Select and Drag?

Post by JapanRich » 2007-09-30 21:29:44

Is it just me? I double-click a word, then try to drag it somewhere within the open document and the new click starts to select again instead of dragging. I have to wait a few second s before the text can be dragged. Is this a bug?

That's no bug, it's standard Cocoa behaviour. Try any other Cocoa application, such as TextEdit or Safari, and you will notice the same behaviour.

Hard to believe, but it's true! I've only tried to drag text in Word or Eudora, and never had problems. Isn't this a severe disabling by Apple? Do I have to go back to Cmd-X/Cmd-V? How come I never heard complaints about this? Does everyone just accept it?

Does anyone have a workaround that makes it possible to drag text AS SOON AS it's selected?
