Photoshop CC: Ability to organize and reorder Paragraph / Character Styles in the Styles panel via drag & drop

There is currently no way to drag and drop styles to move them around in the Character / Paragraph Styles pallette in Photoshop CC. It makes the management of styles difficult once you have more than a dozen or so in that pallette. Please correct this!

Hi Dave, I noticed this hasn't been added as of the January 2014 update. Any word on when we might see this issue resolved?

That's fine. I would figure it would be an easy fix to do this though, given that every other style palette in the CC range allows you to do this. I've pretty much had to do my mockups in Illustrator and leave Photoshop behind so I could just keep my styles organised, so it would be nice to come back.

I think what David means is that Adobe has a 50% consistency policy across their software. In other words 50% might be consistent, the other 50% will not be. If things are too consistent then they become too user friendly, which in turn reduces the need to upgrade in the hope that the next version will be more user friendly.

The only way to stay in business is to create a suite of applications that only sort of work together, but fail in key fundamental areas that you depend on, and then promise customers that the next version will be better.

Actually, what I mean is that due to other constraints, we have not had a chance to add the functionality you've requested.  You may have noted, however, that we've added other functionality to this and other features.

I'm personally a fan of doing the work you suggest, but it needs to be balanced against all the other work and priorities we have.  Perhaps you work in a domain with infinite resources and no constraints?

Just noticed this wasn't implemented in Photoshop 14.1 update - is this something that can be done? Can you also add folders / groups to further organise things as seen in ID / AI?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Rearrange styles in all Styles palettes (Object / Character / Paragraph).


Please include the ability to re-arrange styles in the Styles / Character Styles / Paragraph Styles panels, via drag and drop just as it works in Illustrator / Indesign.

I'm a UI designer, and I like the Paragraph Styles feature, but the inability to reorder my styles is a major drawback. I have dozens of styles in our UI Kit that are all out of order.

Reordering the styles from the panel itself would be ideal, but at the very least it would be helpful if they could be reordered in the preset manager, similar to color swatches.

Anything at this point would be great. Please try to work this into the next update.

It is about time this is included in the next update. It works in other Adobe software, but why does this not work in Photoshop? This is really bogging down my workflow.

As a temporary fix to this problem, it would be good to know if there is a specific location where the style palettes are saved so I can at least edit/reorganize them manually.

This seems like a no brainer. From a users perspective, it's totally intuitive that you would be able to drag and arrange. It's completely frustrating that you cannot, or that there seems to be no workaround. Please push a fix soon, this thread is 7 months old.

This is so frustrating! I use Photoshop for web design so keeping my styles organized is essential to reducing bloat and clutter in my CSS files. I need a way to see which styles are almost similar so I can reconsolidate them and streamline my use of fonts, weights, sizes and colors. This should not have been implemented before it was at least mature enough to use correctly. So far I at least name my styles with a system, but since the palette doesn't even force alphabetical ordering of styles it gets really hard to get an overview.

Big Update for Photoshop today (cc 2014) and still no option for reordering paragraph styles.

Another CC release emerges, and this still hasn't been corrected anytime soon - this indicates that it's not going to happen, it's probably something too deeply integrated into PS to fix. That's the feeling I got from Chris Cox over 9 months ago when he said that the 'normal palette' can't do this. So I'm thinking this won't be sorted until a major rewrite of PS happens.

I'll just keep doing my web design mockups in Illustrator until Photoshop is somewhat more competent at handling styles.

I agree, being able to sort this list is really important.

On top of being able to reorder styles and put them in folders it would be really useful to be able to export all styles directly to CSS from the panel. It's bizarre that such basic functionality has been left out.
