This saved me a ton of time when I had to add 20 fields to a list of 200 fields and get them all in the right order. Nice work Kevin!

Great, a huge time saver for us and will now be an automatic install.

Been using this add-on for a while. 1.4 is awesome and worth paying for. The shortname column is back so you don’t have to click into the field to get the shortname, and the drag handles make it obvious you can drag to change order. Very nice!

This is an absolute must-have for any of my sites. There are times when the client needs categories moved around, and using up and down arrows just doesn’t cut it. It also makes preflighting publish layouts *super* easy by arranging them in the order I want first before hiding/adjusting.

If I could give this add-on a 10 out of 5 I would. It provides such a critical UI functionality that is painfully missing from EE2. I highly recommend this as a default install on every EE project.

It just works - nuff said

But why are all these addons needed for functionality that clearly should be part of EE?

Big piece of EE 1.x functionality re-instated. With this - reordering fields is critical. Thanks.

How did I not know about this! It’s shame that we need to install numerous extensions to make EE2.x usable but huge kudos to Kevin for stepping up and making working with EE2.x a bit more enjoyable!

Beyond simple – part of my default install. In fact this is so good EE should make Kevin an offer to have this in EE by default.

simply brilliant. although this has now been merged into Kevin’s other addon, Facelift, which fixes accessories to the bottom of the screen instead of the bottom of the page. Facelift is not on devot-ee for some reason though. Here it is: https://github.com/kevinthompson/Facelift

Works perfectly and comes in really handy when you have more than a few custom fields.

Great extension. Saves me a lot of time manually going into the custom fields and re-ordering them.
