    How can I move a field easily?

    Asked by leebeer on February 08, 2016 at 01:58 PM

    When you create a new field, it gets created at the bottom of the form (unless you duplicate a field). If I want to move the field to the top of the form, it can take quite a long time to move it, line by line, by right clicking on the field and then clicking Move Up. Is there a better way? I thought I'd be able to drag and drop but it's not working. Is it a browser issue (I'm using Chrome on a Win 10 laptop).

    Actually, yes, you should be able to drag and drop fields directly on your form builder.

    Or, you can drag and drop the fields through the Manage Multiple Fields option.

    You can also try to use the Field Manager App if you want.


    Here's how:

    When I try to move a field in form builder, I just end of highlighting the form. I *do* see the crossed arrows. (Wish could attach a screen shot here but....) Managing multiple fields, nothing happens. Field Manager DOES work. Yay! Thanks for your prompt response.
