Why does Tiling Nemo break Drag & Drop?

Post by Amandaville » Thu Nov 15, 2018 12:20 pm

Why can I not Drag & Drop a file from Nemo when it's tiled to a corner? For example, I use Tiling to put XED in the top left corner, Nemo in the bottom left corner and Firefox in the right half of the monitor. Then I try to drag a jpg file from Nemo to a Gmail email in Firefox and it won't work. The same happens when trying to attach a jpg to a Facebook post or message. But if I pull Nemo away from the corner of the screen by a few pixels so it's no longer tiled, then it works fine every time. I've seen this happen on more than one installation of Linux Mint on completely different hardware.
