On draw.io, I am trying to move a row in a table, I grab the right hand equals sign on the row to move, but when I move it to a new position the row snaps back to its original position. I am using the online version on Windows 10

When a row is dropped to early, it could snap to original position. Check the following article: https://drawio-app.com/tables-in-drawio-got-a-makeover/ In order to move row 4 to another place, it was drag&dropped slightly over the first row and it became the 2nd row.

Hopefully the article will help.

The equal like symbols, you hold them, and then you can reorder the rows in the tables.

For reordering columns, I checked and it's not yet a feature in draw.io, hopefully it will be a feature.

It's not really designed to work in this way. Just add a row, copy and paste the values, then delete the old row. 5 second job.

Draw.io works in objects. The object is a table in this scenario. It's not designed to move sub-objects (rows) from one object (table) to another object (table).

Draw.io is an awesome tool I used on a daily basis, but don't expect unicorns.
