Somehow I've lost some functionality in Kate and Kwrite which I've employed frequently.
In the past, as recently as a couple hours ago, I could select some text and drag-and-drop it elsewhere. If the CRTL key was held, it copied the selection rather than moving it.
I have not changed any system setting, nor any config options for Kate and/or Kwrite recently.
I am certain I managed to hit some key combination which turned off this feature, though I'm lost as to what that might have been.
As a test, just in case it was related to an update, I rolled both editors back to ver 18.12.3 to no effect. Including after a complete power-cycle to be sure memory was cleared.
Any ideas of how I managed to turn off this feature, and how to restore it?
Potentially pertinent system info:
Distro: openSUSE Leap 15.1 Kernel: 4.12.14-lp151.28.20-default Plasmashell: 5.17.0 KDE Frameworks: 5.63.0 QT: 5.13.1 Kate: 19.08.2 Kwrite: 19.08.2 KatePart: 5.63.0
After some experiments I have found I can get the drag-drop-copy functionality by using a middle-drag. Perhaps knowing that will help to determine what was changed to remove the prior method.
I've not had the spare time to make any changes in my keyboard/desktop settings, intentionally anyway. I have reviewed the recent updates and nothing seems like it should have affected the libraries involved in either the desktop, or the editors.
While I have a work-around, I'd still prefer that I could use the CTRL drag to which I've become accustomed, and which still works in
