Re-Ordering Clips In Dvd-Video

Yes, that's what I do.

 

Highlight it (blue background) BUT when I drag it, it does not move that simply - it moves quite a few rows down.

Meaning that the move does NOT take place right there by the highlighted clip but further down (about 7 clips down) - which also means I cannot move any clip to the very top of the list.

 

You can imagine how hard it is to deal with any kind of order - like some strange puzzle... (how do end up with clips on top that I want, instead of just affecting the clips below).

 

I simulated that look with the black line that does appear where the clip will be moved to (the shortest distance, down [only]). Forget about being able to move that clip upward... From that middle row, one can only go down.

 

Thank you.

FYI Retina MBPro - I would not be surprised that this may be the culprit, but it is just a guess...

It's working fine for me in either direction. I suggest quitting Toast and trashing the Toast plist and prefs files in your User>Library>Preferences folder. Then relaunch Toast to see if that fixes the issue. To access your user library hold down the option key while selecting the Go menu in the Finder.

I trashed "Roxio Toast Prefs" & "com.roxio.Toast.plist" but did not trash all of them AND I still have the same problem.

Maybe those other plists (in the picture) should have gone out to.

 

Too much of a hassle right now (as I said, time is tight).

 

 

I am adding also a picture of my registration saying that I had no address when I did input one - another one of those quirks (after trashing my plists).

 

 

Thank you anyway, tsantee.

Addendum: first name, last name and e-mail address WERE input into that registration window.

I'm bewildered by why this isn't working the same for you. By the way, when I reach the registration screen when relaunching Toast after trashing the preferences, I just skip that part because I know I'm already registered. I'm not certain about those other preferences that have Toast in the name. I've never trashed them in the past, mostly because I never saw them in the past. The four that don't have Toast in the name shouldn't matter. You could drag them from the Preferences folder to see if that helps, but I think you'll just end up dragging them back in.

 

I'm sorry that I don't know what else to suggest. You are supposed to be able to change the order of titles by dragging them to different places of your choosing.

Thank you. Yes, dragging up or down the clips should be a simple operation...

Thank you for your support. I wish we had resolved this. I am now going to tackle the DVDStudio Pro, the large beast (I was avoiding it for now).

Let's see what challenges that await there.

Best wishes.

There a 3 toast preference files which should be removed from the User/Library/Preference folder to completely reset toast.

-com.roxio.Toast.plist

-com.roxio.Toast.LSSharedFileList.plist

-Roxio Toast Prefs

 

Often there may be a backup toast preferences located in the ~/library/preference folder. You should only need to remove the user/library/ toast preference.

 

As for the dragging the file position. Instead of highlighting the file prior to dragging it. Simply click the pointer into any empty white space of the file (just behind the track name) and drag up or down until you see the black line appear. The black line marks the position of where the file will be relocated. Repositioning files appears to be working for me as well.
