If I select Tools, rearrange media, when All media is selected, that list shows only the media linked to the person's Media album and rearranges only the media linked to the person. I can also choose General media to see only the thumbnails for the General Media album for media linked to the person and rearrange that media.
To rearrange the media for facts and families, select a fact or family from the menu and rearrange the Media Album for that fact and family.

None of the 36 media items missing from the list are media attached to shared events. They relate to this particular individual.
When I add media items to a person's Media Album they are added to the individual and not "shared", some individual items from my hard drive are obviously saved to a number of different people.
A check of other individuals indicates that the problem is not isolated to the individual person I originally quoted.
The 38 items in the Media album are saved as individual items not shared, they all appear when selecting All Media for that individual. When General media is chosen only 2 items appear, the same 2 that appear in the Rearrange Media window. The vast majority of these 38 items are very specifically relating to that one person.
All I want to do is to rearrange the order of the media items for any individual, precisely what I thought the function of the Rearrange Media function was to provide.
It is extremely frustrating, any help would be appreciated.

Highlight each thumbnail and look in the right pane to see where that media is linked. A media linked to the person will have the person's name. A media linked to a fact will have the fact. A media linked to their family or their parents's family will have both the spouses names.
When you link a media to a person, fact, etc. In a person's record, a seperate Media album is created for the media linked to a person, each fact and the person's family for each spouse.
With the General Media album open, and the dropdown menu at All media, thumbnails for all media in all Media albums for the person and their parent's family Media album are shown. This lets us see and work on media for all the media linked to the record from one place if we wish without having to go to each individual fact, etc.
But since you are in the General Media Album for media linked to the person, only that Media album is actually open, and you can only rearrange the General media.
To rearrange other Media Albums, select that fact, etc. from the dropdown menu and the Media album for that fact, etc. will open, and you can then rearrange just the media for that fact, etc.
You can't rearrange all the thumbnails showing with the menu on All media because all the Media albums are not open.

I have seen this problem in my media also. So far the only solution I've found, is disconnect all media and reattach in the order you want them. A real pain to do.
