           Summary: Move curves with drag&drop in layout mode
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Solaris
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: nicolas.brisset eurocopter com

Version:           1.0.0_devel (using KDE 3.3.0, compiled sources)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.2
OS:                SunOS (sun4u) release 5.8

When reorganizing curves and plots, a nicer way than a specific dialog would be to allow curve drag&drop. This should obviously work only in layout mode so that it is consistent and does not interfere with zooming operations.

THe way I imagine this is:
- when the pointer comes within a given (small) distance of a curve, it changes to a hand (or whatever other form suggests that one may click there and enter a drag event). The curve could also be highlighted like icons in konqueror if it is not too resource-intensive.
- click and drag: the curve follows
- drop on a graph: the curve is moved (or better: a popup asks whether it should be copied or moved).
