Drag and Drop Function not working


FileMaker Pro


advanced 12

Operating system version

window vista home premium

Description of the issue

The drag and drop function does not operate. I have tried highlighting the container box first. It looks as only the physical insert option is working: please confirm if this is a bug or if I am doing something incorrectly. The container field is from one of your start up options and all entries are correct.

Steps to reproduce the problem

All i need to do is to try and drag and drop the file. The file icon moves into the container but will not open when i double click on the icon when in the container box. I have referred to the knoweldge base but the three fixes detailed and including that I was to highlight the container field first did not solve the problem.

Expected result

The file should open when the mouse is placed over the icon and the left mouse key is depressed twice. I have inserted using the old method (off the file in the document screen) and then contianer field works

Actual result

as per above
