Description - 2009-01-26 01:13:52 UTC
In Windows and Linux I am able to drag and drop with a GDK_ACTION_COPY by default, and a GDK_ACTION_MOVE when the "Shift" key is held down. In Mac OSX, "Shift" does nothing different; I still get a GDK_ACTION_COPY action.

I have patches for this already. But its a bit more complex than suggested here. I don't have access at present to the machine with my patches on them, but I will post them within the next few days.

We're moving to gitlab! As part of this move, we are closing bugs that haven't seen activity in more than 5 years. If this issue is still imporant to you and
still relevant with GTK+ 3.22 or master, please consider creating a gitlab issue
for it.
