confirmation that all of the playlist songs have been downloaded (by me).

So anyway, pleased that I found my green triangle, I tried it your way.(and yes, I never mess with "starred" playlist and I always start off my editing attempts by hitting edit. The shape and/or size of the text box with each song in it seems to shift a little, the = sign appears in the right side if the box (at least I think it's a =sign. It's been so long since I've edited anything that worked in a normal, predictable, non stress inducing way.)

Confusing series of ()...sorry.

So now I try hitting the green area before I hit edit. I hit edit then I hit the green triangle . On alternate weekdays when the female Robin lays her eggs....in other words, occasionally and without logic as to why, the songs will then go into their good old happy editing look and I think everything is gonna be fine.

No.

When I depress the text box, using the mark at the end of the right side, instead of moving up and down the playlist where I want it to go - and I've lowered my expectations so much that I try to move the song just ome or two songs up or down - the entire playlist gets that "select all" darkening or nothing happens excepts the entire Spotify system crashes.

What is the green triangle supposed to do? And am I right in assuming I just do what I always used to do with "sort" - ignore it.

There has to be a way to make this work. Otherwise, I'm just loading on songs without any control over the order I can listen to them in. That's just nuts - it smells like 1999.

Thanks,so much .

@Changshafu - Is it possible to get a screenshot of your Spotify?

Hi there,
I've attached two screenshots because I'm so eager to get this fixed! The other day I depressed the playlist image and then hit edit within the playlist or vice versa, and then moved an actual song 20 songs up from where it was! I was so happy!

Then of course the next time I tried I crashed.

I apologize for my ignorance about the green triangles - as I said earlier I see them enough to not see them. They mark every playlist as fully downloaded to off line, right?

Going to go check and see if any Spotify update or bug list has been posted,

Until then, you guys are all I got! Please let me know if attachments can be seen.

Thanks so.

@paydro44 - You can't reorder in the web player I'm afraid.

Suddenly , it works! Like magic. Nothing I did, so I guess the bug was fixed. Wish Spotify told/would tell me what the problem was, but it works now, I can move my songs around now and all is well.

Thank you all so much for all your help.
