I would love the ability to move an element in a straight horizontal/vertical line :

1. Press and hold the SHIFT key

2. Select an element (hold down the mouse key)

3. Drag the element to a new position

This is possible in e.g. PowerPoint and Photoshop.

Hi Ulrich, thanks for the suggestion.

Since holding the SHIFT key and then click on element will perform the selection in “plus” mode, so if we provide this feature, the step 1 and 2 should be exchanged.

BTW, I think ForeUI already provide some alternates for this feature, such as using the arrow keys to move element, or changing the X or Y value directly. So I will put it into the list and assign it a relatively low priority at this time.


Not sure if my issue is related. Say, I have a table with data in it. There are radio buttons on the very first column (single select table) but I have to add radio buttons to every row in the table. That’s ok. But when I tried to move the table, the radio buttons are not moving with the table. I understand that in the context of ForeUI, the radio buttons have nothing to do with the table, but is there a way to move the table along with anything that resides in it together?


  1. Hi ronald, although it is not related to this thread, your expected feature do exist :-)

    Table element can work as container, which means you can embed other element into it. Here is a description: <a href="; rel="nofollow"></a>

    In short, you can drag radio button (with right key holded) into the table cell, thus it becomes part of the table, and will be moved when table is moved.
