I have set up a collection to with 'automatically select' products, but it doesn't work as I had expected nd I would like to manully select products instead.

But now the option to chose between these two seems to have disappeared.

Is there a trick to this or do I need to delete the collection and start again?

You'll need to delete the collection and start again.

Seriously? There's no way to switch Collections from Auto to Manual? My list of reasons for not liking Shopify is growing longer very quickly! As a new Shopify merchant I am really starting to see its glaring deficiencies. Is this platform for commerce hobbyists? Wasn't aware of what a handicapped platform this is when I made the decision to move to Shopify.

1. Create a new manual collection (don't add any products yet).

2.  Go to the products page and set a filter to only show products from that automatic collection that you want to change.

3.  Select All Products and Add to your new collection

 

You can delete the old automatic collection because now you have the same list of products in a manual collection
