folders/files don't want to move TheyR stuck
i posted this question in the G3/G3/Cube forum since
i have a G4, but i'll ask here too.
please help, this is very strange.
there's one partition in my sawtooth that acts funny.
the other 2 bootable partitions work normal.
in this one problem partiton,
i can't move any folders or files from their original positions .
i.e, i can't move any folders or individual files around on the desktop or into another folder in the hard drive.
they just spring back to where they were.
now i CAN drag and drop docs/folders into applications aliases,
and the processing works fine.
i got no fix after
disk first aid,
finder prefs trash,
disk warrior rebuild.
also zapped pram.
i scanned the whole hard drive with virex, nada.
but perhaps i don't have the latest update.
march...maybe april is the latest update if i remember correctly.
than you for any helpful suggestions or diagnosis,
what os are you running??
check finder preferences, "view options"...
is "snap to grid" chosen?
running OS 9.1
finder prefs > general:
"grid spacing" has 2 radio buttons:
tight (more items)
wide (neater arrangement)
neither button has any effect on the "stuck" problem.
and there's no "snap to grid" under "Views"
i remember that this "snap to grid" existed under an older OS but it's not here.
There has been some recent reports of drag and drop problems with CarbonLib 1.3.1 - http://www.macfixit.com/archives/may...l#carlib-05-14
Don't know if this is the same as your problem, but they suggest going back to CarbonLib 1.2.5
Hope this helps.
i also run 9.1
cmmd-J, from the finder, brings up
(also available under "view" menu, not edit (prefs)
desktop icons, should be "none" (as opposed to "snap to grid")
thank you, c-eye,
that carbonlib 1.3.1 update was the culprit!!
as soon as i went back to 1.2.5, problem was gone!!
thank U also fisherking, for the cmd-j hint.
i was wondering where the snap to grid option was.
