About Moving Rows in the Chart
For some schedule presentations the order of rows in the chart done by OnePager may not be totally sufficient to meet your needs. Rows can be manually moved up and down in the chart by selecting the appropriate text column cell of the desired row and, once selected, using the mouse drag and drop method on the selected row to place it in the desired position.
OnePager provides assistance by highlighting the selected row first and as the selected row is dragged up or down providing a red line with a pointer to tell you where the dragged row is to be dropped (placed at the end of the operation. Finally, releasing the mouse left-click button causes OnePager to place the selected row in the designed or dropped position.
You must have at least one text column showing in the chart so that you have a text column cell to use in the procedure described above. Only one row can be moved at a time. To move two or more rows to new positions, the operations must be done separately. If there are multiple text columns showing in the chart, any of these text columns in the row to be moved can be used to perform the drag and drop. All text column cells in the row are moved with the row at the end of the operation.
Rows can be moved within a swimlane level or moved between swimlane levels. Moving a row makes the row into a row maverick.
Moving Rows In the Chart - Example
Selecting a Row to Move
To move a row within its swimlane level, select the desired row by clicking in one of its text column cells as shown below:
You can also select the row by using the double-left-click to highlight one of the row's text column cells as shown here:
With the row selected, movement of the mouse up or down causes OnePager to show a highlight red line indicating the direction the mouse is moving and where the selected row will be placed if the mouse left-click button is released.
Moving a Row Down
Below is an example where a row is selected and the mouse is moved slightly down:
If the mouse with the left-click button held down is moved down further the highlighted red line moves with it and indicated where the selected row will be placed if the mouse left-click button were released at that position as shown here:
When the mouse left-click button is released in the position shown above, OnePager moves the selected row to that position as shown below:
Interpretation of the Key on the Highlighted Red Line
The key displayed on the left side of the highlighted red line can point up as shown above or down or in both directions.
Key Points Down
When the key points down the selected row is positioned below the highlighted red line as shown in the sequence of two illustrations that follow:
Key Points Up
The first example above shows where the selected row is positioned when the key points down. Results are similar when the selected row is positioned when the keypoints up.
Key Points Up and Down
The key can indicate that the selected row will be positioned on the highlighted red line as shown in the sequence of two illustrations that follow:
Moving Rows Between Swimlane Levels
As mentioned above, rows can be moved within swimlane levels and between swimlane levels. In either of these cases, after the row is moved, it is designated as a maverick. As a consequence of the change of row membership to a different swimlane, the moved row will participate in any edits performed at the swimlane level such as moving swimlane levels and format edits to a swimlane level and any subordinate swimlane levels.
