I can't drag a cross dissolve from video effects into my timeline.  Actually in about 1 out of 50 tries I can.  Then it doesn't work - for another 50 tries.  This is so frustrating.  I am a Windows user and my version of Premieree is 14.9.0 (Build 52).  Why can't Adobe make it easy to do such a simple task and how can I do it, anyway?

I personally never saw a problem but I jumped from 14.3 to 15 (skipping 7 buggy versions) and I don't have a problem in this version.

I think you're right.  After playing aorund with it, I found that I had to be fairly precise about where I dropped it - right at the end of the clip but obviously not beyond.  So it seems like it's more finicky about the placement than I realized.  I'll assume that's the problem and continue to see what happens.  Thank you.
