Drag n Drop Sort Order on Image Gallery object

System Information

We have a real estate website and the client wants to reorder the photos in the gallery.

If you are actually trying to reorder a 50 image gallery, the drag and drop reordering feature fails before a min is complete, and by 2 min, the user is completely frustrated with the interface.

The existing Strapi Image Gallery can be reordered by clicking on the [+] after photos are selected.
This drag 'n drop feature works if there are < 9 photos, but after this amount of photos in the gallery, the drag and drop in the gallery stops working. Especially under actual conditions with 40-100 images in a gallery.

It’s seems to be a distance thing. Like the drop sort order on images in a gallery works great under 9 places. Then it seems to fail once the dragndrop is on a larger, full gallery photoset.

Maybe this is a factor of dragging sort order on images while using the scrollwheel? Overall, there is some weird behavior that occurs when working out the dragable sort order of the default Strapi Image Gallery object. And it only seems to occur on larger image sets. It is 100% discoverable on sets greater than 40.

Has anyone else experienced this? How have you worked through it?

The only way around this is a huge step in development. Thus we are looking if others have worked through this. I saw that at one point there was an updated Image Gallery Object scheduled for release, but when I click on it, it goes to a 404 page. Looks like someone stopped building this.

What is the way through this? Can we extend and modify an existing component like the Image Gallery? Your ideas are welcome here.

1 see 2 option custom plugin or opening a issue with strapi and hoping they solve it.

so the only real workaround would be a custom plugin
