Why can't I drag'n drop an action above another one using Edge? or above a loop action?

This used to work fine, but somehow it got disabled...  very painful to have a create temporary "scope" actions as placeholders to be able to move action...   This issue has been around for months.  Anyone using Edge at Microsoft and part of the QA team on Power Automate?


This is highly frustrating.  Actually, what is even more frustrating is knowing no one in the Power Automate team looks at those forums.

We discussed this and we figured that you will have to have 2 actions inside scope and then you can drag and drop others in between. So steps are...

  • Drag and drop first action
  • Add 2nd action manually inside scope as dummy action
  • Now you can drag and drop as many actions as you want between them.

I dont like it either but seems like this is workaround.

Thanks.   I did figure the temporary workaround, but why did Microsoft removed such required functionality in the first place?  When are they going to fix it? The community morale is not good at the moment, there are zero perceivable investments in Power Automate, even for small requests...
