Moving text lines

Recommended Posts

I am note sure if this is already implemented. I searched for that, but couldn't find. If not this is even a feature request.


When I am working with text within a note, especially with bullet points or checkboxes, I would like to move text lines up and down. I know that cut and paste will work, but this is not the optimal solution. I would prefer if there is a shortcut with the keyboard, because when I am editing and notes, my both hands are on the keyboard, but not the mouse or trackpad. Would be very convenient.

For topics that require substantial movement and relocation of bullet points, I use Workflowy.com

Faster and more efficient than Evernote.

This is the reason I rarely use checkboxes - it is too awkward to rearrange items, especially when mobile, because cut & paste can be tricky just using your fingers.


On Android, Google Keep handles this well, with a "list" note that allows you to drag checkbox items to reorder them. Hopefully someday Evernote will include this functionality.
