Move Up / Move Down

I am looking for suitable translations for two buttons on a dialogue:

Move Up
Move Down

As one would assume, when clicking the buttons they move the selected item in a list box up or down accordingly.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to help me if you are able.

Kind Regards

    You could try:
    move up -- w górę
    move down -- na dół

    But there may be other options too. Is it to be used to move sentences in a dialogue to make them in right order?
    If so you could try:
    przenieś do góry
    przenieś do dołu

    You may want to wait for other comments.

    The dialogue has a list of surnames. Yous elect a surname and then move it up or down by one row at a time.

    There is already a button on the dialogue "Move to Top" which moves the selected surname right up to the top of the list. This had been translated already as:

    "Przesuń na początek listy"

    I don't know if that provides any more information?

    Thank you.

    Yes it helps, thanks.

    I think I would use simple
    przesuń do góry -- move up
    przesuń w dół -- move down

    or alternatively
    przenieś do góry -- move up
    przenieś w dół -- move down

    If you really want to stress that it is by one row at a time then in each case add "o jeden wiersz" right after the first word "przenieś o jeden wiersz do góry"
    or at the very end, e.g. "przenieś w dół o jeden wiersz", if you only want to add this additional bit of information.

    I have also found this, they use wyżej/niżej (up/down). They are good because they are terse.

    Could any of them be what you're looking for?

    If you're looking for shorter versions (I was looking all the time) you can also use:
    w górę, w dół and na początek (to the top), na koniec (to the end).

    If you have more space, you can (should?) use longer variants proposed above.
