Faster moving of datapage elements when configuring datapage fields
I'm building my datapages, so I make mistakes and have to delete elements/fields. When I re-add them, they show at the bottom of the list in the Configure page. They take FOREVER to move up to where I want them. I spend half my design time just moving them. Could you add buttons to move elements 10 spaces at at time. And would it be possible to make them move faster in general?

PLEASE DO THIS. I have a report that has 200 fields, almost 50 already calculated so I can't use that feature. I now have to add another 34 more fields. Each one near the top. So I get to click the button about 6000 times! Have pity! At least I can just click up about 200 times, then once down, then with it buffered, go do something else until I see the field change it's location.

I agree, better solution maybe to make the ordering based on a drag and drop (similar to the "logic" pages).

Agreed. Some of my datapages have 150+ fields on the details page. Improved functionality in this area would be highly useful.

An easier way would be if we could use CTRL + SHIFT to select multiple lines at once.
Right now we can only select each line one by one using CTRL and then moving that selection up/down...which is effective but the former suggestion would be even faster.
