Hello All:

 

Is there a way to disable the dragging of text and even table cell contents between cells in FM2015? This has been more troublesome than helpful, especially when authoring in structured FM. Older versions of FM did not do this anyway. I appreciate any tips.

This may be a Windows problem (for which no useful controls are provided). I see some evidence that MS Word added in-app controls to turn it off, suggesting that FM would need an enhancement for it.

 

At the OS level, it appears to require a Registry hack of keys DragHeight and DragWidth, which must be done with some care, as it applies to file D&D, window moves, and likely object ops in various aps. You might not care if Solitaire stopped working, but AutoCAD could be a problem.
