I can select text within a document. I can’t DRAG it anywhere. I resort to cut and paste which does work. But…why not have a working drag?
Drag should work.
Make sure you allow a pause between selecting the text and dragging it. OS X may not be recognizing the two as discrete events.
If that doesn’t help, what version of Scrivener do you have, and with which version of OS X? Also, what pointing device are you using? And does dragging work correctly with other applications?
