Can't drag and drop after upgrade [2.1.5 x64]

Postby RaVlaNa » Mon Dec 10, 2018 12:55 am

Hi,
I upgraded from 2.1.4 to 2.1.5 (x64) recently, but now, trying to make a program, I see that dragging and dropping form tracks to playlist or from tracks or playlist to decks no longer works.
Once you get to the right place with the mouse the '+' sign appears, but when you let go of the mouse, nothing has changed.

In other words, the only option you have is to right click and select the desired option from there, which can be very time consuming.

Has anyone else come across this problem or does any one how to solve it?

Thank you in advance.
PS. Just to make things clear: I use Mixxx on Windows 10, 64 bit.

Hi,

I have the same issue on Linux with Mixxx 2.3.0-alpha-pre x64 Build r6659.
I can´t drag and drop tracks from Rhythmbox into Mixxx-Decks or from library to deck.
I have to right-click then load in Deck 1 or 2.

Does the mouse cursor change as if you where able to drop the track? Is there anything suspicious listed in the mixxx.log file after you try to drop a track.

Yes, it does change into a plus sign, but nothing suspicious in the log file afterwards.

I get no plus sign. I can drag tracks only to auto-dj or analys.

Same here, Drag & Drop tracks onto deck to load for playback isn't working for me either (regardless of running as Admin) since v2.3.0.6660 on Windows at least. Here's a quick overview:

* mixxx-2.3.0-alpha-pre-master-git6666-release-x64.exe 20181224 [D&D notworking]
* mixxx-2.3.0-alpha-pre-master-git6660-release-x64.exe 20181220 [D&D working]

I'm only going by Windows x64 releases as my preference. So, it's been 2-months after last working release that has the ability to Drag & Drop and that it's working since. I believe this function is crucial to future digital mixing as regardless of library users have the option to simply use their methods of loading tracks onto deck(s) and proves extremely useful when mixer isn't able to use it's built-in controls to do so :geek:

NOTE: If Drag & Drop isn't working for you on v2.3.0.6660 with Windows, then try running Mixxx/ExternalLibrary. Browsing external library can be from a media player to even Windows Explorer.

Sorry, I mean to say give both apps elevated privileges.

Interesting:
We have update the build environment to Qt 5.12
