Reordering of favorited relations

Describe the bug

There is no way to change the order of favorited relations (at the top of an object).

*without removing all relations and adding them back in the order you want them listed

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

    1. Create an object
    1. Click on the relations button to bring up the object’s relations
    1. Add 2 or more relations
    1. Try to drag relations to change order
    1. They do not change order on the canvas

the only way that I have been able to change the order is to remove all of my relations and add them back in the order that I want them to be shown on the object which is sooo tedious

Expected behavior

A clear and concise description of what you expected to happen.

Click-and-drag favorited relations when in the relations dropdown menu to change the order in which they appear at the top of the object’s canvas

Desktop (please complete the following information):

  • OS: Windows 10 (x64)
  • Device: Dell XPS 15
  • Version: 0.18.54

@laurara Thank you for your notice! We haven’t implemented this yet, but plan to do that in the future and sorry for a very long answer

Hey @laurara,
I just changed it to a feature request and adjusted the title. Just edit again, if there is something wrong.

This also seems to be the same as here. Therefore I would like to merge them. Are you okay with that?


Form dev perspective it is the same issue. I suggest to merge it



The Bug
In the new update (version 0.22), the “Relations” menu was updated: relations can be dragged directly into the object as a block, and listed relations now have a draggable “reorder” icon.
The former feature works perfectly, however the latter does not:

(Thank you @lynxlove for confirming!)

To Reproduce

  1. Open an object or set
  2. Open the “Relations” menu
  3. Attempt to reorder the items via the icon

Expected Behavior
When the icon next to one relation is dragged, it can be moved/reordered.

System Information
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Home (Version 10.0.19042)

Reordering in this panel never was possible. However it could change soon :smiling_imp:
