    since i upgraded to 10.5.2, everything has been fine...

    except... that i noticed today that i can no longer drag and select items in list view. it works okay elsewhere (on the desktop, in icon view, etc).

    anybody have a fix? or anybody seen this before?

    thanks!

    Not much help to you I know, but I've just tried: works fine for me in 10.5.2. Most probably a reboot will cure it...

    When you say "Drag and Select" in list view, are you referring to dragging a box to select (ala Windows), or selecting to first item in the list and dragging down (or up) to select adjacent items in the list (ala Mac OSX)?

    i was referring to dragging a box around the items in a list view to select them.

    this is my first mac, so i apologize if i'm carrying this over from windows! i just could have sworn i used to be able to drag the box in list view.

    argh, sorry if i wasted your time with a stupid windows memory!

    It's alright, to do this just select the first item in the list and drag down to select more items in List view.
