It is possible to drag a text selection from another application and drop the text selection onto 4D fields, texts, or List boxes. The operating system provides drag and drop functionality for text selections between applications and 4D. 4D offers drag and drop capabilities between objects in 4D forms. When operating system drag and drop is used, the 4th Dimension drag and drop management mechanisms are not used.
