Drag 'n' paste missing in OS X - Mac Applications & Software

Why can't I drag and paste selected text in OS X like I could in 9.x? Was that feature dropped, or do I need to change some setting?...

    Thanks! Was that an RTFM thing, or was it supposed to be an intuitive
    change? This'll make my life easier. Thanks again.

    I know this is an old topic, but I had a malfunction on my Mac where no
    dragged clippings would show up on my desktop. After a few weeks of odd
    Desktop behavior I turned on invisibles using TinkerTool and discovered all
    the clippings were invisible piled up on my desktop!

    Anyone else seen this?
