Background:
BibDesk offers a special setting "Copying and Dragging > Format when holding Option key"

Problem:
When I hold the option key and drag a citation, I cannot switch windows anymore using the standard Mac-Tab keyboard shortcut.

Request:
Please allow for switching between applications using Mac-Tab while Option-Dragging citations.

thanks for all the good work!

    Not sure what you mean. Switching apps goes through cmd-tab which just works. The option key is a standard modifier during Cocoa dragging operations, so they should always be possible, and when you have a custom shortcut that interferes with that than you have chosen it wrongly (i.e. it's your problem). Moreover, the alternate copying is determined by the modifier at the start of the drag, so during the drag you can change the modifiers for other purposes (that are valid at that point) without changing this.
