Rick Holzgrafe <Rick_Holzgrafe@taligent.com> notes that we implied last issue that the Drag Manager's functionality (dragging text to the desktop to create a "scrap" file, for instance) will appear "automagically" in existing applications. It does not; applications must be re-written to take advantage of the Drag Manager. We also are flagellating ourselves for talking about the Drag Manager in the future tense, since it exists already and is supported by utilities such as Dayna's ProFiles. I can't wait for its functionality to appear in Internet applications including Fetch, Anarchie, TurboGopher, and Mosaic.
