Copying tags by dragging and dropping with Ctrl held down

Tue Sep 23, 2014 12:53 pm

Hi,

Maybe I'm missing something, but I cannot seem to get this to work as expected...
In other editors, I can select an element with its start and end tags e.g. <keyword conref="file.dita#entities/key_prodname"></keyword>, hold down the Ctrl key, and then drag the selected element to another location in the file to copy it. Being lazy :) I tend to use this technique a lot to copy text and/or elements in other apps. In Oxygen, I find it works if I select just a piece of ordinary text, or select text that includes an element. However, if it's just an element that's selected, the dragging action doesn't work with the Ctrl key held down. Can this be enabled please in Oxygen? (I find dragging works if I'm MOVING a selected element.) Thanks!

Hi,

Here's the problem I managed to reproduce on our side (and we'll work to fix it):

If you are editing in the Author visual editing mode and you have Full Tags displayed for each element, select an element, press CTRL, then press the left mouse button again on the element start tag the selection disappears so you cannot drag it anymore.

Is this the same situation you are describing?
If not, please give us more details about the used Oxygen version and if you are editing in the Text or Author visual editing modes.

Regards,
Radu

Hi Radu,

Yes, that is the exact scenario that you've described! And I'm using Oxygen XML Author V15.2, and working in Author mode with "Full Tags with Attributes" switched on.
Thanks

Hi,

Just to update this thread, the problem should be fixed in Oxygen 19.0.
