OS X :: Folder Jumps Across Desktop When Using Drag-and-dropped?

Jan 31, 2010

When I drag-and-drop a jpeg from a website into a desktop folder, the folder physically "leaps" several inches out of position toward the center of the desktop. This is strange...and annoying, because it makes the folder harder to reach with subsequent drags-and-drops.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Drag The App From The Dmg File To Apps Folder?

Apr 4, 2012

Apple Support Communities On my MBP on Mac OS X Lion, I have problems when I am installing apps. When I drag the app from the dmg file to my Apps folder, and when I open it, the app just jumps up and down on the dock.

When I force quit it, it does not go away, so I have to use Activity Moniter to quit the dock and when I open the app then, it works fine. reasons and solutions for this problem?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Drag And Drop On Desktop

Jun 14, 2012

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

Relaunching Finder

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?

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

Intel Mac :: Can't Drag Docs From Stacks Onto Desktop

Jun 25, 2012

Ever since I have had my Mac, which I bought only in March, I've been totally baffled by the Stacks facility.

I put documents straight from the desktop onto a folder onto hard disc - it appears to have done this. I then check it a few days later - no document in folder and I then have to panickily check the Stacks to see if a copy is in there.

It usually is, so I then have to start again -drag doc onto desktop and then put it into folder and hope the darned thing stays in the folder this time.

Info:stacks, Mac OS X (10.7.4)

OS X :: Won't Let Me Drag And Drop Files Into A Topic Folder

Oct 23, 2010

I'm not too sure what forum this fits in.I'm looking for suggestions for a work-around solution.My files are beyond chaotic. I want to search document contents for a topic (that I have hundreds of files on, but all over the place) using the finder. Then, I want to be able to drag and drop all the files into a topic folder. But, the search/finder window does not permit drag-and-drop functionality.

To me, this is hugely frustrating. It would be the easiest way for me to organize my mad mad files.I'm looking for suggestions for how I can do this? I'm on MacBook Pro OS 10.6.4

Applications :: Won't Drag And Drop On The Above (parent) Folder

Jan 20, 2010

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.

OS X :: Drag And Drop Few Files To A Folder Created On-The-Fly?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm pretty new to mac and a pro windows user. It's not been a month since I bought my first mac and now I'm feeling so comfortable with it.

I have a basic question on how to select a few files, drag and drop it into a new folder in the same folder level

For example, In windows I do this
1. Select few files in C:Temp
2. Cut those
3. Create a new folder and rename it C:TempNewTemp
4. Right click the folder and Paste it.

This is what I do in Mac now
1. Choose the files to be moved into a new folder (When I'm about to drag it, I remember that I've not created the new folder! Grr..)
2. Create a new folder and all my selection is gone
3. Now reselect all the files again and drop it to the new folder (Phew!)

Am I missing the cut feature in finder??? I know that 'Cut' is not much required in mac since everything works on DragNDrop.

I'm not sure whether there is any workaround for people like me who are used to selecting the files before creating a target folder. I'm sure that there should be something which can help me create a folder onthefly while dragging the files and keeping the selection intact.

Applications :: Drag Windows To Edge Of Desktop And Auto Resize?

Aug 31, 2010

Those that have Windows 7 should know what I'm talking about. You can drag your application windows to the edge of the screen and Windows will automatically resize your window to take up half the screen. You can then do it with another window on the other edge and have 2 50/50 windows open. Anyone know of software that will allow me to do this on my Mac?
