Thanks for your really great and helpful program!

I must confess that arranging and sorting the menu items is sometimes very nerve-racking. Often the menu items do not end up where they should. AFAIK there is only one corresponding hotkey (move item up one level). I would like to propose to extend this procedure (item down one level, item up, item down)

Thanks for your patience.

Welcome to the forum.

The "item down level" solution is impossible in a hierarchical structure.
If you mean to move a container item (a folder) it's impossible because moving a parent inside one of its children is senseless.

If you mean to move an item that is not a container it's not impossible at all but again we can have some problems: the down level containers can be more than one, so which one the program has to choose?

Instead the item up/down solution can be nice and useful.
I could implement it using the up/down keys if you press them along with a modifier key. For example SHIFT+UP moves the current item one step up.
What do you think?

BTW if you noticed some bugs in the mouse drag and drop feature, please report it precisely because if I can reproduce it I can fix it.

Mainly cosmetic, but can be useful anyway

Sorry that I did not answer in time.
The up/down keys with a modifier key sounds good, could be very helpful.
Apart from that no bugs ;-)
