Photoshop Elements: How do I move a place tag?

Greetings,

I have already tried asking this in the other forum.

I would like to sort my place tags into a geographical hierarchy (country > province > city). I have installed version 2018 and upgraded the version 15 catalog, but now have duplicate cities:




How can I move a place tag? When I try to drag it to another city, it doesn't allow me to drop it.

I have already changed all sorting options in Edit > Preferences > "Keyword Tags and Albums" to Manual.

I see someone asked a similar question for a previous version, but I was hoping this had been fixed for 2018.

Thanks,
Shane.

If you updated from PSE15 to PSE2018 (actually PSE16), then Places tags should be handled the same. I have uninstalled PSE2018 due to other problems so I can't tell you neither why this happened nor what to do.
Looking at the Place tag for Jasper, it seems that they point to the same location. Maybe PSE2018 uses slight different GPS lookup tables for geographical locations. 
As the two tags are located one above the other, the inconvenience is small.......

I have also tried Edit > Preferences > "Keyword Tags and Albums" > Alphabetical. The order changes, but the order is not alphabetical.

The Places Tag category is hardwired and thus you cannot change or edit it.

I can change it by clicking Edit > Preferences > "Keyword Tags and Albums" > Alphabetical, but the order is not alphabetical. If I click Manual it changes again, but the order appears random, and can't be customized.
