No drag-and-drop in Mail? - Mac Applications & Software

Hi Everyone: I can't drag-and-drop in the Preview pane of Mail.app (haven't tried opening the message in its own window to see if problem exists that way), either within the pane or to another window. Is it just my Mac, or is this normal (hard to believe Apple wouldn't implement it in its own app!). Running 10.2.6 on G4/450. Susan -- Dr. Susan Kayser SDSS at FermiLab...

    Default No drag-and-drop in Mail?

    Hi Everyone:

    I can't drag-and-drop in the Preview pane of Mail.app (haven't tried
    opening the message in its own window to see if problem exists that
    way), either within the pane or to another window. Is it just my Mac, or
    is this normal (hard to believe Apple wouldn't implement it in its own
    app!).

    Running 10.2.6 on G4/450.

    Make sure you're clicking on the actual text or graphic, not the
    highlighting on the right side. If you click in the blank highlighted
    area drag-and-drop doesn't work.

    I am definitely selecting text, not blank space. No drag-and-drop. The
    cursor never changes, either; a change is usually seen (from the I-bar
    to an arrowhead). I've checked the message-in-own-window, and cannot
    drag from or within there either, nor from the new-message window.

    Perhaps you are not familiar with the next way to drag text in OS X? I'm not
    at my computer to test this, but in general, to select text you click and
    drag an area as normal. To drag and drop that text you have to click, and
    briefly hold on that area of highlight. After less than a second, you can
    continue with your drag.

    Sounds convoluted perhaps, but quite intuitive once you are aware of it.

    Right on! I'd forgotten about that annoying-but-required wait.

    Thanks,
