Adding genre

Postby kullboys » Mon Apr 08, 2019 2:25 am


I'm in the line mode view and when I choose a few lines to edit and I add a new genre it always put at the end and when I drag it at the front of the older one and press ok the new genre is always at the end. Is there's a way to put at the beginning because I got several hundred of book genre editing and I don't want to edit one by one.

For the multiple edit there are so many possible combinations that cause edge cases that the additions have to go at the end of the line. The multiple edit only shows that which the entries have in common, there could be extra genres not shared and then the re-ordering would break.

If you know that all the entries share the same generes and want to move their location then the way to do it is to remove the genres first and then add them back. Select the entire genre, use cut, then press OK. Open the multiple edit again and paste the genre and hit OK.

This way the replace and the ordering will be updated as it's done explicitly.
