Software :: ITunes Won't Drag And Drop Songs Into Keynote
I've had the last two versions of Keynote and just upgraded to iWork '09. In the past I could drag a file from iTunes and drop it on to a slide and that song would be there. Now when I drag it over I get the green + sign, but when I try to drop it, nothing happens. I can still add the same file by using the media browser and searching for it in my iTunes playlist, but that takes significantly longer.

I use a lot of sound files in my presentations and it's much faster and more convenient to find them in iTunes and drag-drop them into Keynote.

OS X :: Drag Songs From Playlists Into Different Order / Itunes Unable To Drag Songs
So over the past few months I have noticed this small bug/glitch in iTunes... and it is very annoying.

I cannot drag songs from playlists into different order. iTunes just doesn't let me drag at all.

I have to quit iTunes, then restart it. It will work for one time, but as soon as I got back to "Library" and then try to go back and edit a playlist, I have to exit iTunes.

Any fix for this?

After one of my recent iTunes updates, I lost the ability to click and drag a song from my iTunes Library to a new playlist. Does anyone know why this happened and what the solution might be?

ITunes :: 10.5.2 Longer Drag Songs/tones/vids To IPhone Or Playlists?
Just like the title says Throughout the life of iTunes, I have been able to do this. Now, I cannot. It's super annoying, as I now have to go and sync each individual file. I've got thousands of files. It would drive me crazy to individually check each one to sync. Drag 'n' drop is much easier. 

The only difference has been that I stopped using a mouse and began to use the Apple Magic Trackpad. I'm not sure if this has had any deleterious effect.

ITunes Mac :: Won't Let Me Add Songs To Playlists
I am running iTunes 10.0.1 and when I try to add songs to any playlist (whether it is on my computer or on my iPod), I can't add to the list. I tired uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes as well as verifying and repairing permissions. Next step is to try to find an older version of iTunes and install that to see if that will resolve the issue.

what might be going on here? The problem seems to have arisen since I updated iTunes.

ITunes Mac :: Cannot Drag And Drop Songs To Another Playlist
All of a sudden, I can't drag and drop songs to another playlist. Again, this is not rearragning one palylist. This is not trying to add songs to a smart playlist. This is not trying to manually add songs to an iPod that updates automatically. I don't understand why, but I can no longer select one or more than one song and drag and drop it to another playlist. I can right-click and select "move to playlist..." and it works fine. Also, my iTunes music folder is read and write.

Applications :: Won't Drag And Drop Media To A Device In Itunes
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.

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

Software :: Won't Drag & Drop In Leopard
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:

20" iMac (aluminum) - 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM
Mac Pro - 2x2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon, 4GB 667MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM
20" iMac G5 (ambient light sensor) - 2.0GHz PowerPC G5, 2GB RAM

Software :: Won't Drag And Drop Anything / Can Select Or Deselect
On my new 17" Powerbook, I can't drag and drop anything. I can only select/deselect and cut/paste, but no drag. This is consistent throughout all my apps. I can manage getting around the finder with cut/paste, but I can't do any graphic work if I can't drag anything (you can imagine).

ITunes Mac :: Can't Drag And Drop In ITunes
I can't drag and drop songs to Playlists, my iPod or anything on iTunes. It's been going on for quite a few versions, and with every new release I hope it will get fixed, but it hasn't. In fact, it's got worse. Usually, I have to reboot iTunes a couple of times and I'll usually get a couple of drag/drops in before it stops working again. It's not ideal, but at least it was an intermittent problem. Since iTunes 10, it's permanently broken. No drag/drops. Ever. It's turned my iPod (which is only 2GB, and nowhere near the memory capacity needed for my 60GB+ library of music; auto-sync is not an option) into a chore to use, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for a workaround, or even a complete fix.

It's the weirdest thing. I can drag a few songs out onto the desktop, then it stops letting me. Only a restart fixes this temporarily.

Applications :: ITunes And Bloated - Can't Drag / Drop Music And Videos Directly Onto Phone
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:..................

Applications :: All ITunes Songs And Playlists Are Gone?
I'm using iTunes 9.2.1 and I hadn't noticed any issues but then today for no reason at all when I connected my ipod touch to my computer to charge it, iTunes opened (as normal) and all my music was missing along with all my playlists. Why did this happen & does anyone know a fix for this?? I checked my HDD#2 (where all my music is located) and it's all there...

Cannot Drag And Drop In ITunes
IF you cannot drag and drop in iTunes for Mac then the issue is your Windows Mouse. Use a Apple Mouse or the Touchpad. It will solve the problem.

ITunes Mac :: Wrong Songs In Smart Playlists Since ITunes 9
In Itunes 9 & 10 I experience that songs appear in smart playlists which don't belong there.

For example: I have some songs from Kylie Minogue.

Just some of them got 5 stars from me.

My smart playlist "M ini5 *****" used to contain only songs which got 5 stars from me but now even songs from Kylie Minogue without a rating got in there. The songs which don't belong there have grayed out ratings.

ITunes :: Music In My Playlists Won't Shuffle
So I updated my MacBook Pro last night and now my playlists wont shuffle correctly. When I turn on the shuffle feature and I have a column selected (number, rating, etc), all it does is rearrange the songs. it's not a real shuffle because I can still see which song is coming next (ie, songs 1, 2, and 3 might become 3, 1, and 2, but they'll still play in that order). When I turn on the shuffle feature without any column being selected, nothing happens. even though the shuffle button is blue, the songs in the playlists play in their exact order. the shuffle only seems to work properly when im playing music out of the entire music library, not one playlist.

All my playlists are carefully put together, but when I sync the playlist from my computer to my phone or vis versa, random songs are left out of the playlists. I've found no pattern as to which songs remain or are lost, but the songs are still individually on the phone or computer, just not present in the playlists.

Power Mac G5 :: ITunes Songs And Playlists Vanished?
All of a sudden my iTunes opened with no playlists, few songs, no photos and no movies. The music files are all still in the iTunes folder. There is a new file named Library (damaged).

Disk First Aid says there is a disk issue, but will not repair it. I am making a leap here since I am not technical, but I am guessing the boot drive is toast.

I have replaced a storage drive (put in a 2nd drive in the 2nd drive bay) for storage. But I have never replaced a boot/storage drive. I'm nervous about it just for that reason.

ITunes Mac :: No Drag And Drop From ITunes To Toast Anymore
I love to create compilations for my friends using the crossfade tool within Toast10. Now apple prevents dragging titels directly into Toast since iTunes 8 or 9. You have to copy them on the desktop first, which is great because you have to keep them there if you want to save your compilation in Toast.

Why is apple always doing such anoying things? Didn't they come up with that drag and drop idea. Now the spoil it. Does anybody know why they do this? Is there any other method to drag them into Toast? Do I now have to create two libraries - one for iTunes and one for Toast? This is absolutely stupid and needless. Absurd.

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.

ITunes :: Drag And Drop To IPhone Etc Faulty 10.6.1?
Prior to this update I could drag an album into my iPhone then drag another and it woud simply add those songs to the list being loaded. Not anymore! Now iTunes stops loading the first album, thiknks for a bit and loads the second drag. Utterly useless! I usually drag a selection of purchased and other songs in every couple of weeks for my daily commutes with this 'new' setup it would take a week to drag in a playlist coz I have to wait for every album!

ITunes Mac :: Drag & Drop From ITunes?
I'm a DJ and I use iTunes as my main music library/management system. Before, I could use iTunes seamlessly with my music production software as I could drag & drop a song from iTunes into my music software, but now, after running the auto update for iTunes, I discovered that Apple disabled this function. For me this option is critical.
