for example, my player start is on the other side of the map (or ten of them are). I want to now move them all to somewhere else on the map. maybe i do this all the time for testing. I can search for it in the list and press f to get there quick, but if the map is large, its a bit tedious to have to drag it left and right 100 times to get it where i want. Would be nice to be able to search it in the list and then drag it from the list to the new location and it move there on its own.
If you hold Shift while dragging an object in the editor, you drag the camera with it. Makes dragging over large distances a bit easier.
But I also like your idea of dragging and dropping an object from the outliner into the editor to assign a new location.
