Rearrange or sequencing images in (new) Lightroom CC albums

One of my greatest uses of Lightroom Classic is using it to sequence publications by arranging images within a collection.  Its done easily by left clicking on the image and dragging it elsewhere in the collection to create a sequence by simply rearranging the images.  However, after downloading Lightroom CC, I seem unable to do this inside of albums.  It seems the only way to rearrange the images is by allowing Lightroom to sort them by some type of specific data (file number, capture date, rating, etc).  Is there something I am missing or some simple command I can't find that allows me to rearrange the images by simply dragging them inside the album?

LRCC doesn't yet allow rearranging images into a Custom Order. However, it WILL support any custom order you set either in Classic or LRCC for Web.

Thanks Jim.  I can't understand why such a simple task would be left out of the software.

In fairness to Adobe, it would have been impractical to put all the LR Classic features into the first version of a brand new app, so they've done what they felt was more important initially. Not everybody will agree, so they hope that users will request and vote on their favourite missing features at the official Adobe feedback site: Lightroom CC | Photoshop Family Customer Community

I expect that custom sort order has already been requested, so why not head over there and add your vote?

I really don't have anything positive or constructive to say.  I suppose I'll just continue to use Lightroom Classic until I find out they have upgraded CC to the added functionality I am looking for.  Disappointing.

Ditto!  What a shame.  Such a simple and useful feature done away with.  Why?  I have found if you go here http://lightroom.adobe.com  you can arrange them on the web.?.?  Strange.  Back to Classic for me.

It is really disappointing that a re-ordering function is not available in the most current version of Lightbox. This was the one function I saw as a key advantage to this software over others, as I can access the Photoshop functions already. Unfortunately, my subscription is only for CC, so I'm out of luck accessing the earlier, more functional version.

You can do it at Photo Editor | Online Photoshop Lightroom or on an Apple Mobile device though (unsure about Android)

You can rearrange photos in albums however you want. Its not intuitive, but it works. Select the image you want first, then in menu click -> Photo -> Edit date and time. Order your images by ascending date in the same month/year. Then you get the custom sort order you are after. If you have it connected to Portfolio, remember to refresh from lightroom to update sort order.
