No

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open KompoZer
2. Select an html file using mouse and drag'n'drop it
into open KompoZer window.

Expected result:
The html file is opened for editing.

Actual result:
A link pointing to the html file is inserted.

Rationale:
At least I'm used to opening files by drag'n'dropping
them into a program that can handle them because
selecting File>Open and then navigating to the file to
be opened is much slower. Even Notepad can open files
like this and it would be nice if KompoZer was not an
exception.

Environment:
WinXP
KompoZer 0.77

    This Tracker item was closed automatically by the system. It was
    previously set to a Pending status, and the original submitter
    did not respond within 14 days (the time period specified by
    the administrator of this Tracker).

    Didn't know this was going to be automatically closed after someone set this to Pending. I do believe this is a valid bug and thus open it again.

    This bug is still causing problems. The entire program would be better served if there was at least one spot in which we could drag and drop a file from Windows Explorer and KompoZer would open up that HTML file for editing. (This is the way Dreamweaver does it... dropping it on the edit window will put a link, dropping it on another spot opens it.)
