Hey there!

 

It seems that one of the organisation settings at the top of your playlist may have been selected. Check the top of your playlist and see of any of the column headings looks like the Artist one below.

If it does, click on it a couple of times, and it should go back to normal.

Ever since I downloaded the new update I am not able to rearrange songs in a playlist.  I have tried everything.

Hey :smileyhappy:

 

What do you mean rearrange? 

Playlists are only sortable by clicking the headings at the top to reorder the list. You can't manually set the order of a playlist when any of the headings are selected.

no not the playlist but the songs within the playlist.  I was always able to move around songs within my playlist and now i can not.

Have you sorted the playlist by clicking on one of the column headings? If the playlist is sorted that way, you can't manually rearrange. You have to unsort. I had that problem, unsorting fixed it.

 

See the earlier reply in this thread, it explains this, too.

Hey guys :smileyhappy: 

 

You need to see the post earlier in this topic. 

You can still reorder playlists providing none of the column headings are highlighted in a different color to the rest. You can deselect the column ordering by clicking on the heading until it is no longer selected.
