Arranging Books

Post by NorrinRadd »

Can you possibly create an easier way of organizing books? It usually takes me well over a dozen tries to get dictionaries and commentaries where I want them by "drag and drop."

I've got a couple of blog posts that may be helpful:

"Set Building" - http://www.doctordavet.com/tw_setbuilding.html

"Filters & Filing" - http://www.doctordavet.com/module_set_m ... e_tw4.html

I appreciate the effort, but I'm afraid those are not helpful. My problem is with the part you call "simple" -- the "drag and drop." As I said in the OP, it consistently takes me over a dozen attempts to get the stupid thing to "land" where I want it.

There has to be an easier way.

Interesting, it works fine here. Maybe that's an environment thing like a very high dpi, I don't know.

Also to help track this down, it would be helpful to see a video of it failing several times.
