I'm not a frequent Mac user and I have this battle every time that I try to do this on Mac.  On PC, I can Alt + drag to prioritize a single book from a series.  What is the equivalent key to do this on Mac?  I'm sure I've figured it out in the past, but this time I've tried every key combination imaginable and searched the forums with no success.  Please help save my sanity.

One way to accomplish this is to "right click" on a resource and choose "prioritize this resource". This will put it at the bottom of your list, so you'll need to drag it to the position you'd like.

Hi Reuben,

Thanks. I'm familiar with that method (and that's what I finally resorted to for the resource I was trying to prioritize at the moment)...BUT, my prioritization list is substantial, so dragging it 2/3 of the way up the list takes 2 minutes. Sad

Thanks Smile

I don't do Apple and I can't remember where I saw the answer ... but I know I did. Is it possibly option-command ...

There does not appear to be any key combination to accomplish this task Sad Crying

Actually, I did finally figure it out (sorry I didn't reply back here earlier)...it IS the Control key, but the trick is that you have to start dragging the resource and THEN hold control before dropping it into the list. If you hold Control before starting to drag, then it interprets it as a right-click.

The sad part is that I've done it before, but I use my Mac so rarely (and even more rarely for this specific purpose) that I go through this same battle every time it comes up...trying to remember what the "trick" is Stick out tongue
