I use an iTunes playlist in GarageBand's Media Browser to fill a mix with tracks. I'd like them to have the same sorting order.

They usually do, and the Media Browser correctly reflects my reordering of tracks in the iTunes playlist.

 

BUT.

When I accidentally hit a column header in the Media Browser, that column will sort A>Z, or Z>A. I don't know how to undo this, how to 'unsort' and thus have the order mirror the order in the iTunes playlist again.

Anyone?

 

Thanks in advance.

    I found no way to undo the sorting inside GarageBand. The sort order for the Media Browser is stored in the GarageBand Preferences file. Quitting GarageBand, logging off and on again, and then deleting the GarageBand Preferences from the User Library resets the Media Browser to the custom sort of the playlist - but that method is rather drastic and cannot really be recommended

     

    To delete the preferences remove

    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.garageband.plist

    from your user library.

     

     

    As you probably know, the User Library is hidden since Mac OS X Lion.

    You can reveal it from the Finder's "Go" menu in the main menu bar:

     

    Finder > Go

    Then hold down to options-key ⌥, until Library appears in the drop-down menu. Select it and open the Library.

    Thanks Leonie. That surely will do the trick, although it is indeed too drastic. Thanks again.

    What a load of rubbish!
