--- Comment #7 from Yousuf (Jay) Philips <philipz85 at hotmail.com> ---
This is a feature i previously saw and used in Google Sheets and hadnt
submitted an enhancement for it. Excel also has the same functionality, though
different in its implementation.

In Google Sheets, you select the rows/columns you want to move and then the
mouse pointer changes to a move hand when you are over any of those rows/column
headings, and then drag and drop moves the selection.


In Excel, you select the rows/columns and then the mouse cursor appears as a
move cursor when the mouse is on any of the four borders of the selection, and
then drag and drop moves the selection.


This moving mode could also be initialized through an entry in the heading
context menu for those unaware of the functionality and also having a shortcut
key for keyboard shortcut users who are selecting columns and rows with Shift +
Spacebar and Ctrl + Spacebar.
