Description SebastianZ 2015-08-28 08:19:11 UTC
Currently it is only possible to drag & drop files within the IDE itself.

Dropping should also be possible outside of the IDE.

Use case: Dragging a file from the 'Projects' view into the file explorer to copy it or into the browser to open it there.

Reassigning for further evaluation.
