Probably a stupid question, but how do I move a line in a rubric up and/or insert a new criterion other than at the end of the rubric?

I really should wait for @James to respond, but I will do it for him.

With Canvas there is no way to do what you want.  However, if you are not adverse to installing an extension (I believe the javascript file will work with firefox and chrome - I use chrome so I am not sure) and then using a custom written javascript file, you are in luck.  I use the following script all the time and it is a big time saver and sanity saver.

go to James's canvancement page and go to the sorting rubric javascript.  You will need to install tampermonkey(extension) first 

sorting rubric page: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Canvas-Instructional-Designer/Sorting-Rubrics-Made-Easy/ba-p/2721...

Canvancement page (other great scripts you may want): https://github.com/jamesjonesmath/canvancement

I use about 10 of the scripts on the canvancement page with no issues.

I hope this helps.

What I have done is use the duplicate criterion to make copies of the rows in the order I need them.  Copies are added to the bottom, so you just need to copy them in the order you want, then delete the criteria that are out of order or duplicates.

Ron ( @bowmanr ), by all means, go ahead and respond without waiting for me.

I try to write the scripts to the standards so that they will work in any modern browser.

Thanks everyone - sound like Canvas is really making me pay for inadvertently deleting a row from near the top of one of my rubrics...  gnoack: your suggestion looks the easiest!

It is not that difficult to install tampermonkey and use the javascript.  Believe me you will spend more time copying and deleting lines for one rubric than you will learning how to use the javascript by James. 

I suggest you really look into it.

+1 to this, @bowmanr.  James' "Canvancement" has saved me many times when I am building rubrics for instuctors when there are dozens of rows and a new row needs to be added somewhere else other than the bottom row of the rubric.
