Re-arranging songs in a playlist

I've been seraching for a function to be able to re-arrange songs in a playlist. I've read posts which say you should be able to drag each song with the left mouse button but it doesn't work. It's extremely frustrating as I need to create playlists for exercise classes and need to keep changing around the song orders. Please help! I have a Premium membership but it feels like basic functions have not been thought about!

Now I see why 🙂

 

You're using the web player. To do what I told you, you must use the desktop app. It's not possible to drag songs in a web browser...

Hey @SuPM, thanks for writing!

 

You can arrange playlists by title, artist, album, date added and duration.

 

Also, if the playlist was created by you, you can arrange them simply by dragging songs around. It's not possible if you aren't the author of the playlist though.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions 🙂

Thanks @Bittencourt - I am trying to re-arrange playlists that I've created but seem unable to drag any songs around...maybe I'm doing something wrong?!

Maybe you've set them to be arranged by title, artist etc. In this case the playlist arragement will be "locked".

 

Make sure there's no green arrow besides any of these items' names. This will mean the playlist arrangement is "unlocked" and you should be able to arrange them the way you want.

As far as I can tell they aren't "locked" in any way. I've attached a screen shot of what I'm seeing as maybe I am missing something. I only have those 6 options (on the left hand side) for what I can do with the songs in the playlist
