You are using TemplaVoila, I presume. In the standard page module this
is not a big problem - you have arrows to move content elements up/down.
Using the normal page module there is also the button 'insert after'.
The standard page module has much better frontend editing possibilities
than TemplaVoila. This is the reason, why I don't use TemplaVoila!
In overall using the standard page module it is much easier to get
fine editing possibilities - IMO much better than using TemplaVoila.
1) you can have in backend AJAX-based possibility to move content
elements from one position to another - no need to use up/down arrows or
copy/pase - *fast and easy*. Great thanks to Máximo Cuadros Ortiz from
Spain. Compared with AJAX-supported Columns view TemplaVoila is glumsy.
2)It is easy to build AJAX-based frontend editing - in fact Maximo has
made an alpha-level implementation of it and it really works!

Ask Robert if he has time to implement it. I can offer you excellent
frontend editing using the standard page module. But I don't know how I
could do the same for TemplaVoila.
