Hi All,

I've got one more...

Say you have a custom field as dropdown, single or multiple, or any other type requiring multiple values. Imagine, in the backend, you have entered some 20 values, naturally by clicking "Add a new value" each time. Good.

Then later, you figure the order of values is crap, so you need to re-order them. Or you need to insert a new, 21st value - of course as the second in the list. You know what's coming: copying all of them down to new lines to make space somewhere "up there", so your list of values is what you need it to be - long after you started. Yup, been through this a few times now... :sick:

In the checkout process in the backend you have this wonderful 'drag & drop' procedure. Why not consider something similar for ordering/inserting new values for custom fields as well? You have the magic on hand already... throw it in where it'd make good sense?

Thanks for considering!

I also would love the ability to easily reorder values in a custom field for later filtering.
we store the location of a photo in the custom field and I'm just imagining constantly reordering the locations list into alphabetical order every time we do a photo shoot somewhere different. would be great if you could add the ability to automatically re-sort into alphabetical order when needed.

Thanks! B)
