    It seems to be application dependant... but I've noticed certain applications, if you select text and then try and drag it, you have to wait about a second otherwise you just move the text cursor to where you clicked instead of moving it. This is not a big deal to some.. but I'm often dragging chunks of text around, and having to remember to wait a little to avoid having to reselect the text is a pain!

    Just wondering if anyone else at all has this. Or is it an issue other than time? Maybe I just don't know how to drag text properly...

    Then maybe there is some app or service that will make it easier to just drag and not have to worry...

    Don't know of such apps, try asking in the Lion forums if this has been improved in the Lion beta
