Hey folks, I'm having an issue with K7 on a MacPro running 12.6.6. I keep my libraries in the Libraries tab in order, sorted by type of library (strings, winds, etc.). For the last couple of months, things have been pretty scrambled, and it doesn't seem to hold onto the order I put them in, if I drag them around they're back out of order the next time I load Kontakt. Not a huge problem, but it'd be great to be able to have it back the way it was. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

    Yeah, I was resisting the AZ button because I was worried that it was going to scrap everything and I'd have to start over with reorganizing everything. I just bit the bullet and tried it though, and it now seems to be retaining the order I'm putting them in, so that's good news. It's still a little scrambled, but it's way better than starting from scratch. Thanks for your help!

    Hello,

    Above your libraries there is a "A-Z" button

    If it is enabled (clicked), libraries are cataloguing alphabetically. If you disable this (by click) they appear according to your order (or randomly, i'm not quiet sure on this).

    "retaining the order I'm putting them in"

    How?

    For example, I got two Kontakt Factory Selections separated by couples of Play Series instrument. Ideally, I want to put my libraries by manufacturer plus more. There's no drag-and-drop for me to re-sequence the vertical order of the libraries? How do I do that? My list is a mess and it will only grow! A-Z doesn't help.
