11589: Drag and Drop Form Ordering in View Mode

Printing Generally

Is there a way I can drag and drop forms in view mode of Drake so they appear in a different order? 

To use the drag and drop feature in Drake12 or later software, you must use the Enhanced View mode (as opposed to Basic View mode).

If you are in Basic View, select Enhanced from the toolbar.

From the drop list for the Setup menu in Enhanced View mode, select Allow Drag/Drop Form Ordering.

Alternatively, right-click on any form listed on the left side of the screen and from the drop menu select Setup > Allow Drag/Drop Form Ordering.

Selecting this option allows you to drag each form into the position you need in the list on the left side of the window.

Note that you cannot move a form out of sequence with other pages of that same form. For example, if a form has page 1 and page 2, you cannot drag page 2 to appear above page 1. If moving both page 1 and page 2 above another form, drag and drop them in ascending numerical order (move page 1 up first, then move page 2 below it). If you attempt to drag a form out of order with pages of the same form, you will get a message "An error occurred during the form reordering process. Items with the same sort order cannot be swapped." 

To disable the drag/drop feature while you are in View mode, select Allow Drag/Drop Form Ordering again. When you leave View mode (by exiting the return or by going to data entry)

  • Drag/drop is disabled.
  • You are asked whether to make the form order changes permanent for all clients. If you select No, all form order changes are discard.

Note: This feature is not available in Basic View mode.
