Rewrite Order

This playlist tool lets you change the internal order of a playlist. This has no useful effect inside Lexicon but can be very useful when syncing to a DJ app.

Some DJ apps don't support sorting by multiple columns or you may want to view a playlist on DJ hardware like Pioneer or Denon gear. They may support sorting a playlist but only by a select few columns. Sorting by columns like Energy or Danceability is not possible there at all since they do not know about those.

This is where rewrite comes in, you can sort your playlist by the Energy column in Lexicon and then rewrite the order. Now this is the "original" order so if you load this playlist elsewhere, it will be in this same order.
