Question: Can't manually order files in playlist in 12.7

The click and drag function seems to have disappeared from the latest version of iTunes so the only way to add files to a playlist is now to copy and paste.

However, this does not help if you want to manually order the files within the playlist. I cannot move files to change their play order by clicking and dragging - it just doesn't work!

Why does Apple keep messing up iTunes it drives me insane. Every update screws something else up.

Can anyone suggest a work around for this?

Thanks

Definitely doesn't work here. My ipod is not connected so it's not that. Definitely cannot click and drag anything anymore. I've tried viewing the playlist as songs and as a playlist but it doesn't make any difference.

12.7.4.76 - you used to be able to manually order playlists so I'm disappointed that option is no longer available. It appears that the only way to get tracks in the order I want is to copy and paste them individually in the required order. Ridiculously long winded.
