    Seems you mean both: screens (Amiga GUI element) and screens (physical display).
    Mac mini G4@1,5GHz silent upgrade + Xerox Phaser 3140 + EPSON Perfection 1240U
    Commodore C64C + 2 x 1541II + Datasette + SD-Box

    I miss draggable screens... and do you? I know I'm in a minority unfortunately.

    Of course he does, two Intuition screens, each on its own physical display. AFAIK, AmigaOS 3.x can't do drag'n'drop between those, or can it?

    I think you can drag&drop files on AmigaOS 3.x if the screens have been dragged down from the screen bar, so they're seen simultaneously on the same physical display then. So basically there's some kind of mechanism to interact between screens in this way.

    But when the screens are on separate monitors, you can't even move mouse over each other in AmigaOS. And quickly tested under some emulation setup, dragging a file while swapping the screen with keyboard doesn't bring the file to other screen. But as MorphOS has the mouse movement feature now, it indeed would be really nice to extend it to keep the dragged icon/file with the mouse then.

    Yes, I know, that's what I wrote about in comment #23.

    Thanks for confirming my assumption. I know it wasn't possible with 3.9 and earlier, but may have not been up to speed with regard to the new 3.2.
