    Default stupid question, but still....

    I know its stupid, but after accidentally clicking on one of the tabs during team selection phase, the selection display goes haywire(read: I cant get it back to the original look) and its driving me nuts.

    you know, the original is arranged in positional order, and when you select a player, he goes automatically to the top but the rest/unselected are still arranged in positional order. now it doesnt appear like that anymore and no matter what i click, be it Picked, Name, Position, or Condition, it still doesnt revert to original setting.

    anyone can help me out on this?

    Above the positions column, there's a column heading "Pkd" (or whatever it's called now) - click it.

    Occasionally, on FM08, I found it didn't work sometimes so I cleared the selection, then tried to start the match (wouldn't work, obviously) - which reset the sorting order. You can try that too.

    i did that when i was trying to figure out how to get back to the original layout, but if click Pkd, the order's all messed up, ie its not arranged position-wised down.

    Clear the selection and then click the position tab - I think anyway.

    Then the selected players don't go to the top of the list like they do at the start of the game.

    It's bothered me since I first got the game, but it's almost impossible to avoid sorting the lists in a different way at some point in a save. Really annoying.
