Drag Stuff Build Status

Drag Stuff is a minor mode for Emacs that makes it possible to drag stuff (words, region, lines) around in Emacs.


I recommend installing via ELPA, but manual installation is simple as well:

(add-to-list 'load-path "/path/to/drag-stuff")
(require 'drag-stuff)


Start drag-stuff-mode using.

(drag-stuff-mode t)


M-x drag-stuff-mode

To enable drag-stuff globally, use:

(drag-stuff-global-mode 1)

Suggested key-bindings

To activate the suggested key-bindings, <M-up>, <M-down>, <M-right>, <M-left>, use:


Drag line

To drag a line up and down. Put the cursor on that line and press <M-up> and <M-down>.

Drag lines

To drag several lines up and down. Select the lines you want to drag and press <M-up> and <M-down>.

Drag region

A region can be dragged to the left and right. Select the region you want to drag and press <M-left> and <M-right>.

Drag word

To drag a word. Place the cursor on the word and press <M-left> and <M-right>.

For more information, see comments in drag-stuff.el.
