Drag-and-Drop & Multiselect

Enhanced editing experience provides intuitive interaction with the post content. You can select multiple items not only with hotkeys but also by dragging the mouse cursor diagonally. Content elements, such as grids, images, or paragraphs, can be moved and placed in the other part of the article with a special drag handle on the left-hand side.

Currently, multiselect is available for all CMS-s. Drag-and-drop experience is available on all CMS-s except for the Gutenberg WordPress Editor. We'll release the version with the drag-and-drop experience compatible with the Gutenberg WordPress Editor soon. Stay tuned.

Drag-and-drop

The drag-and-drop feature makes it easier to move elements within an article.

How to use drag-and-drop

Once an element in an article is selected, you will see the white drag handle with dots on the left-hand side. Grab this handle with the mouse to move the element inside the post. It can be either a single element or multiple pieces of content.

Drag handle on the paragraph

As you drag the elements into different grids on the page, a long purple line will denote where you are placing the element or elements. Thus you can make sure you’re dropping in the right spot. There are three options for how you place the element you’re moving in relation to existing elements.

  • If the purple line is at the top of the existing element, the items will go above it, pushing that element down.

  • If the line is in the middle, the items you’re moving will replace that element.

  • If it’s towards the bottom, the items you’re moving will go below that existing element.
