I was doing some story lining stuff in map view, where I have notes arranged in vertical columns and each note is a scene. If I change my mind about order it’s fiddly to make room for a note to drag it up and drop in a new position between two other notes. It occurred to me that it would be brilliant if I could drag a note and hover over a gap between two notes and have everything kind of shuffle out of the way so I could drop the note in the gap which appears. I guess that’s probably not possible but what the hell I thought I’d mention it.
It’s possible, but there are many other possibilities.
That said, it’s a good idea. (In practice, consider using range-select to grab the rest of the column and to move it down.)
Thanks Mark. Maybe if it was a special mode you had to toggle on or off, or something?
Range select is not too bad as a solution, as you say, depending on list size. Also you can reorder in outline view by doing a drag and drop followed by unindent.
This is a brilliant idea. Would be useful for horizontal lists as well (e.g. ctrl-option-drag for vertical, ctrl-option-shift-drag for horizontal insertion).
I would like to upvote this please. Would be useful.
