Problem when using dragging to copy or move a selection
« on: July 25, 2008, 02:19:20 pm »
I was copying some text by Ctrl-dragging and an information box popped up giving me information on the word I was dragging.  Normally this isn't a problem but this time I was trying to drag to a position on the next line directly under the info box.  Every time I got to that position, the cursor changed to the circle-with-a-slash and wouldn't let me do the copy.  I gave up and did a copy-then-paste instead.

For the next release, you may want to fix this so that SE closes all info boxes when a drag is being done with a block of text.  I don't think anybody needs an info box up during the drag.

Good catch.  If you want, you can turn off that information box by going to Document > [Language] Options... > Context Tagging(R) and turning off "Show info for symbol under mouse".  This will guarantee that it doesn't interfere with text dragging.
