Hi,

I seem to have lost the ability to drag file to classic icons on the dock and if I double click a classic document the classic app launches and then just sits there! If I then take the document and drag it to the classic app's icon in the dock, the icon highlights, I let go then - nothing.

The only way to open the document is to open it from the application!

This happens for ALL my classic apps.

thanks

Do classic apps have access to OS X's user-specific directories? e.g. ~/user/documents ?

Hi,

Rebuilding the desktop does not work!

How do I find out if the classic apps have access?

thanks
