Lightroom Classic: Can't rearrange presets in Classic on Mac

I can no longer rearrange presets into different folders in Lightroom Classic (10.1) in MacOS. This feature still works on the latest version in Windows (also 10.1)

Right-click one of the presets -- do you see Show In Finder, Delete, and Export?  Or do you just see Add To Favorites and Apply On Import? If the latter, then you've installed the presets into

 

/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

 

rather than

 

/Users/you/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

 

and you won't be able to move them around.  Using Finder, move the presets from /Library/... to your Desktop and restart LR.  Then in LR, do File > Import Develop Profiles And Presets and select the presets on your Desktop.

Glad you got it fixed. There's lots of older information out there that still tells people to install presets using Finder / File Explorer, rather than using LR's "new" import commands (added in LR 7.3), and doing such manual installation can lead to confusion like this.

Do you mean you can't drag a preset from one group in the Presets panel (e.g. "User Presets") into another group in the panel?  Or do you mean rearranging the presets into folders on disk using Mac Finder or Windows File Explorer?
