Use the mode where I sort my hand myself
If you have changed the hand sort mode to I'll sort my hand myself, then there are several extra options that help you organize the cards in your hand in exactly the way you like.
Move cards within my hand
In addition to the normal ways to move more than one card, you can use the following to move cards within your hand:
If you have picked up a card from your hand, you can add another one, whether it is matching or not, if you hold the Alt key when you click on the second card.
You can pick up an entire group of cards in your hand, whether they match or not, if you hold both the Shift+Alt keys while you click on the first card to pick up.
Note if you are moving a group of cards that do not form a valid meld, you can only put back these cards onto your hand, you cannot play them onto the table.
If you move the mouse over a card in your hand, or over an empty place in your hand, and hold it still for a few seconds, a small triangle appears. Click that triangle for a context menu with additional options (not all options are available at all times):
Insert a row will add an empty row above the row that you were pointing at.
Add a row below will add an empty row at the bottom of your hand.
Remove this row will remove the row that you were pointing at.
Insert a space will insert a space before the card that you were pointing at, thereby moving cards to the right.
Remove a space will remove the space that you were pointing at, thereby moving cards to the left.
Compact hand now will remove all unnecessary spaces, and remove all empty rows. As a result, the cards in your hand will be organized in the most economical way.
Sort hand now will sort the cards in your hand, as if you had chosen hand sort mode keep my hand sorted. But afterwards, you can still sort your hand yourself.
Show in a grid now will show your cards in a grid, as if you had chosen hand sort mode keep my hand in a grid. But afterwards, you can still sort your hand yourself.
If this option is set, the cards in your hand are always kept organized in the most economical way, but you can still change the order, and add spaces between groups of cards. Since rows are added and removed as needed, you cannot add extra rows yourself if this option is set.
You can set this option as follows:
In menu, click , then choose
or in menu, click , then choose .
Then in the My hand window, if you have selected the option I'll sort my hand myself, the option Keep my hand compact is visible. If you select the option, your hand is kept compact. If you unselect the option, you have full control over the space in your hand.
