Description pfelenda 2004-03-24 13:38:05 UTC
It should be good to have D&D for some types of
files. (e.g. for java, jpg, xml, txt)
Comment 1 Marian Mirilovic 2004-03-24 14:26:51 UTC
I am sorry , but I don't understand what have you asked for ?

Do you mean DnD of files (for example from Windows Commander to
Explorer) ??????
Comment 2 pfelenda 2004-03-24 14:54:57 UTC
Yes, I mean DnD of files from Windows applications, but it should work
for other platforms like linux as well. 
Comment 3 pfelenda 2004-03-25 13:45:58 UTC
I should work in this manner :

- in Editor 
When I drag file in windows application (e.g. from Windows Explorer
or Desktop) and drop it over opened editor, than there should be
opened new editor window with this file.

- in Explorer
When I drag file in windows application
and drop it under a directory in IDE explorer then file should be
  copied (or created link, or moved ) to this destination.
