Mac OS X 10.10.3 Photos App Drag and Drop into Mac FMP 12 or 13
13.0.5 (all previous 13's, all previous 12's
Operating system version
Mac OS 10.10.3
Description of the issue
It appears that the new 10.10.3 Photos App breaks drag and drop into a FileMaker Pro 12 or 13 container set for images.
This worked great for iPhoto over many years. It is a key feature of our applications.
A workaround is to drag the photo from Photos to the Desktop and then into the container. That seems to work well.
But this is a big step backward for the FileMaker/Container photo handling experience
Steps to reproduce the problem
Create a file with a container set as an image
Drag a photo from the new Photos App in 10.10.3
The + sign appears but it doesn't drag.
It also doesn't drag if the container is preselected before going to Photos
It does work if the photo from Photos is dragged to the Desktop and then to the container.
Drag and drop has worked since at least FMP10. Doesn't with the new Photos app
That it will drag and drop as it did with iPhoto
Exact text of any error message(s) that appear
Just doesn't happen
photos in Photo app
Any FMP 13 or 12 rev
This is a Mac only issue
Drag photo from Photos app to Desktop and then into Filemaker. Works fine in that case
