I'm on Win7 using SQL Dev 4 - EA3.
In previous versions, I was able to drag files from windows explorer or the desktop into the SQL Dev edit window. This seems to be disabled now.
I noticed a previous thread that mentioned this was fixed in EA2. I'm on EA3 and still can't get it to work.
This is exactly what I can't get to work.
From a Win7 explorer (open folder) I try to drag a text (sql) file onto the open SQL Dev application. When the cursor is over the window anywhere it turns into a circle with a slash through it.
Is there some setting that I need to enable?
I can drag and drop as you described, from the SQL-Dev Files pane.
I've tried dragging it to the application, to another open worksheet, etc... "anywhere". It still doesn't work.
I'm not a complete moron, even though I had that typo in my 1st post.
To double check, one of my co-workers even downloaded the EA3 (same configuration as mine) -- he can't get it to work either.
There's got to be a bug somewhere or some setting/configuration that this depends on.
I've used your SQL-Dev product for quite some time & have never had this issue before. Some change in the product is now conflicting with our environment somehow.
Jeff, I assume you are referring to Bug 17374840.
But in any event the behavior has changed between 3.2 and 4.0. In 4.0 it seems the drop is only active on a worksheet (even though it causes a new, unconnected worksheet to open). In 3.2 one could also drop on the Start Page or the upper right empty area after closing the Start Page. No idea why the OP is having issues with Drag & Drop.
