Drag & drop to rearrange

Drag & drop to rearrange

New member | Level 2

Liking the new experience for Dropbox Paper so far! I've got this little issue I want to address. When doing creative projects or writing down notes, there's a lot of rearranging of topics, headers, and photos. Some things are prioritised and then not. Some things make more sense before or after. It would be neat to have a drop and drop feature to rearrange various parts of the document instead of having to cut and paste every now and then. Thanks!

Personally the ordering of files in Dropbox is very confusing for me. Can it not have the sort by name, type, size etc that us users are familiar with?

Hi @EasyGoingPat, you can find out more about ordering table items here

Tip: You can drag items in a list using the dots icon to the left of the bullet point or task!

We can currently drag and drop to rearrange items in bulleted or numbered lists.   This works well and feels natural.  Great job!

 

It would be wonderful to have the same UI and ability to re-order sections of a document by grabbing and moving the header names.  Either in the Contents view, in the document, or both.

 

It may seem like a smalll thing, but the ability to reorganize in this way really means the world when organizing a class syllabus or large document.
