Description emi 2008-09-11 07:40:49 UTC
I have a project with a lot of libraries (in the Libraries/ folder, ie. dependencies). I would like a quick way to add
the same libraries to another project. But while it seems I can drag the dependency (to other projects' jar or just
plain jars), I cannot drop it.

Normally I would like this scenario:

1. Pick 1 or more items underneath Libraries/ . This can be other Project jars, plain jars, or a global library.
2. Drag and drop this to another Libraries folder for a j2se project.
3. The dragged Libraries are added as dependencies (compile-time libraries).

I'm trying this in the latest 6.5 beta.

This is rather an enhancement
Comment 2 emi 2008-09-11 08:47:13 UTC
Yes, it is an enhancement. What's a bit confusing in this case if that drag and drop is allowed, but nothing actually
happens. So a bug here would be that we need to show some "disabled" state or different mouse-style.
