Say I have two lists in Google Keep. Is there a clean way to move an entry from one list to another? If neither list is "opened" I can't even select an entry from either one, and if one list is "opened" the other one is inaccessible, so I'm not sure what to do.


I just think the fastest way is clicking one note open, copying all content in it, then open the one you want this content in, and pasting it there.

But I am not sure this is what you mean?

    Yes, that works, but feels very slow compared to what I expected would be available: dragging from one place to the other. Oct 29 '19 at 16:47

    I guess you can also open two windows of your browser, put them open next to each other, open keep in both of them, open note A in the left window and note B in the right one, and the copying will go faster. But it's still copy pasting. Oct 29 '19 at 16:50

The previous answer is correct:

  1. Open the first note.
  2. Select the desired lines, Copy.
  3. Open the second note.
  4. Select the insertion point, Paste.

As this Google Support thread indicates, dragging between Keep lists is not supported, and Google has no plans to add that feature.

BTW, Google Tasks supports inter-list dragging.

BTW 2, if you need to copy multiple checklist items in Keep, click the dots menu, Hide Checkboxes. Copy as plain text, then revert to Show Checkboxes.
