Drag and Drop Text

You can drag and drop text within a script editor window or between windows or from a data table into a script editor window. On Windows, pressing Ctrl before dragging and dropping copies the text. On macOS, the text is copied by default.

Drag and drop text in any of these ways:

Select a row or column, pause, and then drop it into the script editor window.

Double-click text in a text field and then drop it into the script editor window. Examples are text in a data table cell and any other selectable text.

On Windows, you can also drag and drop text into a minimized window.

1. Drag the text over the Home Window button Image shown here in the lower right corner of the window.

The Home Window appears.

2. In the Home Window list, drag the text over the destination window.

That window appears.

3. Drop the text where you want it.
