|Platform||PC / Linux||OS||Linux Mint 18.1||OS Version||KDE5|
|Summary||0007392: Reordering tracks in the editor view doesn't work|
|Description||Neither dragging or using Ctrl + ? / Ctrl + ? works.|
In Ardour 5.8 track reordering works as expected, in 5.9 it seems to be locked down completely.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Try the editor-[right]sidebar or mixer-[left]sidebar.
If this is an older session, re-ordering them once there, should fix the issue.
||I had this happen on a newly created Ardour 5.9 session. When I manually disabled visibility of all tracks in the "Editor List" window and enabled it again for all tracks it resolved the problem.|
||I can confirm that in projects created in 5.9 from scratch this problem doesn't occur.|
||My problem (above) happened with a session created from scratch with 5.9 and no template was used. So the bug exists in 5.9 code also.|
Can you test if the problem is still present in 5.10-21-g506b478fe
||Is this still an issue with Ardour 6.0-pre1?|
Should dragging tracks in the editor view be working now or not?
It does not work on 6.9
I would really like this feature.
I always have to google how to reorder tracks if I have not been using Ardour for a while.

Drag/Drop was never used to move tracks. In the editor: Select tracks, then ctrl + arrow up/down

Have a look a Ardour's Menu > Track > Move Selected Tracks ... That shows the keyboard shortcuts.
After using other track based software (in my personal experience) I would say dragging tracks is very common.
I think most new users need to Google how to drag tracks in Ardour, I know I have had to a few times.

Could it be considered to move tracks?
Is there a logic or reasoning written somewhere on why it's not possible to drag and drop tracks?

Simply because it is very hard and time-consuming to implement, nobody has yet volunteered to do it.
You can drag/drop using the Track list in the Editor and MIxer sidebars though.

Thanks, valid point!
Let's hope this gets attention in the future.
