Drag & Drop Improvements

One could say that the drag&drop functionality could be improved. I'd like to discuss the options that we have.

One user suggested that it should also be possible to move pages in the view order, e.g. resport entries with drag & drop. atm one has to use the moveup/movedown buttons to accomplish this. Ofr course the program cannot now if one wants to drop a page below the source node in the tree or rather move the page there to be placed after the target node.

Solution:

If one drops a node on another node a dialog could come up and ask the user what to do. Either place it in the view order behind that node or place it beow that node.

I'm no not sure though if that would be more annoying than helpful. To me the MoveUp/MoveDown buttons are sufficient. What do others think?

it would be more intuitive, if you could drop notes to the space between notes, but on a note with options "before", "after", "as child" would be a great improvement.

This has been implemented already in the last release.
