The Oddest Bug

I learned on Twitter last night that one bug in 3.9 is the inability to drag text into the WordPress Editor. That’s right, apparently, you could (at least on a Mac) drag text from another program right into a WP post.

Go ahead. Fire up a 3.8 instance and try it.

3.9 allows direct file drag and dropping into the editor (skipping the “Add Media” step), which breaks the ability to drag text into the editor.

I’ve never known this was possible before, so I don’t have a dog in getting it fixed, but the oddity of it is keeping me interested.

  1. Dragging and dropping text seems strange to me, but props to you for following up on this.
