Are you trying to drag the source from an event editor or from the list of sources? You need to drag the source from the event editor.

If what you want to do is use the same source and quote the same text, bring up the event editor, add the source dialogue, write the text, click ok, which brings you back to the event editor, and then drag to Scratchpad. You can now bring up the event editor for another individual, click sources and drag the source from Scratchpad to the other individual's event editor.

If what you want to do is use the same source but quote different material, you can drag a source from the event editor without any problem and then change the text or whatever else is needed. I don't usually do that because I haven't experimented to see how that effects the endnote notations but it can be done.
