Move icons between Icon Group in Index (Large List)

I have a LOT of icons in one particular Icon Group in my Map Index. I just found a need to move an icon out of that group, and into a nearby group. I have been just clicking and dragging the icons with no problem, up until now.

The issue seems to be that the group has so many icons in it - the one I am moving is near the top - that I can't "see" the group I want to drag it to, and thus am unable to move it.

Is there any way to move an icon from one group to another when you can't see the icon to move and group to move it to, at the same time?

I don't play around with icons very much and somebody who does might have a better suggestion, but you could see if it is possible to use the market lists organizer in the template organizer to do this. You access this by going to the Design tab on the Templates group, clicking on the Template Organizer pull-down and selecting Marker Lists. You can customise existing marker lists and create new lists with folders (see Help for instructions).

I haven't done this so I don't know if it will do what you want. It's interesting that you can play around with organising Map Parts within individual maps without modifying the map template, unlike markers.

I just found the solution (which I thought I had tried before). If you click and drag the icon down to the bottom of the visible pane, and hold it there, right over the boundary of the pane, it will eventually start to scroll so that you can drop it into the proper group. Solved!
