Diagram > Move element

In order to move an element or an element sequence up or down, you must first select the element (or the element subsequence, respectively, see section Diagram) you want to move. Then you have several options:

  1. Use the main menu: "DiagramMove up" or "DiagramMove down";
  2. Right click the element and use "Move up" or "Move down" in the popup menu;
  3. Press key combination <Ctrl><Up> or <Ctrl><Down>, respectively;
  4. Cut an element and paste it into a new location (refer to copy & paste instructions);
  5. Use the following speedbuttons: .

You can also simply drag & drop an element onto a new position, even across branches etc. The cursor will change its shape to Mouse cursor shape when dragging elements is possible on pressing the mouse button if the element at mouse position is ready for dragging. Before version 3.30-12, the dragged element would always be positioned after the element at drag position when you dropped it. From version 3.30-13 on, you may hold the <Shift> key down on dropping it, in order to insert it before the drag position (see hint further below).

When the elements implicated in the drag & drop are marked green, then the drag is permissible:

While they are displayed in red, the drag is invalid:

Dragging works only for single elements, not for selected element sequences.

Hint: Before version 3.30-13 it has not been possible to move the selected element before the first element of a sequence — as a workaround you could only place it beneath it in a first step and then drag the first element of the sequence down after the inserted element. Since version 3.30-13 you may simply press the <Shift> key when releasing the mouse button in order to insert it in a single step above the target position.

Note: Instead of the <Ctrl> key you may have to use an OS-specific default command key. Mac users, for example, may have to press the "Apple key" (Apple command key symbol) instead of the <Ctrl> key in the respective key bindings ...
