§ 31 - Drag and Drop

You can drag one or more filesystem images into the Preferences dialog, Help dialog, Operators dialog, Areatools and any open image view and they will load if iToolBox understands them.

Warning: If you drop an image into a text editing field, such as the one in the Script operator, then instead of the image, you'll get the URL of the image. Whoops. So you probably don't want to do that. smile

Some applications support dragging images out of them into other applications; this too will work if the image format, or the format of the local file a URL points to, is understood by iToolBox.

Drag-and-Drop will not work if a URL points to a non-local file, basically anything that begins with http: or https:

When you drop an image into iToolBox, it becomes the active application, and the new view opened for the dragged-in image becomes the active view, unless you drop the file into the Areatools, which activates itself.
