Most things in FL are extremely easy and efficient, so as a general rule
if it seems awkward, there is usually a better way!

This depends on which version of the program you are using - its
different between fruityloops 3.xx and FLStudio 4.1. New functions
relating to this have been released in the latest 4.12 public beta,
which make it much easier - so you might want to check that out if you
haven't already done so.  It can be downloaded from the official forums.

So if you let us know which version you have, then we can help you out.

You can change the listing order of patterns by selecting on in the
playlist and pressing Alt+Up Arrow or Alt+Down Arrow.

Incidentally, have you found the clone pattern function yet?  Just
select a pattern in the playlist and press Shift+Ctrl+C.

hope that helps,
