    44Ha, interesting! Could you tell a bit more about how many times you drag/arrange metaboxes on the Dashboard of a particular site, and what purpose it serves? From my (pretty limited) testing none of the users I talked about knew it was possible, and even after I told them most tried it and "shrugged it off" with something like "Aahh, okay, nice"...

    6 Historically arranging postboxes on the old Edit Post screen was somewhat useful in some cases. Unfortunately it was really hard to discover. Then it was added to the Dashboard as an "enhancement" but was never refined/made really good. Now that the old Edit Post screen is obsolete, having this only on the Dashboard is of a "questionable usefulness" :)

    88> I'm not convinced restricting this draggability to only be possible when "Screen Options" is open, is a step forward.
