Lightroom Forgot the Alphabet

Hey Gang,

Have you seen this?

All was well until I upgraded to High Sierra and then Lightroom forgot the alphabet and also forgot how to count. That is, my list of watermarks is out of order as is my list of file renaming options. I'll attach a couple of screenshots so you can see what I mean. Is your copy of Lightroom doing this? Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Dave

On High Sierra with the most recent version of Lr Classic my file renaming presets seem to order correctly. Don't have watermarks.

Really strange. Google tells me a few others have had this problem, but it's not widespread. I'm uninstalling and reinstalling Lightroom now.

Fixed it. Tried a bunch of things but the solution was to create a new preset template for each of the things that wasn't alphabetizing correctly. New watermark, copyright, file naming template, etc. Creating the new one made Lightroom sort all of them correctly.

Never mind. Everything was sorted nicely but the next time I started Lightroom everything was all messed up again. Not fixed.
