From Frappe version 6.26 onward, users will not be allowed to re-arrange fields in a form unless they are custom fields. Here are the reasons:

  1. ERPNext is a constantly evolving product and new fields will be added and arrangements will change, frequently. If the user has already re-arranged fields, this creates a conflict. New fields may be added out of context in such a case. All fields have labels that have a meaning based on the section they are based in, and if you move the field out of the section, the context changes and this could be disastrous.
  2. The original motivation to allow rearrangement of fields was because there was no Print Format Builder. Now it is very easy to rearrange fields for printing.
  3. Custom fields can still be placed where ever you want.

We hate taking back features, but in this case, this feature usually leads to a bad user experience and the original motivation also does not exist. This also restricts us from releasing new features and is a lose-lose all the way.

At the point when I was praising the main birthday celebration of my child, I attempted to make it additional uncommon by presenting a few pleasant exercises for the people everything being equal. Everybody there valued my exertion.

Beautiful read, and an insight into an individual I respect and have learned a lot from. Am inspired to trust the process and never give up.

I must say this is a really amazing post, and for some of my friends who provide Best British Assignment Help, I must recommend this post to them.
