Chapter 5. Application Basics > Macintosh Drag & Drop

Macintosh Drag & Drop

Macintosh drag and drop enables you to copy or move information by dragging selections from one location to another:

  • Dragging a selection from one location in a document window to another moves the selection.

  • Dragging a selection from one document window to another in the same application copies the selection.

  • Dragging a selection from one application's document window to another application's document window copies the selection.

  • Holding down while dragging a selection copies the selection.

  • Dragging a selection from a document window to the Finder creates a clipping file (figure 51) containing the selection (figure 52).

    Figure 51. Dragging a selection from a document window to the Finder creates a clipping file.

    Figure 52. Opening a clipping file displays its contents in a window.

  • Dragging a Finder icon into a document window copies the contents of that icon into the document.
