    Mac OS X 10.10.3 Photos App Drag and Drop into Mac FMP 12 or 13



      Mac OS X 10.10.3 Photos App Drag and Drop into Mac FMP 12 or 13


      FileMaker Pro


      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.

      Expected result

      Drag and drop has worked since at least FMP10.  Doesn't with the new Photos app

      Actual result

      That it will drag and drop as it did with iPhoto

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Just doesn't happen

      Configuration information

      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
