Hi,

in OE1, I used to drag and drop dbxref from the Dbxref library to the dbxref window on the text editor panel.

I am running OEb37 on a Linux machine and apparently it seems not working.

I guess it is a bug. I do not know if in the previous beta version of OE it works.

It would be possible to have this function working?

thanks,
Erika

    Where do I get a suitable dbxref library to import so that I can test this?

    I just tried this in OE1.101, and although you could drag the dbxref from the library into the dbxref textbox, it didn't actually end up there--it just shrank away to nothing. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    At any rate, dbxref drag and drop does not appear to have been implemented in OE2, but it doesn't seem that crucial to me, since you can use the "Use dbxref" button, which seems at least as convenient as dragging & dropping. Is there some advantage of dragging & dropping that I'm missing?

    I'm going to reclassify this as a Feature Request.

    Hi Nomi,

    I have just tried again the OE1.101 on linux and I should say that "drag and drop" function works well in both directions: from
    the library into the dbxref textbox near the and viceversa.
    To be honest, I experienced problems in using "Use as a def Dbxref" because sometime it works and sometimes not.
    I will try it other times maybe on an other Linux machine and see if it works.

    Good idea to reclassify it as a Feature request. So, the other editors can decide if we need it or not.

    Thank you very much,
    Erika

    Hi,

    I think that drag and drop of dbxrefs is an important feature to have back in oboedit2 as it was one I used a lot in 1.101.

    Thanks,

    Jen
