H is not easy to move in order when I choose the first one the color change to grey, but I don’t know how to move up or down. Or where to put it? And I don’t know if it automatically are marked

Hello Minerva

When you want to drop a sentence in a new position, you have to click or press on the small white hand (on the right) of the sentence that is in new position.

Does that make sense? It's easy to do but a little difficult to explain, so if you'd like me to describe how to do it again, please let us know.

All the best
