Every time I try to drag a photo into a space on their template, it drags onto the Widgets dashboard. Dec 3, AM.
Same problem, brand new out of the box iMac. I restored my photo library from backup and trying to create a calendar in Photos, but I cannot get drag and drop reliably working with either mouse or trackpad. Why is it even a thing I have to enable? Dec 8, PM.

This worked fine until I updated ImageJ to 1. I've noted this behavior for. Mac OS Re: Drag and drop not working as expected on Mac.
Hi Wayne, Thanks for looking into this. The ImageJ home path did not have the issue you mentioned, so I don't think that's the problem, unfortunately. I tried to move the app out of the folder and back anyway, to no avail. A few more details: When opening multiple files via drag-and-drop, it always happens that two files less than the number selected get opened successfully e.
I also noted the same issue with a different installation Fiji on the same computer using ImageJ 1. To end a drag immediately without the delay you can tap the trackpad again. Tap the trackpad with three fingers and drag all three fingers. This has the same delay as the one-finger drag, so you can reposition your fingers and continue dragging. Again, a single tap will end the drag without the delay. When enabled, the drag does not end after lifting your finger s from the trackpad. With Dragging enabled, you may notice a delay when tapping compared to when it's disabled at least in Lion.
This is easily the most fun way to drag. This is like the three-finger drag, but instead of moving all three fingers, you only move one finger, keeping the other two in place on the trackpad. When you do this, you can use a flick gesture with the finger that's moving and whatever you're dragging will continue to move after you lift that finger, gradually slowing down. It works very much like scrolling with inertia.
As long as you keep your other two fingers in place on the trackpad, you can lift your third finger without letting go of what you're dragging. If you wanted to, you could actually keep one finger in place on the trackpad and use two fingers for dragging, but that's a bit awkward. Holding with your thumb and dragging kills the thumb after a while. Then just tap lightly twice and drag with your finger.

You might need to have tap to click enabled under the trackpad settings. That's the best way to do it if you're on your machine all day and prone to repetitive strain injury. Update: I'm now using 3 finger drag available in the accessibility settings area. I turned on 3 fingers for dragging in the trackpad preferences. There also used to be an option on there called Click lock, where you would double click and drag and then the file would stay with the mouse until you clicked again. I can't seem to find that particular option anymore, but I know that if you enable the three finger dragging gesture that it's supported, so you just tap twice with three fingers on the file you want and then start dragging, and tap again when you want to drop the file.
Let's say you are dragging a file from left to right. When you run out of room on the right edge of the trackpad:.
