For the relentless proof-readers among us, we've got a quick tip pointed out today by Reddit user SuperNanoCat. When writing in an editable text box on Android, users can highlight a word or chunk of text, then press and hold to drag it around.

This feature has actually been around for quite some time, possibly as far back as Ice Cream Sandwich, but it's a feature most users have only used accidentally.


The feature doesn't appear to work in all text fields, however. For example, if you're editing a document in Drive, you won't be able to pick up paragraphs and move them around. But if you want to compose a message or search query  just right, Android's got you covered.
