Is there any way to put them in alphabetical order?

Is there any way to put them in alphabetical order?

In the 'Home' menu, select 'Manage Zones'.
Your shortcut list should then be displayed, and to the right of the list there should be 2 buttons for sorting your list in either ascending or descending alphabetical order. Don't forget to then click on 'Save' below the shortcut list. :-))
If you later (e.g. next week or next month) create new zones when releasing, you'll need to repeat this procedure to keep your list sorted.

Thank you!

Does the alphabetical sorting work for you? Mine doesn't. The order does change, but not according to an alphabet I'm familiar with. :)

Some issues are language related, so I changed to English and tried it there, with similar results.

At least, if one does feel strongly about changing the order of the release zones, it is possible to drag them up and down one by one in 'Manage Zones'.

The sorting (in ascending order) works for me, the only 'anomalies' being that uppercase letters seem to take priority over the alphabetic sorting in my list (e.g. CVJM appears before Café) and zone names starting with non-English characters (e.g. Ö) appear at the end of my list. I can live with that, and the site support staff have more important things to do than to tweak this list. :-))

I did it manually as Stoepbrak suggested. I'm happy!

Well, this is what (the top of) my list looks like after I clicked on the button to sort it alphabetically. :)

Thanks for that, works for me and encouraged me to clean up my zones at the same time!

Although I'm offered and often use a short cut list when releasing books, clicking Manage Zones just shows an empty box!
Does that mean I have to set it up manually to start with?
And where is the list I use stored? It has to be somewhere, surely!

First - scroll down a bit. That first box "Crossing Zones" is (I think) for adding shortcuts manually; the box below that should contain your shortcut list.

If you still don't see your shortcuts, it may be one of those infamous site glitches, and the list should reappear soon.

Yes, that was the box I was looking at. Both boxes on that page are blank!

Have now looked 3 times since this thread appeared, Saturday, Sunday and now Monday, and it's still blank. I'm not bothered, I didn't know it was there, haven't used it, so I can hardly miss it .... Just curious!!!

OK, that's weird! If you can see the shortcuts when you're making release notes, you should be able to see them on the manage-zones page. I know that some site features require Javascript - perhaps that's one of them? Or perhaps try a different browser and see if that works.

Or not, if you don't feel the need to fiddle with your shortcut-list order {grin}.

Thanks for your suggestions! I'll maybe have another look at it another time .... :-)

Try the following link:

This should work only for you. (Each user has to replace the last bit with his/her own screen name.) If it is still blank, I suspect the explanation by GoryDetails that your browser requires a newer version of Javascript is correct.

That's where she can manage her release alerts, not the release zones shortcut list.

But if you mean that you want her to try this as a test for the version of Javascript she has installed, then that's probably a great idea.

Thanks, Moem. My error. I moved one too far down the droplist. :|

And those boxes are blank! Sorry!

I read and responded to your helpful posts in order - hence my three posts saying pretty much the same thing!

Yes, just as you pointed out, Moem, it showed my release alerts and confirmed that my release zones shortcut list is still just as blank as it was!

Yes, that showed me a list of the my Release Alert towns
Thank you :-)
But the Manage Zones boxes are still just as blank!

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
