No Drag & Drop: CS/OSX 10.3

Discussion in 'Photoshop Tutorials' started by Greg F Walz Chojnacki, Dec 23, 2003.

  1. Since installing OS X 10.3 and Photoshop 10.3, I've lost the drag and drop
    functionallity. That is, I can't drag and drop a file to the P'shop icon
    and have it load.

    The finder focus will switch to P'shop, but the file won't load. This is not
    a problem with any other app.

    Has anyone encountered/fixed this?

    I have the same problem. I have OS X 10.3.2 and Photoshop CS.

    I also have a new scanner: Canon Lide 50. Although I have the Photoshop
    plug-in working I wanted to setup the buttons on the front of the
    scanner to scan to a file and start up Photoshop CS with the file opened.

    It was at this point I had the same problem - Photoshop launches but the
    file doesn't load.

    I then tried associating the file type with Photoshop e.g. find a file
    and use 'Get Info' to change the program associated with the file type -
    again nothing.

    Selecting a file and using 'Open With' again get nothing.

    The Photoshop CD has a manual for AppleScript - perhaps this is a way in
    to PhotoShop using a named file? I don't know Applescript to make a
    start on this.

    It's very poor for PhotoShop CS to not open a file - as every other
    application does, and (for me) version 6 did.

    This is a known bug in the OS X Panther updater.
    If you updated to Panther after installing Photoshop, then the OS
    updater fails to copy some important files.

    The solution is to reinstall Photoshop after installing Panther.
