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

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

Thank you very much, that is exactly what I was looking for.  Great to see all the new features and functions going into the product and the team and community sharing so much to help other.

 

Cheers, Scott

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 + ]

This works with some controls but not data cards.  I want the order of the data cards in my tree view to match the order of the data cards on my screen.  I have to move the data cards on screen in Edit Fields but those changes are not reflected in the tree view.  Any ideas?
