Reorder / Rearrange Video and Audio Tracks
It would be amazing to simply grab a track and move it up or down in the order of the sequence. This was something I could do easily back when I used Vegas Pro. Occasionally, I have big, complex sequences and would like to reorder the tracks for organization purposes or for shipping off to audio master. Thanks!

YES PLEASE. It's insane that this doesn't already exist!!!
This is really something you would expect to be a feature from the very start, it's not a complicated action in the slightest and would get a lot of use, and apparently other video editing programs already have it....
So?? Where is it Adobe?

Imagine paying Adobe $53 per month and still waiting on some basic-*** request like this to get fixed. Moving my business to Resolve.

Extremely basic feature and I'm genuinely astounded that this isn't possible. It's literally a layer re-ordering feature which is standard in most Adobe packages. Unbelievable amount of headache to have to work around this. Extremely poor, and even worse is how long ago this was originally posted as a request.

I tried switching to Resolve too - great solution 👍

I fixed by going to DaVinci... worked pretty well

Premiere newbie here, looking for the "how to" on rearranging the track stacking order. Can't????? You're not serious.
Alex Alves commented
It was requested in 2018, so far in 2021 this feature isn't implemented yet
Ian Flomer commented
It’s unbelievable that we have to ask for this feature. About to leave and go to Resolve.

Premiere guys, just walk to the next room and borrow this feature from After Effects! Such a pain...
Frustrating only begins to describe the effect of the lack of this feature. The break between Video and Audio tracks also needs to be optional. In general, visualization and layout are very personal to the workflow of not only every editor but every project. Lack of customization in the timeline seems rigid and this, with what appears to be a lack of a valid reason for this rigid, non—user-responsive approach.
THIS IS A MUST!!!

Been yelling about this for over three years now. And over those years have started doing more and more projects in Resolve. As of 2021 I no longer recommend Premiere to my students, because of Adobe's inability to properly document its software or address basic functional features like this.

Like with after effects or about any other Adobe program, I'd also like to be able to drag a track (i.e., Layer), including the clips therein, up or down to a different position to organize or to even temporarily aid in a task. Jennifer is right, folks, are you listening?
Jennifer Stein commented
Why are we still asking this question in 2021? Adobe, are you listening?
As was stated before - not having this in the software from day 1 is surprising enough, not having implemented it by now is RIDICULOUS.

@daniel - it's not about rearranging clips - it's about rearranging tracks...

Guys you can use Ctrl+Alt, it works fine..

In the middle of editing, I just decided I need a color matte behind some .jpg images. Premiere will add a new track above the existing tracks. But if I apply the color matte to the new track, it will overlay everything below. So I need to move the new track below the track with the images. It would be nice to be able to do that by dragging tracks.
