JATS Drag/Drop Actions

Dragging a file from the Project view or DITA Maps Manager view and dropping it into a JATS document that is edited in Author mode, creates a link to the dragged file (the ext-link element with the xlink:href attribute) at the drop location. Dragging an image file from the default file system application (Windows Explorer on Windows or Finder on Mac OS X, for example) and dropping it into a JATS document inserts an image element (the inline-graphic element with the xlink:href attribute) at the drop location, similar to the Insert Image toolbar action.
