Moving a Group of Sections

Bruce M Aug 07, 2013 07:30AM PDT

I want to build notes for a book structure where a Group of Sections represents a chapter. Is there a way to move or adjust the order in which these groups appear on the left hand tree column?

The basic idea of outline software is to move things around.

Hi Bruce,
thanks for your question.
Currently the tree is available in read only. It is also not possible to move groups of sections.
You can move pages and cut&paste sections.
We will see whether we are going to enable moving of sections and section groups in our future updates.
Stay tuned!

Any followup on this? I created a few sections I would like to rearrange and it looks as if I have to recreate them now. Say it isn't so....

Hello Jason,

drag&drop functionality for moving sections is being developed now.
We expect to implement it in the next update.

Stay tuned!

I would like to see this feature implemented as well, have you had any luck adding this feature?

I have a lot of section groups and it will help immensely to re-order them in a way that's easy for me to find and access them.

Jamie,

Thanks for getting in touch with us.

If afraid there still isn't a quick way to rearrange section groups. I've recorded your vote for this feature. Please note that you can move sections (not section groups) by cutting and pasting to another location/notebook.

Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience.
