A few weeks ago, we launched collapsible content to help you visually streamline your doc sections. Pretty quickly after launching, we heard some great feedback that this helped doc Viewers more quickly navigate through the contents of a section, but that we could do more to help doc Makers and Editors use these features to further organize their docs. That’s why I’m excited to share that we’re launching drag-and-drop for text today!
Drag-and-drop lets you quickly reorganize tables, paragraphs of text, images and/or headers (with their nested contents). Simply hover your mouse cursor over the selection you would like to move to expose the 3-dot “kebab” menu and bring your cursor over it to activate the “baseball mitt” cursor. Click and “grab” your text (or table, or image, etc.), drag it to its new location while holding down, and then release to “drop” your text.
An example of moving 1 paragraph:
. . . an example of moving a header with nested content:
. . . and an example of moving a table:
You can also quickly “Undo” a move using Ctrl + Z on a PC, or Command + Z on a Mac.
At this time, drag-and-drop only works for items within a single section, but we’re exploring how we might enable drag-and-drop between sections down the line.
We hope this makes organizing your docs even easier!
