Hi,
what you guys think about left click and drag logistic requests around?

Would make it alot easier to group usefull requests together so you can find it faster

You mean it should work like when I drag some app-icons on my phone around?

Blasphemy!! 8-)

yes, like that, maybe also shift left click, but its very frustrating because you build your logistic requests and some 100 hours later everything is a mess..

I've been playing with Logistics Requests Sorted (https://mods.factorio.com/mod/logistics_requests_sorted), which ensures the requests are always sorted (the same way your inventory is by default). It is so much nicer, and I don't think I would want to do it manually now that there are infinite slots.

I found an point against this: it will work only, if the gaps in the list (slots without item) are guaranteed to survive. Either it is not allowed to drag slots on empty slots, or we can add empty slots.
