Mac OS X’s drag and drop text: I had no idea

For the past two years that I’ve been using OS X, I thought Apple got rid of drag and drop in Mac OS X. I cursed them for it (ijjits! Didn’t they invent drag n drop?), and used different tools, and got used to the limitations and used copy and paste more often. But Tim […]
