Re: [Gimp-user] UI drag and drop issues prevent layer reorder or dialog tab reorder

Hi all,

Yeah, it only fixed it for me for about a week.  I checked and neither
update had been reapplied, so I don't know why it broke again.  Until
your reply, I hadn't heard of anyone else with this problem.  I've
actually learned some tricks to get around some of the issues, like
clicking on UI elements and then pressing the space bar to activate
them (what clicking was supposed to do in the first place).  And
reordering layers can be done through the Layers menu.  I do most of
my work on another computer now that doesn't have this issue though.

Thx for your quick reply.

Yes I also found some shortcut to manipulate layer but now I'm stuck. I have to
manipulate a lot of layer and I would like to store some of them in different
layer groups but it's seems there is no possibility to move them in a group
without drag-and-drop :(

Does it happen even after restarting GIMP? Or that's working at first,
then at some point the drag and drop stops working, but when you
restart, it works again?
And also could you try later GIMP version?
You can get GIMP 2.8.10 on our FTP:

I remember to have fixed some drag and drop issue for GIMP on Windows
in a later version (not sure which, maybe 2.8.6 or 2.8.8, but
definitely later than your 2.8.2). The bug description was different
though, so I'm unsure this is related, but it is better to check with
the last version to make sure.
