How can I change the order of gallery images?

Now when I add new image, it appears at the end of my gallery order. How can I put recently added images first?

Did you get this issue resolved? I'm have the same problem!

The only way I found is to maximum zoom out page view – then you can drag items.

Is there something I am missing here? I am unable to drag images around in my gallery to modify the order. The images are all locked in place. Is this working as intended or is it a bug?

Sorry for my unfamiliarity. Just signed up for the trial and this is one of the few basic things that I have tried so far. Can't say I'm as impressed as I was after watching the promotional video which made all of this look stunningly easy.

I would also like to set the sort order on a gallery. If that is not feasible then please set the order so that newest is on top.

You can drag and drop images to change the order.

foleyatwork, I know I can, but:

  1. when there is more than 50 images – most of them becomes undraggable.
  2. when I add 1 image it's ok to drag it to the top, but when there is 10 images...

I think recently added items must be at the top.

Here's video, so u guys don't think I don't know what drag&drop is –

Didn't mean to suggest you were unaware of how to use basic features, but I couldn't get that detail from the question. The more information you put in your question, the better response the community can give.

I think the best route here is to submit a support ticket. It seems like a bug and support can report that to the engineering team.

Thats a joke, right? :-( Just started the trial and realized that galleries doesn't support a basic sort order setting?!?
