I've just started creating shortcuts for various things on my iPhone. It's been useful, but I find that as I create longer and more complex scripts, I find the interface rather poor. As an experienced programmer, I'd prefer to be able to do things like inserting a step into an already existing script. So far, the only way I've found to do that is to delete all of the steps after the point I want to insert and then re-add them all back. Is there a better way to do this?

You can firm touch and hold on a action and drag and drop it where ever it's appropriate in the workflow.

  • I swear the first version of shortcuts I tried allowed directly inserting actions at a selected point, but yeah, dragging seems to be the only way.

  • @hepcat72, It may have, I really don't remember. All I know with the latest version I have on my iPhone it's DnD that works for me. Commented Mar 1, 2020 at 17:18
