Applications :: Won't Drag And Drop File / Using Webview
Feb 8, 2010
I am making an application featured like mac mail as in mac mail if we drop a file in message area then that file is as an attached file and we can drag that file to desktop and double click on the file to open it.
I am using webview(I think webview is used in mac mail)
why i cannot drag and drop any file when using safari , and what happens the file auotmatically open while i need to upload it only , extra for that , i cannot write¬† any remark or fill a space while using website related to my work.my work is to upload drawing files using dwf file to a website so the other parties can review and give me review , and then i reply to the remark at the same place and make meeting through the same site.please any body can give any way to correct my mac. latelly i installed win7 only to use it for that website , and iam now changing from mac to win whenever i want to work , this not acceptable to me because it is waste of time beside i like the mac and it working with other application but not for safari.

Every time I try to drag and drop a jpeg into an email I am composing it shrinks it. I have also tried adding jpeg's to iphoto and then emailing them through the button on the bottom. iphoto even asks me whether to use the original size, but when the email comes out on the other end it is always considerably smaller. When I add pdf's it keeps it original size. Does anyone have any advice?
Since cut option is not available in mac, i am always trying to move the files by holding the mouse and dragging. And most of the time i realised i need a function like this. for example i am in folder1/folder2 ..and just want to take file from folder2 to folder1... but since there is not any "go one node above" option, i have to open everythng from the beginning... especially if those folders are located in a deep location such as user/lib/appsup/etc.
When I have an Iphone or Ipod attached to the computer and showing up in Itunes, I was just wondering how to drag and drop movies or music directly to the media device, without first dragging it into the Itunes media library or into a playlist. I used to be able to do this. Since then, I must have updated Itunes or reinstalled it or something. But now I can't drag and drop anything directly onto the media player. I can't create new playlists directly on the media player either (I have to open them under "Playlists" and then checkmark them to be synched. I'm assuming there must be some sort of simple setting in the options that I've changed.
I've recently purchased some webspace to which I upload files via FTP and then link to the files I upload on my various blogs. With a view to simplifying the procedure, can anybody suggest to me a program into which I can drag & drop any file, have it upload in the background, and then allow it to provide me with a user-clickable url rather than an FTP link to the file? I've been using Transmit, which I really enjoy, but I can't seem to find an option to grab a url that's viewable to everybody. Despite me uploading the files to my public_html directory it just copies an ftp:// link, which is of no use to anybody, and I then have to go into my webspace client's file manager system online and grab the user-viewable url. I seem to remember a program like this existing, one that would sit up in your taskbar and be active and waiting for files to be dropped into it for upload at any time but i had no use of it back then.
I dont know if this is in the right area, but I am a mac newbie and I bought a Seagate 1 tb external harddrive yesterday and tried to move my files from my pc comp into the external harddrive (which worked) but when i tried to move my files from my macbook pro to the external harddrive, it wouldnt let me. Is this not compatible for both, and if not what external harddrive would you suggest that i can use as a drag and drop type external hd?
I know it's kind of silly, but is it possible to use Apple Mail's icon and sort of drag'n'drop it to use it on Entourage? I prefer Entourage as my email app, but find Apple Mail's ICON nicer, so would it be possible for my Entourage to use Apple Mail's icon in the dock?
I freaking hate iTunes. Programs for simple tasks like uploading music onto devices should be efficently coded, not resource hogs that are incredibly unintuitive and needlessly complicated. Why can't we just drag and drop music and videos directly onto our phone like we can with just about every other media player? I already have all of my music organized just as I want it on my computer. Just let me drag the folders I want directly into the iPhone without having to bother with a 100mb download that runs like crap.
There's absolutely no excuse why such a simple function needs such a complicated program. Quote:..................
this is driving me nuts. I drag images out of the safari browser all the time. Now with beta 4, it adds a .JPEG extension, even after the original .JPG extension of the original images. So if I drag "mactv.jpg" out of the browser to the desktop, I get "mactv.jpg.jpeg" on my freakin' desktop.
I have a Mac running OSX. This morning we could no longer drag and drop icons anywhere on the desktop. I googled, and have tried a few things - ran 'Repair Permissions' under disk utility, deleted the /Library/Caches/com.apple.dock.iconcache#username#, but neither things works.
I have most of my music hosted on an FTP server, so I'm looking for a way to drag and drop from the FTP server (connected either through Finder, or any other client) into iTunes, and then have iTunes copy the music to my library. That way I don't have to download it to my local HDD, then import into iTunes, then delete the orginal. Just skipping a ton of extra work if I can drag and drop. Currently, I only get disconnected from the server if I try to drag and drop from Finder, and get nothing from Filezilla, and Transmit.
Well, I am learning how important drag and drop is on OSX. There is no Cut/Paste of files and many tricks require dragging on top of an apps' icon. So, I hate the tap to click and I can't stand the unibody trackpad click and drag. I can't seem to keep it depressed and drag across the entire High Res screen. Is there any alternative? Say a key I can hold to lock the click so I don't have to keep the pad depressed?
I'm running a Unibody MacBook with Snow Leopard 10.6.3. I'm having issues with dragging - specifically, releasing from drag. I can start dragging fine, but once I start the mouse pointer won't let go, even if I release the button, and nothing will cause the pointer to drop the item being dragged save killing the application I was dragging from. It's especially infuriating when dragging items around on the Dock, because when you're dragging a Dock icon you can't select items with the mouse, and earlier today I had to use a series of keyboard shortcuts to get to the terminal to kill it.) A restart will usually fix this, but it inevitably pops up again. It happens with both my Mac's trackpad and my Magic Mouse, so it might not be a hardware issue but I'm not sure. I previously used JiTouch for additional gestures, but I don't think it's the cause as the issue crops up even when JiTouch is completely disabled + uninstalled.
I have had this problem for a long as I have had Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. The problem is that drag & drop works intermittently for applications such as the Finder, iTunes, Fetch, etc.
My workaround for the Finder was to switch from list view to column view, but for programs like Fetch or iTunes, I cannot do that. Sometimes the solution is to relaunch the application, but this is not guaranteed.
I am running every latest update available (as of Nov. 18, 2008) for my system and software. I am currently on Mac OS X 10.5.5. The problem also affects more than one computer. These are the computers I've experienced it on:
I was normally dragging pictures FROM Safari TO a folder. I don't want to "Save As...", because it's much more time consuming than simply drag and drop.¬†All of a sudden, the feature does not work anymore. I can only drag images to a TextEdit, creating a Web Archive -- I don't need that, I need to drag them to a folder.¬†Is there anything I can do?¬†I'm using an iMac with Lion OS, and I did update to the last version of Safari.
I recently bought a Macbook Air which I am still getting used to. I had an older Macbook with a mouse because I disliked the trackpad on the Macbook; the Air trackpad is much nicer but I can't seem to drag and drop anything in stacks. Is there a setting or gesture that is not mentioned in the Apple documentation? I have tried everything that I can think of and nothing has worked.
Yesterday I found that I can't drag and drop any files on my desktop. I get the white circle with a line through it when I try to drag anything. I can drag off of my desktop to my HD and to the trash but I can't drag anything back.¬†I've read all of the previous threads about it and have tried all of the poetntail fixes including: ¬†Creating a new user account and switching back and forth
Sleep / Wake
Checking the Dragging option in Universal Access
Checking all of my settings in preferences
(I don't have Air Display, Airparrot or any of the other listed problematic 3rd party programs)I even reinstalled Lion and the problem still exists?
I have created a ringtone and is held on my desktop, the instructions I have is too left click and hold to drag it back onto your iTunes program but when I do this it is not being displayed on my iTunes program.Is there a solution for the Drag And Drop function.
Not sure when it happened, but I can no longer drag & drop from my download folder to the desktop. I can, however, go through 'Find" and drop the file that way. I am running OS X. I'm on a MacBook Pro.
