    Unable to Copy to Another Bin

    I've been seeing this behavior in several versions now, but I'm not sure if it's just our system or whether others are seeing this as well.

    Sometimes, I am unable to ALT+drag a sequence or clip to another bin.  I let go, but the sequence flies back to the original bin.  Only restarting the app clears this issue.

    We do run our systems on extenders, with an axillary monitor in our machine room.  I do notice odd behaviors once in a while when you are monitoring that system, probably because in essence, two keyboards are simultaneously attached.  But this happens when the system is not being looked at in the machine room as well.

    Just wondering if anyone has seen this.  Or are we just stuck with this fluke...

    Re: Unable to Copy to Another Bin

    I see this problem occasionally on the Mac version also. I also have extenders on the system but don't have a secondary monitor in the chain.  I am on 4.0.2 currently but have also been seeing this for several versions.

    Re: Unable to Copy to Another Bin

    It's been a while since I've encountered this, but if I remember right try creating (and then deleting) a blank sequence in the bin you're having trouble with. Then try to alt-drag into the bin again and see if it works. I think this is what I used to do when I had this problem.

    Hope it helps
