Drag-and-drop from Mail.app ti Tbx6 not working?
Sep 03rd, 2014, 12:17pm
 
Hi
Since version 6.0.3 I cannot drag-and-drop from Maill app to Tinderbow file. Is this just my case, or is it by design?
Thank you

I don't believe that mail drag has changed in any way since the initial 6.0 release.

What precisely are you dragging, and where are you dragging it?  (Perhaps best done by email)

I imagined also.

The idea is to drag a message from Mail.app into my Tinderbox file. (instead of copy/paste) and thus when clicking on the URL attribute inside Tinderbow it open the mail in the Mail application.

This is quite useful because I can select some specific emails as notes in a file of "things to do" or some info useful to keep on a side.

I know that in Tinderbox (thanks to Mark Anderson):
Quote:
It does work in v6, but you (currently) need to expose $URL for the note and click the code button.  I think the extra steps are simply existing stuff that as yet hasn't been re-written into the v6 codebase, bearing in mind that the latter has been completely re-written. v6 is 'new' in many ways more than a roll in the version number.

FWIW, the method only works with Apple Mail emails and not MS Outlook should


I did this once. And wanted to repeat ... But then I am unable to drag-and-drop (whereas the first time it did work !)

When it worked, I clicked on the email in the list, and dragged in the tinderbox list.

But doesnt seem to work now.

Best

Correction !

Trying to answer to you it now works. Something in my set-up. But very strange because, for a lot of time (on whole month it wasnt possible to drag-and-drop).

I hope I dont have this again.

It continues to be on/off. Sometimes I can drag-and-drop from Mail.app to Tinderbox, sometimes I cant. Has anyone experienced similar behaviour?

Best to all

No, but only as not using Mail on my main Mac. It's probably worth keeping a mental note of mails that fail. It might be encoding (under the hood), the nature of the content (embedded objects?) or the like. Although no consolation if it happens at present, if the cause can be pinned down more accurately it helps the the chances of a fix. Hope that helps…
