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!

Try to switch back from Sketch 3 to the new Photoshop 2015, because a lot of big efforts don't work very well and the software is still buggy. So i looked really forward to the new cc Version with artboards and all the new things for web- and ui-designers. But the missing feature to order the paragraph formats makes it so unintuitiv to work with. If i design a mobile, tablet and desktop version in one file, it would be great to also collect the styles in folders, because an h1 title in the desktop layout is often not the same, as on the mobile layout. Why does this little feature take so much time to implement?
A absolute minimum of help would be, if the paragraphs could displayed in an alphabetical order, so i could rename the formats, beginning with numbers or something similar, to bring it in a useful order i can work with?
Sorry, i'm german speaking and my english isn't very well.

Adding my voice to this request.

It definitely is difficult to manage paragraph (and character) styles once a bunch of them are in use.

The absence of this feature definitely impacts the otherwise versatile nature of p&c styles.

Still not addressed as of November 2015 with the CC 2015.1 update.

I notice that Adobe is trying to focus more on functionality for web and graphic designers in Photoshop, eg. the new Design Space & Artboard features. But It's quite common that these kinds of users have dozens of styles in their documents, and we still have to put up with a messy Styles palette where items can't be moved or arranged into folders (like you can with InDesign or Illustrator).

I get that things on this forum only get addressed based on how many votes it attracts. But there's clearly a subgroup of users here that are going nuts because we can't do basic things like this that help us stay productive, and the complaints have been accumulating here for over 2 years... I feel like it'll never happen and I will have to go back to Illustrator once again to do website layouts, which is just insane.

Is there anyone at Adobe who can give us a quick update on when we might expect this minor amendment to take place?

No wonder so many designers are starting to move to Sketch and other solutions. This is really not acceptable for 2016. This is such a frustratingly simple request that so many designers require.

Can we please have the ability to re-order the styles? As designers who need things to be consistent and orderly, it can be very frustrating/inconvenient to have your Paragraph Styles go: H1, H2, H3, Body Copy, H4, H5.

Is there a way to adjust this manually, like through editing an XML file or something?
Or is Adobe abandoning this because shared styles/libraries are better?

I'd also like an update. I'm pretty organized so this is really frustrating, especially since it's offered elsewhere in the suite

This is not acceptable in 2017. This feels like wondering when Illustrator was going to ever have multiple pages (artboards), long long after competing software offered it.

That may actually be it. However a dedicated window for styles for CSS is much needed

Whelp, four years later and still no update. Adobe sucks at giving designers what they want. Any better alternative yet?

Please make it possible to rearrange character styles in Photoshop.
(presets manager solution doesn't work for non-object styles)

Being able to combine this with layer styles would be a great advanced tool.

Designers have been asking for this for more than 3 years. When can we expect this to be implemented?

There are no organisational tools in the Paragraph Styles panel currently, such as being able to re-order styles and create folders for style sets (Header, Footer, Main content etc) as you would in InDesign. Being able to do this would make the feature far more useful than it is currently with very little development work.

I can't believe we are still waiting for this to be implemented. Seeing how buggy the past 2 updates have been, the dev team is obviously hard pressed to get stacks of new eye-candy features in there while neglecting basic design essentials like the ability to organise paragraph styles and character styles. I reckon the ability to organise brushes, as seen in CC 2018, is long overdue. Adding a new variable font feature that isn't even supported outside Photoshop yet, ahead of addressing an ACTUAL NEEDED FEATURE that is many years old, is very disappointing.

For Adobe, this is unacceptable! For four years - nothing done for this option to happen? We are still paying customers and this should be an easy fix.
