MacBook Pro :: Unable To Drag And Drop With Trackpad


Having issues with trackpad, specifically not able to drag and drop Tried changing the setting in control panel (preferences) but with no changes. Also looked at permission associated with a particular file but again ... same problem, its a global. Ran OnyX maintenance and clean up, attempted to use diskwarrior but need to upgrade to 4.4.Had no real chance to search forum yet so the answer maybe waiting to be accessed.

Info:
MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.6.8)

MacBook Air :: Lost Ability To Drag And Drop With Trackpad?
After having my MBA for 7 days I suddenly can no longer use the trackpad for a drag and drop or drag lock. I have both turned on in the System Preferences. All other gestures seem to be working normally. To trouble shoot, I turned off the "Minimize when double clicking a window title bar" in the Appearance preferences--wondering if that interfered. But still nothing. I have tried adjusting the speed of the clicking, but that does not seem to help either. However, this was working normally all week. I have just updated the Airport and some other software update that came across yesterday--can't remember exactly what the other one was.

MacBook Pro :: Cursor Stuck In Drag - Unable To Drop
I am no longer able to drag and drop. I can't drag a file from one folder to another or to the trashcan. I can't pick things up and move them in any application, such as Photoshop or Illustrator. When I attempt to drag something, I click, the cursor picks it up, and then I can't drop it anywhere. Everywhere I move the mouse, the object or icon goes. Nothing I do will make it drop. I have to command+option+esc to open up Force Quit. Once I force quit the application I initiated the drag in, the problem goes away. The problem is not associated with the trackpad. It persists even when using my old USB mouse and with my mighty mouse. I have all one-touch settings turned off. See attached screen caps of my trackpad, mouse, and universal access settings.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Not Working Properly - Unable To Drag Window Around
I was working on my MBP today until somehow it got totally frozen and it did not respond to anything I do including attempt to shut down the machine. As a last resort, I had to press and hold the power button for 2-3 seconds to shut down the machine.

Upon re-booting my machine, now I notice I am UNABLE to drag the window around (like mail, ical, safari..etc) or move icons around on the desktop. I can always drag (or move if you will ) the window around by press and hold down my thumb and with another finger. Now all of a sudden, that does not work for me anymore, and the only way to drag the window is to move the cursor to top of the window, tap twice with one finger, then drag.

I know this sound very bizarre and i am totally baffled by this. I was thinking perhaps when I shut it down using the power button, somehow something was not closed properly and it left something in a limbo state.

MacBook Aluminum :: Unable To Burn Discs / Drag And Drop Is Only Writing A Shortcut

Hardware :: ITunes Unable To Create New Library On External Drive / Unable To Drag Drop Files
I have a brand new MBP. I have a 1tb external drive with 250gb's of music. I have it attached to my mac via USB. I CANNOT GET ITUNES TO CREATE A NEW LIBRARY ON THE EXTERNAL DRIVE. I CANNOT DRAG AND DROP OR ADD FILE/FOLDER.

But get this, I hook it up to my old Dell and I can do whatever I want. I am friggin pissed that I spent all this money on Mac equip and can't get it going. You may have seen my other post where I posed my issue of: 1tb ethernet drive hooked to airport extreme. Above mentioned 1tb hooked up to back of it via usb. I am completely unable to copy, move, or add files using my mac. But guess what. my pc handles it easily and quickly.

MacBook :: Trackpad Unable To Highlight Or Drag Things / Internet Is Very Slow
My trackpad is now having some troubles on my Alu macbook. I can't highlight or drag things anymore. Occasionally it will work but it will be jerky and only highlight bits that I don't necessarily need. This is vital for me as I need to copy parts of statutes etc. as I'm in law school. I think I have installed the firmware update but I'm not entirely sure - if someone could link me to it that'd be grand.

My internet on campus is also extremely slow.. It doesn't have anything to do with the signal either. We have an Apple reseller on campus who said it might be a problem with the airport card.

Basically - should I take it in? Obviously it has some issues but I don't know if I'm being too pedantic or what..

OS X Leopard :: Unable To Drag And Drop Stuff Around
All of a sudden last night I was unable to drag and drop stuff around, copy and paste, run a new program and I have no Spotlight. I've restarted Finder, the whole Mac, reset the PRAM, and even rand DU and repaired the disk. Nothing. Still can't do stuff on it, and it's starting to get on my nerves. Does anyone know of a solution to this? I've read many "temporary fixes" that haven't done anything for me.

OS X :: Unable To Drag And Drop From FTP To ITunes
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.

OS X :: Unable To Drag And Drop / Can't Find Settings
I was wondering exactly how the drag and drop function works. If I drag a file from the desktop to documents, I am assuming it is moved, not copied? If I drag a file from the desktop onto a flash drive, I am assuming it is copied?

Which leads me to: dragging a song from iTunes onto a folder in the desktop and then dragging that folder onto a flash drive. I am assuming the iTunes song will be in the new folder and on the flash drive? I thought there was something weird about having to have the iTunes songs in the iTunes folder?

And finally, if I decided to make an alias folder with songs (let's say it was an artist folder within all the iTunes folders and I made an alias on the desktop), and I dragged that alias folder onto a flash drive, would the flash drive's folder have the real files of the songs?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Copy And Paste Or Drag And Drop
I've recently had memory issues (the mac, not me!) and had to get rid of a load of stuff as the memory was full. I've currently got 1GB free and want to transfer some downloaded heavy TV files onto a USB stick to free up the HD, but I have lost the ability to D & D and C & P.

This goes for moving documents into folders, everything.

P.S. Have got external HD coming but what good is that if I can't transfer anything?

Software :: Unable To Drag & Drop Or Copy & Paste
I suddenly lost the ability to drag and drop and copy and paste. I've looked up previous threads and have done what they suggested to no avail. I've restarted finder; rebooted the computer; repaired disk permissions; and tried to trash the cache file "com.apple.dock.iconcache" but when I ctrl + clicked it to send it to the trash, it was removed from the cache folder but doesn't show up in the trash bin. This is my work computer so I need this resolved ASAP.

MacBook Pro :: Enabling Single Click+select To Drag Windows On Trackpad Of MBP
Before I formatted and reinstalled Lion on my MBP, I could select a window by tapping on its top bar and drag it using single finger on my trackpad. After reinstalling it, I am unable to do so. I have investigated the trackpad features in System Preferences, but it shows only the three-finger drag option. How do I get to select + drag a windown using single tap.
