Switched from CS6 to CC 19.2 - PDF Drag & Drop

Recently switched from Dreamweaver cs6 where I could drag and drop any local file to any page. Is this feature no longer available in DW CC 19.2? I was able to drag and drop things defined as assets (image, media, etc.) in CC 19.2, but it doesn't appear that pdf's are considered an asset. My typing sucks - so drag and drop is a great feature for me, would rather not type the URL to each PDF document if possible.

Thanks for your help.

I forgot to mention that drag & drop from Files Panel does work in Design View.

Drag & drop of assets does not work as it did in previous Creative Suite versions.

  • Did you define your local site folder in DW CC?
  • Are the PDF files saved to  your local site folder?

If yes, then  no typing is necessary. Use your Properties inspector to browse to the PDF file.  See screenshot.
