Refer to this annotated screenshot and the explanation that follows:
This is what I did and what I expect to see happen:
- Go into Google Drive, and in the search box, type in a few words to search for a document. Anything will do here just to show some files. But arrange it so that both documents and folders are shown. One of those folders will be the target of a subsequent move operation.
- Click the left mouse down on a document, and hold it down, then drag it to one of those folders that are shown in the search results.
- At this point, I expect to see something change so that it will allow me to drop it into the destination folder. But it does not work.
- But click on a folder that the item exists within, and then try it, then we see that drag and drop works.
I know there is a context menu,that I can use to move the document. I don't want to use that because it is painful: I have to then scroll and scroll to find the destination folder (and I have a lot of folders). When I use the search feature, I will have a mix of documents and folders, and it is one of those folders that I want to drag a document into.
Is this a bug (or unimplemented feature) in Google Drive or am I missing something obvious?
I suspect this is a bug so I posted into the Google Drive forum.
