Hi guys! I always moved the photos inside an album by clicking on top and dragging, to change the order of some. After the last update of the Lightroom Classic I can no longer, the message appears: "Cannot reorder photos. The currently selected source does not support custom order". Do you know what I do to get the photos moving? Thank you!

To reorder photos, you have to be in a regular collection or a folder with no subfolders - you can't be in a collection set, a smart collection, or a folder that has subfolders.

Hey Aline - Are you working in one of the special collections under the 
Catalog section, by any chance?  Setting a custom order isn't possible in most of those.  I think Quick Collection is the only exception.

Please check if all the photos in your collection are residing in the same folder.
Otherwise, this error message is thrown.

Thanks,
