I thought the new drag occured in PSE6. My friend had version 5 and tried to teach me to drag from photo bin into active window but it didn't work with PSE6. I have to have the element open in the active window, then i drag it to the photo bin and drop it into the page I want.
Someone else told me to use "place" so that the file name remains(easier for credits) but I find that so slow. When you do as stated above it just comes up as a layer.
Alisha thanks for the idea of having 2 active windows and dragging inbetween. great idea, I never did that before. Sorta hijacking here but is there a way to keep one window open all the time and the other one change? Idea is to have a template open all the time and change the elements/papers to just drag.
