Which collection mode allows drag-reordering?

I have 400 images in a Collection under a Collection Set heading and I was happily dragging them into the order I wanted - all originals are in the same folder. But then a message brielfy popped up on the screen that I could not read - something about how to reorder files, after which, I can no longer drag and reordered the files I had just been doing so with. Not sure if I hit some key errantly and switched modes of some sort - still looking at the Collection in the left column - but now I can't reordered the files. Which mode should allow this? Thanks for any info.

Once you're in the Collection reordering should always be possible. If it were the Collection set you'd have an issue. 

 

A restart is always the best first option when something is doing what you'd expect.

Thanks much. So here's a bug - if you are reoredering photos and you stop dragging while you are in the process of dragging... just stop randomly anywhere.. you get the error about what the proper way to drag is and you can no longer drag... And yes, then if you quit and restart, things work fine again.

I cannot replicate this failure.

Can you provide detailed, repeatable step-by-step instructions for reproducing this error?

It's really intermittent and I have to restart LR to ge the same functionaility I had before it throws up the error message. Finishing a project now and with an easy (enough) workaround, I need to defer pursuing this further at the moment. Thanks.

Maybe the 'bug' from v10.1 has returned, that limits moves to 52! (Likely in a Collection of 400 photos)
