Drag and drop gone

Hi all, I've just upgraded to High Sierra and amongst all the things that have gone wrong, in NWP I can no longer highlight a piece of text and then drag and drop it somewhere else. I can't find a preference to adjust this, and I suspect it's at the system level since it's only since I upgraded. Any suggestions? It' a lot more convenient than cut paste.

Thanks.

Iain.

(It's only in NWP, still works fine in TextEdit. Curious.)

And now it works again. I didn't even relaunch NWP. I guess High Sierra was just thinking about it...

My experience is that I need to wait three seconds for Drag & Drop to work in NWP. Works instantaneously in other apps

(machine is MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012))

My experience is that it works instantly in NWP as well in more or less all other applications I have used. (MBP 15-inch, Mid 2012, 16 GB RAM, High Sierra 10.13.1, NWP 2.1.7)

What I have to do is to click on the text and wait till the "I" shaped insertion point changes to the black arrow, then it works. I can't figure out what's slowing this down! Ugh!

Ah, wait for the black arrow. That works.

I ran etrecheck (www.etrecheck.com), found some old daemons to get rid of, reboot, and we seem to be ok now.

Oh, yeah, and did a safe mode boot, let it stand overnight, too.

The click delay to discern between changing the selection and starting drag is something that's controlled by the Mac system, so I'm afraid if it's not working very smoothly we don't have any great advice to offer. I'm glad some system cleaning removed the unwanted delays.
