    Hi Shapies,

    I want to arrange my models one by one in an exact order according to my taste...

    Is that possible? How can I do it?

    For example like in the picture:

    At the top of the page it says: Shapeways SHOP DESIGN SELL

    Click on SELL

    Top left Tab is Shop Inventory - click on this and do your best....

    I tried that, it does not work for me.

    Well, I've complained a lot about this, and all I can say is that it is better than it was.

    Pick SELL at top of page then click 'Shop Inventory'
    Change the display order by altering the numbers in the boxes.

    It works.

    Click on the box next to display order and enter an order number for every item.

    It takes a while for the page to arrange the items and if you want to see what you want, you have to enter an order numer for all items!

    For all items? That sounds like joke from developers :) Imagine someone with 1000s items in shop

    I did it months ago so time is not issue here.

    Just to show you difference...

    This is how i arrange it:

    So much for that!
    I don't personally use it; I just knew where it was.
    If it doesn't work, what's the point of it?

    The tool seems to get confused when position numbers somehow end up being skipped or duplicated (as can happen with for sale and not for sale items). At least that's something I might have noticed. I could see the sorting algorithm being complicated by the various model properties (public, private, for sale, downloadable, etc.) and other things like delays in the database being updated during a hot and heavy sorting exercise. And of course I could be 100% wrong.
