In NI Battery it's possible to reorder pads by simple drag-and-drop. This makes creating drum kits very easy. Here I suggest a possible implementation:

  • Swap (Drag without modifiers): Drag one pad onto another pad with the left mouse button to swap the two pads
  • Duplicate (Ctrl+Drag): Copies pad to another location, whilst preserving the source pad.
  • Move (Shift+Drag): Moves pad to new location and clears previous location.

Thank you!

Currently in Impact you can: 

Duplicate (Ctrl + Drag): Copy one pad to another

Swap (Shift + Ctrl + Drag): Swaps one pad with another pad

I'm terribly embarrassed but I swear I tried every modifier combination before I posted this. It is possible one of my Autohotkey scripts was playing up, I'll have to keep an eye on those, thanks a lot DominicB!

PS: I've edited the original question so it's no longer a feature request.
