    I can't reorder the shortcuts in my shortcut list. The docs say I can drag the icons to new orders, but that's not true in 4.01 or 4.02 in OSX.

    It would be nice to be able to set a custom order, with the most commonly-used ones at the top, but even if they were alphabetized, that would help.

    I found not a solution but a workaround for this problem. If I option-drag an icon, it creates a duplicate at the bottom of the list. By systematically option-dragging all the icons in the order I want, and then deleting the originals, I get them in a custom order. Still seems like the hard way...

    That's a clever workaround. It will be difficult for Fetch to support drag-reordering until the Apple data browser control (which Fetch uses to display shortcut lists) does.

    Thanks,

    The problem I have is that in the Shortcuts window, the Name field is selected so that it sorts by name. I can't figure out a way to have *none* of the columns selected so that I can do a custom sort. Can anyone help me?

    I sure hope Fetch gets a way to do custom Shortcut ordering soon. It's ridiculous that it can't.
