3371Drag and drop: WP <-> OSX apps
- Aug 25, 2006Curious thing, though, Geoff and John. When I drag from WP into (say)
TextEdit, the dragged text vanishes from the WP window as it appears in
the OSX app window -- which of course does not happen even when dragging
between different WP windows. Dragging between windows is supposed to
work like copy-paste, but here is works like cut-paste. I have to
option-drag (as we do when dragging within one window in order to copy
rather than cut) to keep the text in place in WP.
Alternatively, "Undo" (command-Z) makes the text reappear in the WP
window (and of course does not affect what had already been dragged into
the TextEdit window).
From NeoOffice, BTW, text drags into WP as text, but plain text, sans
Is my install again doing things no one else's does??!!
