Description lamarcbr 2003-01-27 06:16:31 UTC
Current behavior: The mouse pointer does not change from the i-beam to the 
mouse pointer until the user begins to drag text.

Suggested behavior: Behavior of mouse should change when dragging text. The 
pointer should change to from the i-beam to the arrow on selected text when the 
mouse button is help down after a few milli-seconds and not once the user 
starts dragging the text. Holding down the ctrl key while dragging should make 
a copy of the text or any object, or group of object, being dragged.
Comment 1 lamarcbr 2003-06-17 04:33:57 UTC
Errata: Holding Control key DOES make a copy of the text. Please
ignore that statement. The trick is start dragging, and THEN while
dragging, hold down the Control key.

Issue 12741 has more on dragging and dropping.
