Re: Move line up/down functionality


Hi Johannes,

I would suggest the Move Line feature to be implemented in plugin format. Maybe the integration with the Line Sorter plugin should be considered, but this is up to you.

Maybe you could also consider to add some other line operations which can make your implementation more universal.
For example:
>Insert blank line
>Duplicate current line
>Delete current line

Anyway, thank you for your initiative with the Move Line feature. I am sure it will help many people, I included, to better organize lists with check-boxes or without.

I have implemented the feature in a new branch. Do you think this is a
feature of wider interest? I would be happy to prepare the branch for
merging. Regarding the implementation, should this go in the main code
or as a separate plugin, similar to the line-sorter plugin (or even as
part of the line-sorter plugin)?
