Logic Pro 9 mixer layout question

Is there a way to move the channels in the mixer manually. I'm trying to keep my audio tracks together in the mixer. I did something weird and now my drums in the mixer are scattered all over, making it difficult to adjust levels. I can easily move my tracks around up top in the arrange area but not in the mixer. Can i fix this?

The only real way to do this with true independence is to use the Environment mixer and set it up the way you like there. But that's another kettle of fish you may not want to get into....

You can place tracks in any order on the arrange page, the changes will be reflected on the mixer page.
Thats the problem. I have everything set up the way I want in the arrange page but it's not reflecting in the mixer. For example; kick = ch 1 arrange page...... kick = ch 22 mixer

Make sure the track mixer mode is set to "Arrange" mode, and not "All"?

Go in to the Environment Window, and into the Mixer layer. There you can drag objects around and organize them however you like. When you're done set up a screen set to display it as you want the window to be sized.

But beware of what happens though when you then create new tracks or aux channel strips. It might cause disruption in your carefully set up Environment mixer. What I suggest is that if/when you need to add new channel strips, add one at a time, go in to the Environment Mixer, find where it has been automatically generated, and then place it where you want.

Ditto on this. When it's set to all it can be crazy looking.
