This bug is Can’t drag text into a text input in a form. It was filed on 2006-04-28 at 01:07 PDT.


Inputs of type “text” do not register themselves as drop targets.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Select some text. I used some text in Adium’s inputline, and in a textarea in Safari, and on the page in Safari.
  2. Drag it into an input of type “text” in a form on a page in Safari.

Expected Results:

The input accepts the drop.

Actual Results:

The input fails the drop.


None known.


Dragging to a textarea works.

    Try this:
    First select the Text input box in Safari.
    Then try dragging text to it from another application – it works. It must not be from Safari itself, as you’d then of course remove focus from the text input.
