in one of my playlists, i noticed the little down arrow at the top left is not there. and i cannot drag a song up or down to have it played in a different order. how do I get that arrow back in order to sort again? it is in my other playlists, and dont know why it disappeared. thanks

    Hide the artwork column.

    Not looking at a playlist folder are you? You can't set a track order in a folder other than by sorting on various fields. *Play order* is a property of both regular & smart playlists.

    Doh... I think I've missed the point here.

    You should be able to click in the little empty box where the arrow would be, i.e. the header of the left-most column. Provided you are looking at a playlist, not a source or playlist folder, and the artwork column is hidden, that should switch the sorting from whichever column it is currently on to the Play Order column. You should then be able to drag items up & down the play order.

    Maybe you could post a screenshot on imageshack or flickr.
