Moving entities up and down in large hierarchies

Post by Anonymous » Fri Nov 26, 2004 12:47 pm

To move an entity e.g. a Test Condition up or down in a hierarchy list you have a number of options.

To move an Entity one place at a time
As most people are aware, to move an entity up or down one place at a time, you can simply Right Mouse Click on it and select either "Move up" or "Move Down". Alternatively highlighting it and pressing "CTRL + U" will move it up or "CTRL + D" will move it down.

To move an Entity up or down multiple places in one go
Less well known but very useful if you wish to move an entity up or down several places in a large hierachy is the use of the "ALT" key. Holding down the "ALT" key, select the entity you wish to move. Continuing to hold the "ALT" key, drag the entity up or down the hierarchy- a red positioning line will appear. When the red line is in the position you wish to move the entity to, simply release the mouse button. The entity is then inserted into the hierarchy at the desired position.
