How can I move items a "long distance" in Workflowy?

Sometimes dragging an item a long distance is not practical.  Here is a workaround....

Tag the list you want to move with something like "#move". Then tag the destination with the same tag. Using the search feature, then isolate the lists and a simple drag and drop finishes the move. Lastly, don't forget to delete both #move tags when you are done.y

    That's a very interesting solution but it would be great to have something a bit more intentional - perhaps a 'move' option in the contextual drop down or even 'cut' and 'paste' The method you propose is a fair bit of extra click through for a core task - the antithesis of what I like about Workflowy.
