PowerApps design reorder keyboard shortcuts

Is there anyway to reorder controls when building an app using keyboard shortcuts rather than the mouse?  I would like to be able to move an item up or down multiple steps without having to right click, select reorder, move forward/backward each and every time.

 

Thanks,

Scott

Re: PowerApps design reorder keyboard shortcuts

Hi @stgiesbrecht,

 

Please check the following blog, specially for this part:

Richer keyboard accessibility and expanded menu options

Quoted:

"

The Tree view now provides an richer support for keyboard accessibility via shortcuts for common actions. Some of these are

Action Shortcut
Rename control F2
Exit renaming Esc
Group/ungroup controls (Toggling behavior) Ctrl + G
Bring forward Ctrl + ]
Send backward Ctrl + [
Bring to front Ctrl + Shift + ]
Send to back Ctrl + Shift + [

*Note: Focus needs to be in Tree view for these shortcuts.

 

The context menu has also been expanded to provide direct access to these common actions.

"

Besides, once the control has been selected, it is possible to move the control location by the Arrow keys.

Let me know if that helps in your scenario.

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: PowerApps design reorder keyboard shortcuts

The Action to bring item up and down does not work in Chrome browser. I have tried all combinations without luck. It's very slow to move with the menu 😞

 

Please help with a shortcut so I can move elements up and down again. It used to work some months ago but suddenly stopped working.

 

I currently trying to move up and down (bring forward) with: CTRL + ]
