Please note that the toolbar of the DITA Maps Manager view contains a 
button "Open map in editor" which opens the current map of the view in 
the editor panel. This is an alternative for the drag and drop operation 
that takes a DITA map from the explorer application to the Author/Oxygen 
editor panel.
