0003392: Add functionality to "insert step" between already existing steps

i just ran into the issue to have to insert a step between already
existing steps.
This seems not possible now, but would be good to have.

Probably an other way could be a field order of test steps / similar to test execution so that you can create a new steps and reorder the same.

On 1.9b4 version, it seemed that the user can not re-order the steps,I'm checking this and will update the foudings later.

//Edit Julian:

do not let us guess what you want to express. in my eyes your comment has nothing to do with the issue described here.

Any news on this?
It is really a pain if you suddenly find out that
step 3 should be actually behind step 4 -- there is no way
to achieve a modified step series except deleting and recreating
all steps in the right order.

Is there an easy way to just implement e.g.
Current step New step
#x #y

and if the user chooses a step in the middle this will just bump all others up by on step?

what about reorder ?
2010-08-04 12:19   
i think reorder should be a good feature .
2010-08-04 13:03   
step reorder already exists, can be done from page that display all test case info
2010-08-04 14:34   
i tried to reorder with beta 4, click on the green arrow, which says show/hide reorder.
Now a button appears which says reorder. When i click on the reorder step button nothing happens, the screen goes back to where it was before (without the step selection).
I also tried to select one of the steps or drag&drop and can't figure out how it's supposed to work (manual also doesn't explain)on how.

Can you please provide a short info how you did this.
Also, does this work in 1.9 beta 4 or do i need to upgrade to 1.9 beta 5 to get this?
2010-08-04 14:44   
FYi for everyone who is looking for the functionality - I just verified on beta 5 - this works. Just click on green arrow - then line edits appear (didn't appear in my beta 4). Just type the number and then click reorder steps.

Bug can be closed.

Please do a search here, to understand is there is an specific issue for this with a patch attached.
REMEMBER ALWAYS to remove the HIDE STATUS filter, because closed issue are not displayed.

I've added a relationship to the specific issue.

If not you have to upgrade to 1.9 beta 5
