So today I've noticed that, about one time in 10, when I drag to create a new parent thought (not sure if it hasn't happened for children or I'm just creating a lot more parents) nothing happens.

That is, I drag, release and… nope. I have to repeat the action.

As a side-note I haven't noticed the other problem I reported of dragging to create a parent (or child) and getting the thought editor popup.

Perhaps related?

Matt,

In v9, you can only drag to create a new Child Thought or drop onto an existing Thought.  Hovering vertically above the active Thoguht and dropping will still create a Child Thought.  But 'something' should always happen.  So what are you dragging in? URL? File? Also, what are your Brain's drag and drop settings in the Preferences > UI tab?

Thank you,
Matt

Hi Matt.

I should try to write less in the evening when I am tired. I meant dragging from the parent gate (and normally I drag up).

Actually thinking about this lead me to think again about the previous problem I reported when dragging (either from the parent or child gate) would open the thought properties dialog rather than creating a new thought link.

I recently turned off the "click thought to open properties dialog" feature as I found I was doing it too often and, anecdotally at least, since i did that I've not seen the problem of dragging leading to that dialog opening.

Instead what I am seeing sometimes (possibly about the same frequency) is dragging not opening the create thought dialog.

I am wondering if these things are related. That a drag is being interpreted as a click. When I had the feature enabled that would mean I'd get the properties dialog, now I get nothing (as you would when clicking a thought with that feature disabled).

But if you go back to my original report of the problem and video you can see that I am quite clearly clicking, dragging, and releasing.

Matt

Matt,

I believe you are absolutely right to assume that new behavior of 'nothing' happening is directly related to the previous issue of opening the Thought Properties display and changing the Brain setting for clicking on an active Thought.  So now the question remains as to why the action is interpreted as a click, rather than a click and drag. Would you mind posting a new video?  Again, the only way I can replicate is with a "fast click/drag" that never really leaves the gate.  We're also looking into other Windows Manager apps that may be effecting the behavior.

Thank you,
Matt

Okay I haven't had a chance to record a new screen video but I can definitely confirm it's Brain misinterpreting a drag as a click because I noticed the status bar "Option + Click for properties" message (that you get when you click a thought) appear just now when it happened.
