So that means you cannot have multiple similar collections.

That was the case. I changed the type of one file (scores collections)
which I created similar to the CD collection (as I wanted to capture a
lot in common between the 2). I have now moved it.

I still think it would be great if we could save a collection again,
when re-ordering or changing the settings of the columns for the various
fileds. I'd prefer that these fileds are part of the collection (that
way when you send it to someone else, he gets your display settings)
instead as in your .rc file. ALso it would allow to have multiple
collections without issue (test/prod/...)

I made again tests, loading alternatively my various collections files,
and it didn't really help. 

I went from my CD to my comics, then to my scores collection (now another
type), fixed the order and size of columns, modified one element to
save, then went back to my CD collection, and it was screwed up (from a
display perspective of course, not the content which is correct)

If you need any file from me, let me know.
