Drag-able elements in document window

Postby BrianReynolds » May 28, 2010 8:00 am

Wishlist - drag and drop elements (acts, scenes, beats, sequences, notes, etc.) within the document window. You can do it in the Navidoc, I want to be able to do it in either window. I think it would work best if you could grab the arrow on the left side of the document window (the collapse/uncollapse arrow) and drag the item to it's new location.

Also, would love to have the Navidoc to be a dockable, separate window. I'm working on a dual monitor system (for some video editing) and being able to drag the navidoc onto the other monitor and leave the document window in place would be roxxor.

Suggestions noted.

My thoughts...

The reason we chose to do the drag and drop in the NaviDoc and not the document itself is because it is easy to undershoot or overshoot the section text when selecting in the document. This can leave orphans around unexpectedly.

I agree that having the NaviDoc dockable would be a good idea. I know we've discussed it internally, but do not know what the plans are for implementation.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Cheers,
