    Can't drag!
    I was working on my iMac last night, with the new OS, and I don't know what I did exactly but it seems I hit some key or key combo, and now I can't drag anything. Can't drag icons on the desktop, can't drag items out of a finder window, nothin.

    I can highlight and select and open things, but no dragging. I'm completely stumped and don't know where to start.

    I use two input devices, a mouse and an Intuos tablet.

    Any advice would help.

    Honestly, I have never seen this, but as a first step have you tried doing a cold reboot? Power down, unplug your iMac from the wall and wait a minute or two then restart.
    That often fixes or unfreezes strange problems.
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    Yep, I should have restarted last night, but just shut down meaning to try it later. I'll see tonight if it's behaving.

    After a restart everything's fine! Thanks for your response, Razormac.
