How do I reorder Pico questions, Recommendations and References

During a guideline authoring process, you will often need to re-order Sections, or change order of Recommendations, PICOs or References. You do this by drag-and-drop. 

References, PICOs and Recommendations have a 6 dots "move control". Click it, hold down and drag it to where you want it to be. You can re-order across different sections.
Sections do not have arrows, you just click anywhere on the section you want to re-order and drag it to where you want it to be on the table of contents, drop it when you see the marker. 

Bulk reference editing mode

Every time you move a section or a reference we need to re-number all the places the affected references are used, both connected in the reference tabs or outcomes, and where they are used as citations. For guidelines with a lot of references, this could take a while. If you have many section-moves to make, or want to add reference in bulk, we suggest you turn the 'Bulk reference editing mode' on. It is available from the Guideline settings menu. It lets you edit in bulk and update everything after you're done. In this mode only you can edit sections or references, and the other authors are informed that you have put the guideline in 'Bulk reference editing mode'.

When you are done, you click 'End bulk reference editing mode' in the same guideline settings menu. Admins can break other authors 'Bulk reference editing mode'.
