Can I shift tree nodes via drag & drop?
You can basically shift tree nodes via drag & drop, but only if they shall remain on the same level of the tree - in order to sort their order.
If you desire to shift tree nodes to a different level of the tree, this needs to be processed via cut -> insert content.
How can I change the order of texts on a tree node?
In order to change the order of two or more texts on a tree node, the feature "sort texts" is available.
Required settings, permissions and views
In order to use this feature, you need to possess writing permissions for the respective tree node. Furthermore, you need to see at least one view that is assigned to all texts linked to the tree node. This means: You need to be able to see all texts linked to the tree node.
Last but not least, the feature "Allow assigning multiple texts to a single tree node" needs to be activated in the system settings. The feature of textelements may not be active.
To change the order of texts that are linked to a tree node, the edit mode needs to be enabled.
In the displayed context menu you can now select the option "Sort texts".
Here, you can change the order of the texts via drag & drop. Clicking on "Ok" saves the processed changes; the order is immediately changed in the side bar. As soon as the edit mode is disabled again, the new order is also displayed if the texts are accessed through the tree structure.
