Moving Locked Cards

It’d be nice to be able to drag around a locked card by the lock without changing the z-index!

Re-positioning them can be a bit tricky if there are other cards on top.


This may not be so necessary if there’s a keyboard shortcut to lock/unlock cards. Then you could use the shortcut to unlock dragging, make your changes , and then lock it again

How would you indicate which card you want to unlock? Hover over it?

I think this use case is really common. That is, you have a locked card, and you want to position it while seeing it behind other cards. The typical reason to lock a card is so you can have other cards go on top, so it makes much more sense to be able to see it that way when moving it.

Also when you drag a card, at least right now, it moves the card to the top. A key part about dragging-by-the-lock is that the z-index would be unchanged.


Yes, thanks for emphasizing that aspect, @Charles.

Also, sometimes the lock icon might be occluded. Other ways this could work: some keyboard modified click drag (like Alt-drag or Opt-drag) so you can grab any area of the locked card. I know this wouldn’t work on mobile, but maybe there, it could be long press? Just throwing it out there.

One more thing, I think typically, once you lock a card, you want to keep it locked. You might want to reposition it, but you want to keep it behind other cards. Converting a locked card back to a normal one is much less common (at least in my intuition currently).
