For skype just URL text is supported (same as when trying to drop image from chrome to skype).

Re-opened, the fix (SVN revision 30334) caused regressions.
e.g. D&D in Now Playing doesn't work anymore.

Just as reference, Image editors uses different approach as you can Copy non saved/selected parts of image in XNView/GIMP/PhotoShop/HyperSnap/.... and paste/DragAndDrop it in Skype

Still not working.

Also if MM5 Window is not in Focus Drag and Drop can't be initiated unless user firstly put MM5 to focus and then Drag and drop.

Video is uploaded to FTP.

D&D from Explorer/TC to NP fixed. Image editors can use their own D&D code, but we're using chromium so it's limited to 'browser' restrictions.

I've elaborated on this issues below and raised the priority:

17) [Reported by user] Tried to drag & drop a track from MM5 to Rekordbox/Mp3tag and it didn't work. (works in MM4)
Note from Rusty: When I try to drag and drop a single track from MM5's tracklist to FreeCommander, it works as expected. However, when I try to drag and drop multiple tracks, only the last track is copied.

17b) Reported by Rusty: Copy and Paste (single track or multiple tracks) from MM5's tracklist to FreeCommander OR Skype fails.

18) [Reported by user] Move a file by drag & drop into a folder from left Tree View list. (works is MM4)

19) [Reported by user] If i try to drag & drop a track from explorer into another program and MM5 is opened in the background, the operations trigger a "down" infinite scroll in MM5 and the only measure is to exit the program.

Added by Rusty: a similar problem is that if the user attempts to drag a track(s) from MM5 to Explorer, as the track is dragged into Explorer, the MM5 tracklist continues to scroll even after the cursor has exited MM5, causing the user to lose his/her position in the tracklist.

To elaborate on problems with drag and drop _into_ MediaMonkey:
20) a) D&D into Now Playing works correctly
b) D&D across a view that allows files to be dropped into it (e.g. an Album view) and then into Now Playing
--> the view gets frozen
examples in which this can occur:
Drag across Playing Panel Element and then NP view
Drag across AlbumName [list] view and then Playing panel element
Drag across GenreName [list] view and then Playing panel element

And, not to forget, the originally reported issue of dragging from MediaMonkey to other apps (e.g. to Skype, Audacity) is still failing (whether for one track or more).
